About the Author
Hi, my name is Phoebe Cakes. I'm a tiny special needs bulldog living the good life in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have a serious love for peanut butter and car rides. My early life wasn't so easy, but that all changed when I met my foster mom, Clare, at the New Orleans Bulldog Rescue. She helped me get back on my feet and on my way to finding my furever home. I took my time. I sniffed, I snorted and turned up my wet nose. I'd almost given up until the day I met Michelle. She was the twenty-first person to apply for my adoption. I now call her mom, but she calls herself LUCKY #21.
