“Tia Talks – My Life in a Multi-breed Family” is the 67-page premier volume in the “My Dogs Talk” series. It began as a monthly column published in the national newsletter of the English Setter Association of America. The stories in this book are written in Tia’s voice, from her perspective.
The background for Tia’s life is GREYSETT, her home in Ocala, Florida (after moving as a puppy from Canada). Tia shares her home with other dogs (and other breeds), along with birds and a horse.
A true and unique gift from this book is that the reader can scan a QR code to watch a video of the author talking about the origin of GREYSETT, Tia Talks, and her books series “My Dogs Talk.”
Tia talks about being a French English Setter, about the other dogs in the household, a thirty-year-old coffee table that she helped to “distress”, and more. She gains a nickname – Tia Knock It Off.
Tia’s worldview is very funny. And she does not hesitate to mouth off. She shares escapades about the sunroof in the car being unintentionally opened in the rain,
As all pet owners know, each pet has a certain personality, a certain way of thinking about things, and a certain way of acting. As with humans, our pets slow down as they age. Lesley Osborn has given voice to Tia, speaking as Tia would have spoken if she could. “Tia Talks” brims with energy and personality and is a read that I certainly recommend for children and adults of all ages. It is a lovely time-out in what is becoming a very hectic world.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series, “Sophie Talks”, available in early 2023 (that’s right – this year!).
