Gabby Girl By The Sea is about the love between a fur baby and her mom, community, friendship, and trying new things. It conveys the message that it's okay to be scared. Gabby Girl By The Sea is written in honor of my dog, Gabby, who passed away, and our fun days together at our favorite local spots in our community. We hope our story encourages you to get out there and make a difference in your community with your loved ones and to have fun adventures with your pets! Our characters, and the places we go in our story, are real places and real people in the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach communities. The only fiction is we changed Jimmy's to a produce place. Our special puppy friends Kruizer and Kash are real, too! We would love to hear about the fun things you do for your own community. Send me and my pup Cece an email at PawsitivePawsByTheSea@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for helping make my dream come true and we hope you enjoy our book. Love and paws, Meaghan Thomas.
