Book Giveaway Tour: Buckets Goes on a Winter Adventure

The Children’s Book Review

A small dog on a leash, Buckets the French Bulldog


Have you met Buckets, a French Bulldog Instagram star?

Buckets is a blue pied French Bulldog, born and raised in San Diego, California. He has a big personality, and he is much more concerned with what humans are doing than what other dogs are doing. At the park, you can find him huddled around the humans, waiting for belly rubs and sniffing for treats. He was born without sections of his vertebrae and therefore has inflammatory bowel disease and scoliosis, but that doesn’t slow him down. He enjoys naps, cuddling, eating cucumbers, playing frisbee, and chasing his racquetball around the house. He is a registered Emotional Support Animal (ESA) and offers love to everyone who crosses his path.

Starring in a book of his own, Buckets Goes on a Winter Adventure is a story of friendship and determination, and will encourage readers of all ages to explore the mysteries of the world around them.
