Nicki Fleming is a natural with animals. She lives with her family on a ranch in Colorado, where she loves to ride her horse, downhill ski, and go shopping with her best friend, Becca.

Soon, Sprocket the pup arrives to be trained as a service dog and Nicki realizes that she may have bitten off more than she can chew!

Jackson the Horse

Nicki loves to go galloping across the mountain meadows on Jackson, her beautiful buckskin horse. His velour-covered coat is a light-chocolate-milk color, and his dark mane and tail can be stroked and styled. Position the two-tone blanket under his saddle, attach the bridle, and Nicki’s ready to ride! W: 5” x H: 16 1/2” x L: 23”

$65 GYAJ

Jackson’s Tack Box

Taking care of the horses is a daily chore for Nicki, but Jackson gets special treatment! Help Nicki open his tack box to find everything she’ll need to give him a good grooming: a berry-colored brush, ankle wraps to take care of injuries, and a bag of carrots so she can give him a treat when she’s done. At the end of the day, store the saddlebags and western-style saddle inside the tack box, too

Nicki’s Dog-in-Training

Sprocket the pup is black and white with caramel spots all over. No one is sure of his breed—perhaps a mix of Australian shepherd, border collie, and Bernese mountain dog—but one thing is certain: all he has to do is tilt his head and look at Nicki with his big brown eyes, and she’s in love. As part of his training, Nicki makes sure he always wears his service-dog vest when they go out and about, and she brings along his training log to record progress. Of course, she never leaves home without his scoop sacks and box of pretend treats for a job well-done.

Thanks to Nicki
Item# 92902 $6.95

Nicki Fleming's story continues, with a second book about the Girl of the Year 2007. Ten-year-old Nicki has had a busy summer on her Colorado ranch. When she wasn’t training Sprocket to become a service dog, she was helping her mother, who is expecting twins soon.
Yet Nicki is dreading the fall, when Sprocket will have to leave for more training and will eventually be placed with a person who has special needs. The beginning of the school year also means she’s stuck in the middle—caught between her two best friends, Kris and Becca, who can’t seem to get along. Can Nicki find a way to let Sprocket go and keep both of her good friends close?
The “True Story” section at the back of the book focuses on real girls who have experience training service dogs. Author: Ann Howard Creel. Paperback. 116 pages.
