Readers will follow the Osornio’s and their dog in a touching tale through Xlibris.

Readers will be touched as author Vanessa Osornio introduces the dog that brought joy to their family. An Xlibris release, Purty tells a touching story of a furry friend’s gift of love and happiness to the Osornio family.

This is a true story of a dog who captured the author’s heart. Throughout the story, Purty gives the family ups and downs, but her presence was always enough to put a smile on everybody’s face. To the Osornio’s, having a dog made them feel younger, enjoying the exuberance and mischief of their pet. Purty also taught the children how to become responsible pet owners.

From being an adorable puppy, a fully-grown family dog, and a mother with six pups, Purty became a part of the Osornio’s daily life. Reminiscent of Marley & Me, a movie directed by David Frankel starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, Purty shows how a dog can become an indispensable part of a family.
