Tasha is a German Shepherd with a special purpose. As a graduate of the Summit Assistance Dogs school, she has the skills to help those who are physically challenged do some of the things they find difficult.  But she still doesn’t have a special person to live with.

Tasha has learned a lot from her teacher, Baker, a golden retriever. She can open doors, get the telephone, and carry things, as well as pick up things her person has dropped and help her person stand up.  When she meets Cecily, a girl who has difficulty walking due to Cerebral Palsy, it’s love at first sight.

Tasha and her friends love to help people, and now they want to teach others about special dogs like them. BunnyBud Books are designed to show kids how dogs can help people with disabilities.

By using the dogs’ perspectives, these stories come alive in a more personal manner than simple instruction.  The photos are of actual dogs in action, as they demonstrate how they can help people.  Fun to read, informative, and enjoyable, BunnyBud Books are a great resource in sharing the work of these wonderful dogs who do so much good for the people they live with.
