WWI Veteran was Founder of National Dog Week

My latest book, Dog's Best Friend: Will Judy, Founder of National Dog Week and Dog World Publisher was released in time for the 86th Observance of National Dog Week (McFarland & Co.). Judy was a minister, teacher, lawyer and decorated WWI veteran before purchasing Dog World Magazine where he served as its publisher for four decades. In 1928, he launched National Dog Week to honor all the ways dogs served humans. He praised their value in the military and in law-enforcement long before they were officially included in our armed forces.

He also served as an American Legion Post Commander in Chicago.

This book contains some terrific American and Canine history and even the most avid dog-enthusiasts will learn something new!
