About The Authors
WENDY DAVIDCHUK has a BEd and an ECE diploma from the University of Calgary. MARILYN GROVUM has a BA from the University of Saskatchewan and BEd from the University of Calgary. These two teachers met and became good friends in the 1970s while teaching at Chinook Park Elementary School. Both taught in several elementary schools in Calgary, where they still live. They thoroughly enjoyed reading stories aloud to the children in their classes.
Both dog lovers, Wendy and Marilyn got their dogs a few months apart from the same breeder. Marilyn does not drive, so for the next fourteen years, Wendy and Taffy picked up Marilyn and Troy and they went to all the dogs' appointments together. Taffy and Troy were always excited to see one another.
Wendy and Marilyn have so many endearing memories of their dogs, they decided to write some rhyming books to share with children. Many hours have been spent at Marilyn's kitchen table creating these tales. Watch for the third book in the Taffy and Troy series, coming soon!
