What Folks aRE saying
“Adorable story of a loving dog and his bedtime escapades. Thanks for the ARC our daughter age 4 enjoys it very much, we have our own dog and love to see other doggies come to life as our pete does.”
“This was a cute story, and my 2 year old loved reading about the doggies! I loved that the daddy reminded the dogs to let mama sleep.”
“THE BEST BOOK YET! MOMBIE CERTIFIED!!!!!!! Seriously. If you are a tired mom trying to find the right bedtime story for your child, THIS is the right book.”
“Adorable illustrations and cute story. My daughter loved it!”
“This story was fun and whimsical, with the doggies in the house disrupting Papa’s attempts to get a good night’s sleep. Just like kids, but with plenty of paws! I especially liked the tooth brushing session and the puppy with the electric toothbrush. And Mom’s ability to sleep right through every disturbance! I can’t see any young child not liking this story of cute pet hijinks.”
The Real-Life Stories Behind the Book
Before I knew Molly Paws, I had won a stuffed wolf toy at a local county fair a few year back. I named him Wolfy and when my wife and I moved to our house, I put him in one of the chairs in the living room across from where I usually sit on the couch. Molly Paws loves to lay on chairs and claimed the one with Wolfy as hers. Molly never treated him like a chew toy and didn’t seem to mind the stuffed toy sharing her space. She even took to snuggling up to Wolfy like a pillow for naps. Wolfy became Woofy during the proofing process because we thought it would be a cute detail to add.
As a part or our routine, I let the girls out each night between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. to potty. Marley has never liked going outside, even when she was a puppy for potty training. Sometimes she would go right away, but most of the time she would sniff around. And sniff some more. Then sniff other things. And then forget that she had to go potty. We’d come inside and she’s be asking to go outside right away because she remembered that she still needs to go potty. While she has outgrown it mostly, she still gets what we call “Puppy Brain” where she goes out and then gets distracted.
