Synopsis:

Yorkie Doodle Dandy is Corporal William A. Wynne's story about Smoky, a tiny Yorkshire Terrier found in a New Guinea foxhole during World War II. Smoky helped save the lives of servicemen who were faced with imminent airfield attack. Wynne's own life was spared while under a shipboard kamikaze attack--led by Smoky--Smoky is credited internationally for her therapy work in hospitals and care facilities. Post-war, Smoky continued therapy work and performed on live television with Bill as trainer. Smoky ultimately proved to the world the therapeutic value of dogs to people during war, conflict, and recovery, as well as in friendship, entertainment, and hope.

Author William A. Wynne is nationally recognized for his award-winning black and white photography. While specializing in horticulture during high school, he took an elective course in photography, which changed his life forever. In 1944, the 26th Photo Reconnaissance Squadron of the U.S. Army Air Force placed Wynne directly into the Pacific Theater of WWII, where he became Smoky's best friend.

About the Author:

William A. Wynne was a corporal who served with the 26th Photo Reconnaissance Squadron of the U.S. Army Air Force in the Pacific Theater during WWII. He is also well known and recognized for award-winning black and white photography.

Bill trained dogs for Hollywood films after the war, and then joined NACA/NASA's Flight Icing Research Team at Lewis Laboratories in Cleveland, Ohio. He worked for The Cleveland Plain Dealer in the 1950s and 60s, where he won numerous national awards. He later received awards for lifetime achievement as a journalist, author, inventor, and decorated WWII Veteran.

Bill married his high school sweetheart, Margaret Roberts, in 1946. They raised nine children and were married for 57 years. Bill is renowned for his training of ''Smoky,'' a 4-pound Yorkshire Terrier, WWII hero, and the first therapy dog. Smoky's story is described in Bill's popular memoir, Yorkie Doodle Dandy. Bill continues an active life while honoring Smoky's many contributions to humanity.
