About the Book

‘Dogs Are… Just Like You!’ is a children’s picture book narrated by pet therapy dog Gabriel, a Weimaraner, who teaches children about empathy for animals, including how a child must look after his or her pet. Gabriel is also the Founding Dog of Gabriel’s Angels, a pet therapy charity for at-risk children.

Sadly, in May of 2010, Gabriel passed away, but during his ten years as a therapy dog he reached over 10,000 children and left an inspirational legacy of unconditional love and promise for thousands of abused, neglected and at-risk children.

Gabriel’s magical legacy continues with Gabriel’s Angels Pet Therapy Teams actively serving Arizona crisis nurseries, domestic violence and homeless shelters, group homes, residential treatment programs, and targeted school programs.

The program’s goal is to increase the overall sense of well-being and happiness for children in a safe environment, and to build critical core behaviors, such as trust, empathy, respect, tolerance and self-esteem. To learn more about Gabriel’s Angels, please visit


“Emily Randolph beautifully articulates the special bond that exists between children and animals in Dogs Are… Just Like You! and Patti DuBois’ delightful illustrations bring it all to life. By teaching children how to care for a dog, the story teaches children how to care for themselves. They will learn that animals have feelings too and their needs are similar. Therapy Dog Gabriel touched the lives of many at-risk children during his ten years working and taught many of the lessons in this book. It is a must read for children everywhere!” – Pam Gaber, CEO, Gabriel’s Angels

“Gabriel’s Angels and PetSmart share a belief in the positive and lasting impact that pets can have on the lives of children. Through this heartwarming book, children will learn how to be responsible pet parents and enjoy the unconditional love that only pets can provide.”- David Lenhardt, President and Chief Operating Officer, PetSmart.

Thank you for your support!
