I loved seeing my students excited reactions when they learned Fred was based on a real dog. Here's to the greatest dog I have ever known. May you continue to live in the hearts of the readers...

I have been dreading writing this post because a part of me feels like it’s not real. I'm saddened to share that we laid Fred to rest on December 26th. He had a beautiful life and was greatly loved by all. Fred brought light into my life during my darkest days and I am forever grateful for him. He was the greatest dog I have ever known and was a huge staple in my family. I find comfort thinking of him snuggled up with Eddie right now. I’m happy that his lovable character will continue to live on in our children’s books. Fred will be forever missed.

Every month we try to find ways to pay it forward, spread kindness, and honor Eddie. November is a significant month for us because it’s the anniversary of Eddie’s passing as well as Veteran’s Day.
This week we had the privilege of partnering with Operation Shower and donated 25 Eddie and Fred books to expecting military moms in Kansas City. Thanks to the Chiefs Women's Organization, GEHA, Operation Shower and the Kansas City Chiefs for hosting this incredible event. It is a joy to spoil our military moms and shower them with baby essentials.
