Whangaparaoa - The Plaza: 719 Whangaparaoa Road, 428 0845. specsavers.co.nz The adventures of Harriet the spaniel A dog's tale: Coatesville resident Karina Kayes has penned a book detailing the adventures of Harriet, right, and Hugo. By MICHELE ONG A little Coatesville dog has stories to tell. A portion of the proceeds from every book sold will help the SPCA. The idea for a book came about when I emailed a copy of Harriet and Hugo's Christmas photo taken at Animates last year to my brother living in the United Kingdom,'' Harriet's owner Karina Kayes says. Then Harriet took over and started writing to uncle Michael. That was how it all started.'' The book Hi Uncle Mike, It's Me Harriet centres around Harriet, a cavalier King Charles spaniel, and the adventures she gets up to with her brother Hugo, two cats Sophie and Lucy, five pet goats and her humans, Karina and husband Mike Kayes. All the stories are true stories. Because I work from home I get to see a lot of their antics. The book also has a lot of moral values in it. So it has things like it's okay to ask questions', and there's a story where Harriet had to apologise to Hugo because she had wrongly accused him of stealing her bone,'' Karina says. The book, which con- tains a lot of humour, is suitable for intermediate school-aged children. It will be officially launched at 3pm on Sunday at Animates, 2200 East Coast Rd, Silverdale. The SPCA will receive $2 from every copy of the book sold.
