I’m proud to have shared my life with Sonny the Shih-Tzu for nine years. He was an incredible dog, who acted more like a person than a dog. He got bored of standard dog tricks and was very in tune to my feelings and thoughts. It was at the request of the pet resort’s training director that I learned about teaching Sonny to read. This was the only trick that he really loved performing. Over several years, I was able to teach him words, numbers, shapes, colors, and even physics equations.
Sonny and I showed off his reading ability at many training events and classes. Our biggest claim to fame, though was being on Good Morning Texas. Not only did Sonny perform his reading trick perfectly in the busy TV studio, but he also picked the 2011 Super Bowl Winner!!
Since Sonny passed away, I have developed the Sonny the Wonder Dog picture book series. The series explains why Sonny was so smart – he just had to be an alien from another planet. The first book in the series, Sonny from Outer Space introduces the readers to how Sonny came into Pamela’s life.
