My friend Bill Cohn is the chef at the Union Oyster House, who keeps telling me about this dog named Catie Copley that welcomes guests that come to the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel. Bill keeps asking me, "Please go to the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel and meet this dog and take some pictures." Finally I did. I attend Catie's birth- day party at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel and had cake and treats and the. hu- man companions also ha! cake and coffee. What a woti- derful time. It was such a special day for Catie. As you can see from the photo I had a great time. ,Chef Bill Cohn gave my human companion, who also works at the Union Oyster House, a book called "Catie Copley's Great Escape" and we sat down together and read it. Let me tell you a little about the book "Catie Copley's Great Escape." Catie is a black Labrador retriever who lives an un- usual life as Canine Ambas- sador at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston. Her job includes welcoming guests, taking them for walks and helping Jim at his job as the hotel's Chief Concierge. Santol, who is a trained guide dog, just like Catie, is her canine counterpart at the Fairmont Le Chateau Fontenac in Quebec City, Canada. Catie, a very lady-like dog, was surprised when, one day, a large, furry, black and white intruder snatches her toy lobster and runs away with it. She is taken aback, but once she gets to know the rambunctious Santol they become good friends. When Jim drives Santol back to Canada, Catie is very excited to go too. This was Catie's first vacation and her first time in a strange city where they speak a different language. Santol introduces her to a famous goat, a friendly horse, a clumsy juggler, and intriguing new foods and smells. Catie finds that there is a lot of opportunity for ad- venture maybe a little too much adventure. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book in America is donated to NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans, based in Princeton, Massachu- setts. Since 1976, NEADS has trained more than 1,000 service dogs to assist deaf or physically disabled individu- Catie Cop, als. For further information, please visit A portion of the Canadian proceeds will be donated to MIRA, based near Montreal, Canada. The MIRA Founda- tion trains more than 150 guide dogs each year to help people with visual, auditory and physical dis- abilities. To learn more, visit maw. mira. ca. The book is wonderful and I believe children of all ages will enjoy it. Catie Copley's "Great Escape" written by Deborah Kovacs and Illus- trated by Jared T. Williams. I can't thank you enough Chef Cohn for thinking of me and the book was signed by Catie Copley which makes it more wonderful and especially to me "Freeway" That's all for now!
