Meet Starr, the Goofy Newfie. She’s ready to educate and entertain children with stories about her life as a dog trained to bring comfort, encouragement, and smiles to people who could use a special friend. Starr is a Newfoundland dog and stands out from the pack – literally. She wows people with her size, weighing in at – bow-WOW! – 175 pounds and measuring 75 inches from the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail. Some people say Starr looks like a black bear. Anyone who meets her knows Starr is a lovable, laid back teddy bear – a big bundle of slobbery sweetness – who may be just a little misunderstood because of her size. Starr wants nothing more than to make people happy and give them confidence, especially children.

In Starr’s debut book, The Starr Student: Happy Tails from the Goofy Newfie, Starr goes to school to learn how to be a therapy dog so she can bring people joy, hope and even the will to face tough challenges one tail wag at a time. But Starr soon learns that school is not all fun and games…because no matter who you are or what size you are, life can be…well...ruff.
