About the Authors of Real Dogs Don’t Whisper…Life lessons from a larger than life dog! (and his owner)
Kelly Preston is, first and foremost, an animal lover. Raised on a ten-acre property in a small town in Pennsylvania, she grew up with horses, rabbits, and – of course – dogs. When she left home after college, she acquired Gizmo, an irresistible Lhaso Apso that started her on a journey full of joys and sorrows, hopes and tribulations, frustrations, endless lessons in patience, and – above all else – love. All of this has come at the hands (more precisely paws) of Gizmo, Betty Boop, Buffy, Carla Mae, and the inimitable Mr. MaGoo.
Mr. MaGoo is a nine-year-old Lhasa Apso and the book’s co-creator and co-writer. He is, in his own words, ” the alpha and omega of all dogs-in the cutest and sparkiest, most fun-loving package ever.” Ignoring Kelly’s persistent eye-rolling, Mr. MaGoo has forged ahead with this project in an attempt to, as he puts it, “present the facts from a dog’s perspective. In other words, the correct, most accurate, most interesting, only-one-that-matters perspective.” To which he adds, simply, “Woof!”
