Poochie’S Changing Daze

Front Cover

Beverly has been called Poochie by her family that her father occasionally forgets her real name. She grew up in Nairn Centre, Ontario, a small community where everyone knew almost everything going on in everyone elses household. Even so, she still managed to have secrets. In this memoir, she tells the story of her youth, from her childhood through her teenage years.

She shares her wealth of exciting and embarrassing moments from her life as a child, trying to learn how to be herself in a constantly changing world. She was a child obsessively dependent on her mother, to the point of having suicidal thoughts when she believes she has lost her mothers respect.

With an open and honest mind, Poochie shares each childhood turmoil as it gets conquered and turned into a stepping stone for the next adventure in Poochies Changing Dazea story of the love and strength that a family gets from having each other.
