The poems are thoughtfully complemented by charming illustrations that enhance the overall reading experience. This book exhibits a wide emotional spectrum, ranging from playful poems celebrating joyful moments with our furry friends to more poignant pieces addressing the loss of our cherished companions. Seah’s remarkable talent lies in her ability to take seemingly simple language and structure and infuse it with genuine emotion, creating poems that resonate with authenticity.

The writing style is accessible and approachable for a broad readership, maintaining engagement without sacrificing the heartfelt emotion that tugs at our heartstrings. Poetry for Pups is a must-read for dog lovers, as it captures the essence of the human-canine relationship and celebrates the joy, laughter, and emotional depth that dogs bring to our lives.

About Susan Seah, author of Poetry for Pups

One of Susan Seah’s greatest joys is trying to be a tiger mommy to her adorable beagle pups, but often finding herself surrendering to their whims and fancies. From the moment she became a dog mom over two decades ago, her life has been filled with adventures, inspiration, and unconditional love from her fur babies. When she is not hanging out with her pups, Susan is a corporate and technology lawyer, and has been featured in various magazines and other news sources for her work to empower women, particularly as the CEO and Founder of The Koa Club.

About Morgan Boyle, illustrator for Poetry for Pups

Morgan Boyle has always enjoyed being around dogs and was lucky enough to find his sweet little beagle Koa, who is a joy in his life.  His background in art and photography allows him to share a glimpse into his fondness for his canine companions.   He has publicly displayed his photographic work at the Canon Gallery in Honolulu, Hawaii through the “Vision and Discovery”, an event sponsored by Pacific New Media.  He was also selected to display his photography three years in a row at “Contemporary Photography in Hawaii”, an annual surveyed exhibition of juried works.

About William Warrior, guest author

If you think dog-catching is only everything you ever saw watching Lady & The Tramp, then William and Pamela Warrior may challenge your assumptions.  William was a field officer with City of Palo Alto Police Department Animal Control Division from 1979 to 2020.  In a career spanning four decades and 80,000 calls for service, and with wise counsel from his veterinary-nurse wife Pamela, Bill & Pam together are participant in the grand tapestry of life in our fair San Francisco Bay Area community.  From this island paradise in our ecosystem, the animal kingdom’s highs and lows are sometimes heart-rending, sometimes joyous, and always an opportunity to witness an ongoing inter-species passion play from a place and from occupations like no other. Bill & Pam hope to share this wondrous view, offering a perspective on their work that has blessed them with the adventure of a lifetime.
