Fairhope, Alabama (November 20, 2013) - In a charming new children s book entitled Fletcher, local dog enthusiast and specialized breeder, Sherri Smeraglia shares the heart-warming story of her own puppy, Fletcher, the first English Teddy Bear Goldendoodle and how he came to be. In her first book, the author also celebrates the lifelong, loving relationship between children and their dogs. Fletcher was released on November 14, 2013, just in time for the holiday season.
As part of the City of Fairhope s Annual Holiday Open House event, Smeraglia and her dog, Fletcher, will be on hand to sign copies of this very special book. The event will take place at Page & Palette Bookstore on Sunday, November 24 from 1-5 p.m.

Smeraglia and Fletcher recently participated in two popular local events: the 29th Annual Christmas Jubilee - presented by the Junior League of Mobile and Page & Palette s Duck Dynasty event.
English Teddy Bear Goldendoodles combine the best traits of both breeds. They re intelligent, highly trainable, and ideal for owners with allergies. Smeraglia continues, These dogs are literally changing the world. I receive stories daily from clients about how our Goldendoodles have saved their lives. I felt a calling to write Fletcher to share with the world how this amazing, lovable breed came to be.
A portion of the proceeds from the book sales are earmarked by Smeraglia for Honduras Mission Outreach.
