They Call Me Jake, a new book by David W. Krieger, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

After going through some life-changing circumstances and witnessing how the color or one's skin (or fur) can affect how he or she is treated, David W. Krieger felt that telling this story through the eyes of his rescue dog was a perfect way to address the obvious racist ways people today still perceive others and act towards them. This story is intended to indirectly address issues of racism, unfair treatment, and bullying in our society today.
