Colorado’s Sole Canine Author to Appear at Green Fest

Wheat Ridge Campaigner Brings Own Brand of Paw-litics to Denver

Denver, August 21, 2008 – Kids, their parents and animal lovers attending Denver’s Green Frontier Fest on August 24— the eve of the Democratic National Convention will have an opportunity to meet Cedar, the eco-savvy dog, (that’s right, a dog). Her one-of-a-kind book, Doggone Green: A Call to Action to Save Our Earth is for pets ‘n their people.

Cedar barks out Doggone Green Actions, straightforward and easy measure to reduce our carbon paw [and foot] print. She focuses on the need for safe, earth-friendly products for cats and dogs, as well as solutions for the mounds of dog poop produced every day by the 74 million American canines. Another of Cedar’s green tip-offs, “Litter-ly speaking, pets ‘n their people have to know clay-based kitty litters are an eco-nightmare both for the earth and our cats.”

The 10- year old Chesapeake Bay retriever “is proud to have been selected as the animal delegate in the Green Frontier Fest,” says her two-legged transcriber, Kathy Deitsch. As is characteristic of Cedar’s public appearances, she will be cloaked in her Doggone Green cape, a skillfully handcrafted wrap that promotes her book cover of animals, wind turbines and a green earth.

Doggone Green’s release date was Earth Day 2008. It premiered at the Colorado Pet Expo in early May and at the Colorado’s Earth Works Expo in June. Cedar participates in many events and book signings to support her causes of pet homelessness, cleaner storm water and healthier pet food.

The canine’s focus at Green Fest will be to sign up delegates and super delegates in each state. Cedar believes, “every pack can make a difference.” Their job is to learn, do and share simple doggone green actions with other pets ‘n their people in their hometowns; then join her as Doggone Green Crusaders.

The Green Frontier Fest will take place in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, 10 am to 6 pm on August 24, 2008. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit
