About the book
Becca has to tell her newly rescued puppy Sister some hard truths about the way people view her breed. But her friends save the day by showing love to them both in a very special way!
This beautiful story starring a rescued pit bull-type dog and the girl that saved her brings wonderful lessons and blessings to families and classrooms. “The Pittie Pool Party” encourages the gift of sharing emotions with friends and family, laying a healthy groundwork for communication and accepting vulnerability. It also establishes an understanding of how judging any person or creature before knowing them as an individual can cause harm to them and us. This book embodies the incredible power of friendship, inclusivity, acceptance and rescuing animals.
About the author
Randi Moxi grew up in an animal shelter in West Virginia that was run by her grandmother, Sally. She’s seen firsthand how out of control the pet population is in America and asks that you please rescue and spay and neuter your pets. She hopes you treat all animals as the individuals they are and learn their preferences together through communication and proper, positive and loving training methods.
She was exposed to all dog breeds throughout her childhood, but did not fully understand the plight of the most bullied breed in the world, pit bull-type breeds, until moving to Chicago. Pit bulls are superior in intelligence, strength and loyalty. When taught to do wrong things, they are efficient in accomplishing what they are asked or made to do to survive. Animals teach us so much and we must help save and guide them to better lives than this. Teaching important lessons through pit bulls to children is her way to give back to the breed that has changed her life in more positive ways than she could ever describe.
Randi lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her loving husband and 5 amazing pitbull mix fur children. She is a certified dog trainer, animal communicator, life coach, event producer, brand strategist and motivational speaker.
