When I wrote this story of Harry and Piff, I thought back to my own relationships raising my little ones.
Piff's character is based physically on my dog Sophie, but emotionally she has the characteristics of a child.
Harry on the other hand is an instant parent who like any other parent on the planet, loses patience at some point.
My hope is that through the entertaining story, children can learn family dynamics aren't always easy, but the love between a parent and child grows deeper even with challenging situations.
Piff is tenderhearted, sweet, and cries over everything.
Harry is cranky, set in his ways, but can't help but love his new family member, Piff.
Together, they work on their relationship and the outcome is a richer life for both of them.
