Buddy the Dog is a children’s book written by Watford City native, Gretchen Stenehjem. She decided to write a story for her grandchildren about Buddy, the family’s golden retriever who was blind in one eye.? However, as soon as friends and family members saw the book, she was encouraged to make it available to everyone and decided to donate the proceeds to the Anne Carlsen Center.
Odney assisted Gretchen with a website, social media, public relations and graphic projects. Because of these efforts she has appeared on numerous television morning shows, been asked to read in schools and bookstores and made several signing appearances.
