Bertha McCain has seven dogs. Each dog has a different task, one for each day of the week.
The neighbors complain there are too many dogs, but Bertha knows each one is special. Is there room for more? Of course!
From The Critics: Children's Literature
"...geared for fluent readers, includes three-syllable words....crisp, playful language...." Candice Ransom
When Lynea wrote the dedication for A Dog for Each Day, she wanted to include not only her own dogs, but all those of her family and friends. Since there wasn’t enough room on the dedication page, here they are now.
For all the dogs I've known and loved:
Zephyr, Cody, Bear, Princess, Chipper, Taffy, Pepper, Muffy, York, Woof, Sam, Einstein, Tigger, Daisy, Inky, Lady #2, Pandy, Toby, Gigio, Houston, Juliet, Queenie, Lady #1, Kelly, Tuffy, Cassie, Lobo, Bitsy, Shadow, Maz, Tevye, Violet, Lucy, Baron, Holly, and Poppy.
Princess, Chipper, and Bear
- the best dogs ever!

Princess, howling like a beagle,for the sheer joy of saying "welcome home."
Taffy, in Brooklyn, New York.
Pepper: Silky fur, graceful, and gentle.
Tigger lives with Daisy. They're both cocker spaniels. Daisy's picture is on this page, also. Can you find her?
Max lives in North Carolina. He loves to sleep, and cuddle.
Daisy likes playing with her toys -- and sometimes with Tigger's.
