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 a child 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!"

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.
