A toy poodle named Blanchette tells the tale of the nine cats and kittens that make their way into her family’s household in Bobbi Dick’s new children’s book, “1+9: The Story of Blanchette ‘the little white one’” (published by Archway Publishing). The book is available for purchase at:

Blanchette is a white toy poodle who lives happily with her human family — her mom, Bobbi; her dad, Mel; and their two daughters, Melanie and Lana. At first, Blanchette is the only animal member of the family. Then everything begins to change. Based on the true story, everything in the book revolves around the 10 pets that Dick and her family adopted and fell in love with over the course of almost 20 years.

“People love their pets and all animals deserve to be loved,” Dick says. “This book’s lesson about adopting and loving your pets has a timeless quality that is forever relevant. This story also shows the important fact that animals and our pets do learn to get along with each other and their family.”
