Dingle the dog, who is determined to help his handicapped owner, teaches kids the value of hard work, patience, and a helpful attitude in this book by Audrey Kinsella.

Dingle the Helpful Ice Cream Delivery Dog

Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog tells the story of Dingle, a friendly black Lab, and his wheelchair-bound, independent-minded owner. Inspired by her personal battle with rapidly progressive multiple sclerosis, author Audrey Kinsella admits that as the person who was once offering help, accepting assistance was quite a difficult and humbling experience -- but an invaluable one best learned early.
