Lauren Douglas has had dogs all her life with her family currently having 9! Having grown up in a true melting pot, Lauren felt her book about Chippy's adventures paralleled her life. By telling Chippy's story she hopes to spread the message about the importance of adapting to change, whether it be a new home or new friends. In her free time, Lauren loves to read, work on arts & crafts, and pester her two younger brothers. More than anything, Lauren loves to play and cuddle with all her dogs!
