Smokey, the miniature apricot poodle, is blessed. But can it last? With the arrival of a new baby, he struggles to adjust to his new place in the family. After several failed tactics, he ingeniously teaches the baby how to behave around him so they may co-exist peacefully. He realizes that there’s enough love for everyone in the family, and also gains a new best friend. We’ve heard the sad stories. The once beloved pooch is given away after the birth of a child due to “aggressive” behavior. Hopefully, by creatively educating small children how to behave around dogs, more pets can stay with their families.
Kara Hamilton is a San Francisco-based actress and model with leading roles in films, commercials and advertising campaigns. She holds a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Florida State University where she regularly wrote for ‘The Sunshine Network’ (Currently Fox Sports Sun) and Florida A&M’s newspaper. She lives in a house of rocks with one husband, two children, three chickens and four battery-operated fish. Before the children, came the dog – a dog she loved to bits and wanted to peacefully coexist with her then-new baby. She desired a creative and entertaining way to teach her child (as well as others) how to properly behave around dogs. Completely based on Kara’s life story, the picture book A New Leash On Life was born.
