Murphy is an Australian Shepherd. He has been trained to be a care dog. Murphy visits hospitals, schools, and aged care facilities. He is trained to let people pat him and for him to not jump or get scared. This is a story about Murphy, what he likes, and some of his adventures. Murphy looks like a big woolly toy and seems to be smiling continually. Who doesn't like a cute dog like Murphy?

This story offers many opportunities for further discussion. The perspective of caring for people who are sick, disabled, and unwell in general. How a well-trained dog can make a difference in a person's day. Why do care dogs make a difference and how do help people?

Dogs are wonderful pets but also are very important in many roles. Secondly, there is the science perspective related to dog care and what processes we must understand when feeding and caring for dogs and managing their behaviour.

A beautifully presented and valuable literacy resource that could be included in many science lessons, humanities and in a pet-care theme project for primary or secondary classes. And most importantly, it is suitable for literacy classes to encourage, inspire, learn, and motivate students to continue reading.

Suitable for primary and lower secondary ages.
