Time to Get Souped Up!

Dogs Don't Eat Soup is officially printed! You can still buy a copy here on this website, or in select stores! See a full list of retail locations here. 

The book

Dogs Don't Eat Soup is the story of a little bulldog named Frankie, who lives in a world where humans aren't willing to share their soup with pups. She is desperate to try some and gets a little creative in order to get real soupy!

The history

I wrote this story around 10 years ago about our dog, Frank, who would beg for a taste of everything we ate. For years, the story has collected cyber dust, deep in the bellows of my hard drive. Last year, I came across the work of the amazing Josie Ta, whose illustrations popped out at me and reminded me of this quirky little story. We teamed up to create the book, and the rest is the future... 

The Author

Hi! I'm Jolene Olive! I was born in Winnipeg and currently live in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba with my hubby and two daughters. I love writing, designing and getting creative in all kinds of ways! I also love getting outside, goofing around with my gal pals, and making up silly songs, by which my family members are constantly annoyed. This is my first book and I'm really excited/nervous to share it with all of you!

The books were printed locally in Altona, Manitoba by Friesens
