DON'T YOU DARE, CLAIRE!

By Berger, June Fountain

Self Published, 1981. Text/Near New. Illustrated soft cover/NF w/light wear & faint creasings to back. Author signed (front cover verso) & editorial note (also by author) to illustration of husband (Bart Berger, Claire photographer & dog-run builder) on pg 31. An engaging "only in Berkeley" chronicle of summer dog-sitting for Claire, a young Irish setter (yet to be obedience trained), and Frisky (Claire's friend, the Rabbit). A rich. humorous three-month family experience (or, "sharing") --- including motorized outings (w/maps of the Bay Area). Author (not an avid dog lover who enjoys a well trained retriever named Pandy and her fish pond) dedicates the journal to teenage daughter Joan (author of Claire poems). Book illustrated by son Ralph (mostly away on holidays). Son Tom (vacationing owner of Claire and Frisky) appears on the drop-off and pick-up of Claire. To Tom, Claire can report hilights of nudging the author into the fish pond (not good) and winning the Canine Beauty Contest Blue Ribbon at the local Dog Olympics (good) ... if not, the family refers Tom to the book.. Signed by Author. First Thus. Paperback. Near Fine/None As Issued. Illus. by Ralph Berger (Illustrator).
