This is a picture book based on true events. It is about the life of Vera a dog that lived with the US Coast Guard for most of her life after being found as a stray. The story is a bit wordy so not really something that one can read in one sitting with children and would be better to take in small sections although it could be read in go depending on the child. It is a worth while read and it is a very nice story especially the addition of how the writer looked for Vera's resting place many years after she passed. The story is illustrated well and it was a piece of history as a dog lover I liked learning about. Worth the time to read and I was happy coming across it in the library.
