"How my dog inspired me"
Meet the Author Terri Lynn
and Abbygail - our brightest STAR
As a young child, did you ever wonder what it would be like if your
stuffed animal toys actually “came to life” and took you on fun adventures?
I did. My name is Terri Lynn Link. Here's my story...
I have always been creative...pulling an idea out of the clear blue sky is fascinating to me
and making it a reality is exciting, it’s contagious, like watching “a dream come true”.
In the Summer of 2007 my husband AL and I were entertaining friends in our backyard in Boring, OR,
watching our littlest kids jump into the pool and race to the other end, dunking each other underwater along the way.
Relaxing? No, not really, too noisy...But very entertaining!
We all found ourselves drawn into their simple little game. Laughter and smiles decorated all of our faces.
Mesmerized by how cute and simple their antics were and suddenly our minds cleared of any stress or worry of the day.
I started to wonder what they were thinking (if they could talk) as I watched each of them scamper out of the pool, through the tall grass
playing “Follow the Leader” and into the pond, disappearing over the bank by the corner of the barn. This is the day it all started.
Besides a creator, I like to help others, I’m a rescuer. I like to fix things.
I like everyone to be happy, to feel important and loved and especially when it comes to kids and the elderly.
Fast forward to the current day, almost 8 years later...2015

The story is about a lonely little dog’s wish... that her stuffed animals would “come to life”.
Abbygail and her friends act as “role models” for children as they embark on fun filled adventures reminding kids about safety, manners and being a good friend. The stories are heartwarming and they mesmerize children with an old fashioned sense of gratitude. Very non Hollywood, more real world genuine....simple yet children find the stories fascinating.
