Dean Koontz who is a well-known bestselling author isn’t the only writer in the family, meet Trixie, his beloved golden retriever.
The great thing about Trixie’s books are all the proceeds go to Canine Companions for Independence, they provide highly-trained assistance dogs for children and adults with disabilities, free of charge.
Trixie and Dean Koontz are proud to announce a special line of products based on “Bliss to You, Trixie’s Guide to a Happy Life.” The items are going to be available at PetSmart now through August and all the proceeds will once again go to Canine Companions for Independence.
NEWPORT BEACH, CA–(Marketwire – June 30, 2009) – Trixie, bestselling author Dean Koontz’s beloved golden retriever, was more than a dog — she was an inspiration. And like all good inspirations, they are best when shared. To celebrate Trixie’s life, legacy and magic, a new line of pet products has been created to inspire all that is loved by pets and their owners while doing good for service dogs. The line Good Dog: Trixie KoontzTM will launch July 1, 2009 in PetSmart stores.
Dean commented, “Trixie was not only a wonderful dog and an endlessly amusing companion. She was also an inspiration who changed my life. I delight in watching her little empire grow, knowing that every dime she earns is going to pay the catastrophic veterinary bills of the canine companions of people with severe disabilities and to provide assistance dogs for those who need them. My little dog is throwing a long shadow.”
Available items celebrate Trixie’s wit and wisdom and include:
* Butterfly toys, plush bones, disks and rope tugs to play with dogs.
* “Bliss You” and “Laugh ’til Your Face Hurts” tanks for a carefree style.
* Stationery and specialty gifts such as coffee mugs, photo frames, key chains, journals and pens.
A big kudos to Dean and Trixie Koontz for their generosity, thanks to them CCI will be able to provide even more service dogs to help those with disabilities.
