“The Puppy Who Could Not Bark”: a fun and uplifting family narrative. “The Puppy Who Could Not Bark” is the creation of published author Shana Burchard, who lives on a little dirt road in Northwestern Pennsylvania with her dog, Lola. She enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband, taking walks outside, reading books, and laughing with friends. As a young girl, she always wanted to be a writer and would write stories in her free time. She attended Allegheny College as an English and psychology double major. She then went on to earn her master’s degree in education (pedagogy and practice) from Mercyhurst University.

Burchard shares, “Once upon a time, there was an old dusty road. It had little pebbles that jumped like frogs when cars drove over it, but usually no cars traveled on it, which was sad news to a little brown puppy in a shelter at the end of the road.

“This touching story shows the power of prayer as the little brown puppy waits expectantly for God to send him a family. Through a series of unexpected events, the puppy finds himself at a loving couple’s home. Yet, will he face the risk of being taken away once they discover he cannot bark? This story teaches children how God works all things together for the good of those who love Him. It perfectly illustrates how God knows us and gives us a purpose when we feel inadequate. This tale is perfect for reading aloud and discussing the importance of prayer to children, as well as reading independently and enjoying the rich, vibrant illustrations. Join the little brown puppy on his adventure to a forever home!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Shana Burchard’s new book is a delightful reading experience that will have readers racing to see if the little puppy will end up in the home of his dreams or be sent away to the circus.

Burchard pairs delightful illustrations crafted by Jess Bircham with a fun narrative that is certain to delight and entertain.
