PRLog - Feb. 26, 2013 - HIGH RIVER, Alberta -- Written in 2001 but put aside to make a movie about the restaurant biz that author Patricia A. White knows she was called to make, "Me 'n Jess (and an Irish Fisherman)" makes its debut at Pet Valu store in Okotoks.
"Anyone who has loved their own special dog, will enjoy this story about Jesse and her adventures."
"The book contains humorous stories and not stories of destruction and chaos." White says. "Even though Jesse was extremely independent and stubborn, she was a pretty well behaved dog, and became a dog whom other people talked about, which I thought was interesting."
But Jesse had her moments. "I had to train her not to bark outside--after she became a noisy dog in later years..." White says. Following is a short excerpt from the book:
"No barking, Jesse, and I'll give you a treat OK?" I told her as I let her out.
"But I might have to bark."
"No you don't. There is nothing out there and you know it."
"There was more to it than that but it worked. She was once again a quiet dog. That episode happened when she was about 9 years old. She decided that she needed to bark constantly, and it wasn't good for the neighbor situation." White remembers.
But this is more than a story about a dog. It includes the romantic story of how the book came to be which involves an Irish Fisherman and living in Ireland. Without this adventure that happened after a horse trek through Western Ireland, White believes that the book might not yet exist. She felt that she should include this story, so she intertwined it with the story about Jesse.
Because White wrote this book while living in Ireland, she used her birth father's name. Her adopted name is DiVita, which she lives by, and she has been involved in water conservation and awareness. Now she is using the book for this too and will include all formats. (She will be producing an audio book in the near future.) 10% of all revenue earned will be donated to water organizations that dig wells in 3rd world countries.
