Alicia Graybill, Sage’s “mom,” is a dog training librarian in southeast Nebraska. She has threatened for many years to write a book about dogs and dog training so is now following through. Sage is a 13 week old (as of November 12, 2011) Australian Shepherd female adopted from the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha. Alicia calls her a “WonderPup” because she wonders what she was thinking when she adopted her.
