Poodle and Doodle to Benefit PAWS



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


West Chester, OH - (June 3, 2010) -- Children's author, Donna J. Shepherd, will be will be signing copies of her latest book, Poodle and Doodle, at Dogfest from 11 am – 5 pm next Saturday and Sunday June 12 –13.


In Poodle and Doodle (Guardian Angel Publishing), Angel, a twelve-pound prissy poodle, is none too happy when Leah brings home Scruffy, a seventy-five pound clumsy Labradoodle. Why ever would Leah want another pet when she had the perfect dog already? Children love Donna J. Shepherd's humorous rhymes while keeping a sharp lookout for hidden bones in the delightful illustrations by Jack Foster.


Donna Shepherd will donate 10% of the purchase price of her fun and colorful children's picture book to PAWS. Dog Fest is hosted by the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter in Butler County which houses dogs and cats until they are adopted into their own forever, loving home.


Dog Fest originated in 1999 as a community event for West Chester where people could bring their dog or dogs for a day of fun with just a few events and booths, exhibitors and entertainers. Dog Fest 2010 will draw over 15,000 people and their canine friends, 8 food vendors, 110+ booths, entertainment, demonstrations, contests, and food for the canines and their humans too!


Many rescues exhibit at Dog Fest and dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages are adopted every year. Dog Fest also provides an opportunity for you and your dog to just come out and have fun, where your dog can participate in games, contests, and even a doggie parade!


Be sure to stop by Donna Shepherd's table in the PAWS booth. She'll have coloring pages for the children, treats for the dogs, a Poodle Hidden Picture Puzzle for young and old, and a real live doodle to pet.

The event will be held At the Voice of America Museum Park, 8070 Tylersville Road in
West Chester, Ohio. Visit http://www.dog-fest.org for more information and directions to the park.
