  1. Will Patrick be adding more dates in 2020 to promote the new book, I was going to see him tonight but the weather is not great.
    Thank you.

  2. I would love to see you in the Greater Boston Area! I am in New Hampshire, but I would travel to other parts of New England to see you.

  3. THANK YOU FOR MUTTS, PATRICK! I’d love to see you visit us in Texas; perhaps Fort Worth, a wonderful city and my first choice to see you! If not in Fort Worth, maybe Austin? I live North of Austin and south of Fort Worth (in Georgetown, Tx.).

    I am a volunteer at our animal shelter. Your “Shelter Stories” are inspiring!



  4. When are you coming to Seattle? : )

  5. Patrick, you will never know the impact your daily Mutts has on our lives. The inclusion of a thought provoking quote is an added bonus. You are a genius and a true humanitarian. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Boswell Books in Milwaukee, WI would be a fantastic venue to listen to you speak. ( that is a MAJOR hint!). Thank you Patrick for bringing a smile to my heart every single day. A Wisconsin Fan!
