Overview
This is a story about seeing the behaviors of a little dog from a different perspective. Ann has written this story about her own sassy Shiba Inu, Windry, who is as challenging as she is entertaining. Written from the point of view of her son, describing what his dog is doing compared to what he imagines she is thinking. Windry shows off all her skills as she imagines she is a sled dog, a mountain climber, a race car driver, a hunter, a gymnast, and more. Ann has illustrated this delightful picture book in two different mediums to enhance the contrast. These Illustrations were created in Prismacolor Pencils on Bee Paper Brown Recycled Sketch Paper and assorted brands of gouache on Arches Watercolour Paper. Through this 28-page, full color, hardcover picture book, Windry will charm you. Once you get to know her, you, too, will have to say "THAT DOG is something else!"

Books being created in THAT DOG series: THAT DOG Is Something Else! My Skillful Shiba Inu Who Does THAT DOG Think She is? My Talented Shiba Inu THAT DOG Sure Reminds Me of Something! My Remarkable Shiba Inu Is THAT DOG Really A Cat? My Cat-like Shiba Inu I'm Going To Miss THAT DOG! My Aging Shiba Inu Ann was first drawn to the Shiba Inu because of its fox-like beauty. But after learning about their traits and meeting a neighborhood Shiba Inu, she knew they had to have one of their own. The Shiba Inu, a Japanese breed, is known for its high intelligence, alertness, playfulness and cat-like behaviors. Shiba Inus are extremely strong willed and have high prey drives. They are dainty, yet bold, and are so entertaining to watch, but be aware - they are equally challenging.
About the author
Ann G (Tarchinski) Rusky likes to illustrate things that are close to her heart. This recent picture book, "THAT DOG Is Something Else!" is her homage to the beauty of the breed and the love for their family pet. Ann has adored Windry, their Shiba Inu, for her skills and giant personality. Ann wanted to document Windry's challenging behaviors in a personal keepsake for her son, but this story will entertain us all. Ann says, "She is so beautiful to look at because of her color, silhouette, proportions and grace; from every angle she is a work of art." Ann has previously illustrated the picture book "Mac's Mackinac Island Adventure" (a story about a little horse that goes to Ann's favorite place Mackinac Island, not to work, but to have a vacation. Written by Mary Beth Vachon) She also illustrated "Picture It - Addy's Big Day". (A sweet day-in-the-life story written by Speech-Language Pathologist, Stacy Pulley, as a way to build the pre-reading skills of using 'pictures' to build comprehension.) Ann has a BFA in Illustration from Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. She currently lives with her husband, son, and feisty Shiba Inu in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
