Julie Strauss Bettinger's latest update for Encounters with Rikki

May 13, 2016

Rikki’s Coming to 30A!

Well, all the humans are heading to "the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches," so therapy dog Rikki is planning to join them.

Rikki has been invited to "pawtograph" copies of her book, Encounters with Rikki, (along with her much-less-important author) at the Blue Giraffe in WaterColor and Sundog Books in downtown Seaside. Both along the route of that gorgeous historic 30A.

So if you’re in the neighborhood on these dates, come say hello to Rikki:

  • Wednesday, June 8, 2016, 10:30 am – 1:00 pm at The Blue Giraffe gift shop at WaterColor Beach. 1777 E. County Hwy 30A, WaterColor Town Center, WaterColor, FL 32459. Phone: 850-231-5112
  • Thursday, June 9, 2016, 10:00 am – Noon at Sundog Books, Downtown Seaside, Florida. Address:  89 Central Square, Scenic Highway 30-A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459. Phone:  850-231-5481.
Both locations have books already in stock, so you can also slip by and grab one to enjoy on your vacation.

In other news, Rikki’s folks, Chuck and Patty Mitchell, are in Prague at the moment attending the Assistance Dogs International conference. They’re on the lookout for "pawsitive" partnerships between therapy animals and service dogs. Of course, they have copies of Encounters with Rikki with them to help tell their story and possibly introduce Courthouse Therapy Dogs to the legal community in Europe. 

Who knows, maybe we’ll see Rikki’s story published in other languages!

Enjoy your summer.
