Meet Library visitors Sky and Abby of the Kirkpatrick family. Both are longtime Willow Glen residents and enjoy walking in the downtown Willow Glen area. The athletic Sky runs about forty miles a week with his human. He and Abby both enjoy River Glen Park, and their favorite restaurant is Bill's. Both dogs are Australian shepherds; the larger Sky is a blue merle, and the petite Abby is a red merle. Despite the name, the Australian shepherd is an American breed. If you are interested in this intelligent and very active dog, you can request books about the breed from the San Jose Public Library.
We welcome our youngest readers to our upcoming Reading to Furry Friends event, where children learning to read will have the opportunity to read to dogs, an easy and non-critical audience.
