Shorty Stories: A Story about a Dog and Her Famous Wheels introduces young readers and their families to a very special canine. Based on the experiences of the author’s own much-loved pet, this story shows how we can learn to overcome difficulties and adapt to our circumstances.

When Shorty injures her spine, paralyzing her back legs, the veterinarian tells her mommy that the dog will never be able to walk again. Shorty learns to pull herself around with only her front legs, but she is very sad that she can no longer run and play. Even her little brother, Brownie, can’t seem to cheer her up. When Mommy finds a wheelchair for her, Shorty has to learn to move around in a whole new way, and she and her friends are happy to soon find that Shorty’s disability does not need to slow her down.

Shorty Stories: A Story about a Dog and Her Famous Wheels helps children understand that everyone has different abilities and challenges, and parents will appreciate the positive message of this engaging and warm-hearted tale.

Reader Review
She hopes parents and teachers will use the book as a teaching tool to talk to kids about differences and disabilities. “The idea first came to me when I was walking with Shorty and we met a man in a wheelchair. His three young daughters were walking with him, and they all ran over to Shorty. The girls kept saying, ‘Look, Daddy! Like you!’ The dad had tears in his eyes.”
