Our very own Dixie Eng, General Manager of our Springfield pet resort, is delighted to have been one of several folks to endorse the recently published book by respected etiquette expert and author of nine books, Mary M. Mitchell.
The book Dixie has recently endorsed, entitled Woofs to the Wise: Learning to Lick at Life and Chew on Civility, begins when Nessa, a woman from Philadelphia, visits her best friend, Mary, in Seattle. The two women hit it off, but are very different in their personalities. Mary’s patience and humor are tested, and she confides in her six-year old French Bulldog, ZsaZsa Pooch, to speak for her.
“I’ve known Mary for years,” shares Dixie. “In addition to being a cherished, longtime friend, Mary is the authority on civility and all things etiquette. She was the protégé of the late American etiquette expert Letitia Baldrige who was best known for serving as Jacqueline Kennedy’s Social Secretary in the 1960s.
In fact, Mary’s book Woofs to the Wise was the last book Ms. Baldrige personally endorsed shortly before her passing this year.”
