The Houston SPCA is thrilled to host the inaugural book signing event featuring author Posey Parker and her canine friends Pickles and Hans as they promote their new e-book and iBook, “Pickles and the World Cup,” on Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the Adoptions Lobby of the Houston SPCA, 900 Portway Drive, Houston, TX 77024. Pickles, the dog and his canine companion Hans, will be signing “paw-tographs” for book lovers, animal friends and soccer fans.
The book details the true story of Pickles, a black and white collie who was renowned for his role in finding the stolen Jules Rimet Trophy (World Cup) in 1966. The trophy was stolen just four months before the 1996 FIFA World Cup in England. Pickles found the trophy wrapped in a newspaper at the bottom of a hill in southeast London while on a walk with his owner. He collected six-thousand pounds in reward money and the thief was never caught. The fantastic iBook version comes complete with a talking dog in the intro video, 3-D photos, dancing signing mascots and more.
“Pickles and the World Cup” is sure to be a chart-topping best-seller. Don’t miss this rare event to meet Pickles and Hans and get a keepsake “paw-tograph.” Ten percent of the proceeds from this e-book and iBook will go to benefit the Houston SPCA and animal shelters across the country.
