K9 Lola to conduct “pawtograph” session with her new book Thursday


Critical Incident Response Team K9 Lola of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office will sign “pawtographs” for her new children’s book at a story time event on May 23.  

Sheriff Will Akin will read “Pawsitively Lola (A Service Dog’s Adventures)” by local author Mike Dickerson at a story time event at 10:30 a.m. May 23 at Busy Bean Play Café, 249 W. Mill St., Liberty, Mo. K9 Lola, her handler Kim Hunter and author Dickerson will be there to meet and greet attendees. Lola will have some of her CIRT K9 friends there, too! 

“Pawsitively Lola” became available from Friesen Press just before Christmas. It’s the third in a series about service dogs in the Kansas City area. It’s available on Amazon and all other platforms as a soft cover, hard cover or e-book. The other titles include “Pawsitively Dax” and “Pawsitively Rasta.” 

Dickerson, of Lathrop, Mo., tells the story of how K9 Lola went from rescue dog to a rescuer who helps people when they are in crisis, in partnership with her handler. The book features pictures of a day in the life of K9 Lola. 

Dickerson is donating all proceeds from the book’s sales to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office HALO (Helping All Live Optimally) Team. The HALO Team is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that assists Sheriff’s Office employees experiencing financial crisis.  

He has donated to a number of Kansas City-area charities in partnership with the organization, KC Hopegivers, an aggregate not-for-profit.
