Milo is a mixed breed, medium-sized dog. He was born in Alabama but moved to the Atlanta Humane Society’s Mansell Road location, where he was adopted by Chris Jespersen, Anita Nucci, and Andy Jespersen in December 2012. Part Dalmatian, part Chow, but mostly resembling a Border Collie, Milo is all black and has a long, fluffy tail. He loves going for walks, chasing squirrels, herding the occasional deer, swimming in the Chattahoochee River or in a backyard pool, riding in the car with the window open, and he really loves a good squeaky toy. Milo lives with four cats: Cleo, Dewey, Eve, and Rocky.

Explore Georgia’s curiosities and wonders with this story in verse that will help even the most reluctant reader learn their ABC’s. Georgia ABC’s is the perfect book to read with your pooch, your children, and even your cat.
