Book Reading (With Dexter), Thursday, March 7, Kindergarten/First-Grade Classes, Stillmeadow Elementary School, Stamford, CT
Sparky / Dexter
Greetings from Sparky and Dexter
UNFORTUNATELY, SPARKY PASSED AWAY SEPT. 9, 2011. SHE WAS 13 YEARS OLD. SHE IS MISSED BY EVERYONE, BUT SHE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.
WE NOW HAVE ANOTHER DOG, DEXTER, WHO WAS ADOPTED FROM ADOPT-A-DOG JUST LIKE SPARKY! AND JUST LIKE SPARKY, DEXTER HAS HIS OWN BOOKS, TOO!
Welcome, young and old alike, to the “Sparky/Dexter’s Adventures” Web site, dedicated to the delightful Sparky and Dexter stories, as well as the stars of the books, Sparky and Dexter!!
Many children, as well as adults, from coast to coast have found the Sparky/Dexter Adventures to be charming stories, but Sparky herself was a great story. Rescued in the nick of time from a terrible fate (see Sparky’s Story section), Sparky went from Death Row to Canine Celebrity through her starring role in the Sparky stories, as well as countless book readings at schools throughout the United States (see Author Visits section). Dexter is also a rescue dog, going from homeless in a dog pound in West Virginia to a great life in Connecticut.
But Sparky, as well as Dexter, have not forgotten about their pals back at the animal rescue agencies. Sparky and Dexter help out Adopt-A-Dog (the group that rescued both of them) by donating $1 from the sale of each book to the organization, as well as to many other animal agencies throughout the country (see tally to the right). And in addition to all the donations, Sparky and now Dexter, too, have made many wonderful friends along the way.
C’mon, let’s explore!!
