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.
