The Story of a Bump on a Golden Retriever's Nose

The Bump on Lucy's Nose
By R. Thomas Berner
Published by Marquette Books
Children's fiction

Written and illustrated by retired Penn State journalism professor R Thomas Berner, The Bump on Lucy's Nose tells what happens when 10-year-old Sarah discovers a bump on her 10-year-old golden retriever's nose. Rescued at 2, Lucy had become Sarah's faithful companion and the bond between them helps save Lucy's life.

This realistic and informative story will help children understand the importance of paying close attention to their pets and the crucial role that veterinarians play in the lives of pets.

The Lucy who inspired this story was rescued by the Berners in Pennsylvania and retired to Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 2003. She enjoys walking on the trails near her home and resting in the shade of pinon trees.
