Pogu the Pug

concept and story by Q&K

We have a new children's book written as a passion project by two MIT students.  It a book of love and
hope - and highlights the value of rescue.
From the authors, 

"Follow Pogu the pug as he embarks on a journey to find love and acceptance. Pogu the Pug offers children a beautiful story about unconditional love and compassion for animals. Profits will benefit Tiny Paws Pug Rescue, a California based 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and find forever homes for pugs and pug-mixes. A portion of proceeds will be used to create more stories."

All proceeds benefit our rescue pugs. You can order one today through Amazon Smile
