Angel in a Dog Suit is a true story, endorsed by the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. This happily-ever-after rhyming dog tale takes us on a heart-warming yet bumpy journey through the life of one tiny dog Ruby, from puppy mill survivor to her love-filled forever home with the authors.

They are currently writing curriculum around the book, which will be introduced to Ontario elementary schools in September 2015.
