Why is a Pup Named Muffin Suddenly Seeing Her Shadow Everywhere? Find Out in Muffin’s Shadow: A Muffin “Tail”

Muffin was enjoying the peace and quiet of her yard when Mom and Dad excitedly called out to her. “Muffin, let’s go for a ride!” The little family drove and drove for what seemed like years of Muffin’s doggie life. Where were they taking her?

When Dad pulled into the parking lot, Muffin became a little nervous, because this was somewhere new. The smells were not familiar: peanut butter, apple, stuffed doggie toys . . . but other funky smells too. The place was big, like a giant maze, and her eyes hadn’t adjusted to the bright lights.

Then suddenly, she saw it, for the very first time . . . her SHADOW!

It seemed to follow her everywhere. She kept moving, but the shadow haunted her. What was the shadow, and will Muffin get free of it? Read along with Muffin’s Shadow: A Muffin “Tail” to find out more. Just right for ages 5-8, the book is wonderful for classroom and humane education, too.

“Laura Eckroat wrote the perfect book to teach our children about the joy and love that comes from pet adoption. Muffin’s Shadow will take young readers on an enjoyable journey that is full of fun and wonder.”—Jamie Dougherty, Founder of Offleashapparel.com

Just because something’s always been done a certain way, doesn’t mean that’s how it should be done. One of the excuses often heard for dog chaining is “That’s how we’ve always done it.” Even if that statement is true, it doesn’t make it right. Dogs belong inside the home, with the family.
