Born Virginia Alice Richardson on August 11, 1935 in Cambridge, MA, she was raised in Arlington, MA until relocating to New Rochelle, NY where she graduated from High School. She earned a Bachelor†™s Degree from Buffalo State Teachers College in Art Education in June, 1957. She taught art classes in eight rural grade schools located between Buffalo, NY and Lockport, NY.

The stories were about her dog†™s life, as seen through the dog†™s eyes, and included a retired couple: Granny Smiles (Ginger) and Ed Elderly (Edward). Her stories included humorous events and graphics used to illustrate certain points, situations and life lessons.
