"An engaging tale about canine skill sets and service dogs' training, with moments of comedy. " ---- Kirkus Reviews


The book's gentle text and beautiful watercolors tell a tale of the wonders of imagination.


Kirby, the puppy, must patiently wait for his daily walk. He stretches, rolls, squiggles, and squirms as he imagines many antics and adventures. Kirby imagines writing a book, driving a race car, surfing, and even becoming a king. But can he continue to wait patiently?


The reader learns throughout the book about Kirby's partner Casey and her work, hobbies, and sports before learning of her disability. The last illustration of the much-awaited walk reminds us that a person with a disability can maintain an active lifestyle with her service puppy. The afterword on the final page describes how to greet a service dog and his partner.
