Stop by the library to hear the amazing story about Smoky the War Dog. From a lucky chance discovery at he bottom of an abandoned fox hole in Papua New Guinea during WWII to becoming a famous entertainer, a decorated war hero and the world’s first official therapy dog of record, Smoky’s story is nothing short of amazing. Professional public speaker and skilled story teller Adrian Brigham, along with his wife, recording artist Denise Brigham and their 4 lb. Yorkie “Hairy Pawter,” will bring to life Smoky’s story and pay tribute to all heroes and veterans with four paws and wet noses.

This program is of interest for all ages and registration is not required.
