Author / Speaker


WINSTON, A SCOTTISH TERRIER, is the Top Dog in Charge (TDIC) at his house. By sharing his own mishaps and challenges, he helps children deal with issues ranging from buzzy-bees in his belly to learning how to ‘apawlogize’ to others. His “peoples” Sugar and Babe, help him learn essential things like accepting differences, following rules, and dealing with anger. Winston ends his stories with a few words of wisdom and a new comment.

Children of all ages can share Winston’s adventures as he uses his ‘sniffer’ to discover what really matters. Sugar (Linda Apple) is an award-winning author of children’s picture books and inspirational non-fiction. Linda and Winston enjoy visiting schools and helping children learn what it really means to be the Top Dog in Charge of your life. Winston invites all his friends and their ‘peoples’ to check out his interactive website:
