This award-winning and beautifully illustrated story is told from the point of view of Jag, the real-life Canine Special Assistant to the Governor of Montana.

Written for children ages 6 to 12, First Dog is Jag's story of how a cow dog from a farm in Whitefish---the last pup in the litter---traveled to Helena and became the First Dog.

Featuring fun and fascinating information about what a governor does and how Montana government works, First Dog teaches kids that government belongs to them---and shows them that one day they, too, could be sitting at the governor's desk.

About the Author:

Jessica Solberg was born and raised in Montana and graduated from Montana State University. She works as a book editor. Dogs and government are two of her favorite things.

Review:

Meet Jag, Montana’s first Dog—chicken chaser, kid-licker, and champion of democracy. In this literary debut by Governor Brian Schweitzer’s border collie, Jag tells his life story from a Whitefish farm litter to the marbled hallways of the state capitol. Along the way we get a lesson in civics: how state government works, what a governor does, what bills are, and how to dodge a boring meeting through the governor’s secret passageway. All this through the brown-and-blue eyes of a runt pup that learns and teaches the biggest lesson in democracy: that even the last pup of the litter can grow up to be First Dog. It’s geared to the 6- to 12-year-old set, Jag’s natural audience. He got some help from writer Jessica Solberg and illustrator Robert Rath, who presumably remained faithful to Jag’s original inspiration. You can’t ask more from a modest, picturesque memoir like this one. After I read it to my 4 ½-year old, I overheard her singing about mermaids and unicorns—that live in the governor’s office. Civics lesson complete. —Krys Holmes, Montana Magazine
