5 Dogs 3 Orphans by Jon Vreeland (art by Alycia Vreeland)
In a one story house on the brink of Huntington Beach and Westminster is a family of 10: (if you count the dogs and orphans—80% of the household—shedding hair like a pack of wild but amiable German Shepherds).
I spent Thanksgiving and Christmas in this one story orphanage slash animal shelter: Then—of course—was asked to take my squirt guns and leave.
(Sometimes it pays to be a K-9, or maybe kidnapped by
A Big White Stork
Then left on a doorstep for somebody else to love…)
