Hello

Little Tramp book cover I am Tobi Little Deer.  Welcome to my website. While you’re here I’ll tell you more about myself and my adventure books, with photos of places where my stories are set. I’ll model some of my best practical all-weather clothing for you, and you can read my blog on pertinent issues.  
Indian Hunter in Central Park
Indian Hunter in Central Park
  I am a Native American dog, a Chihuahua.  My ancestors walked across the Bering Land Bridge to Alaska with the first people to arrive in North America, thousands of years before Columbus discovered us.

Big Deer Meet-up
    My name Tobi means “God’s goodness,” because I came to my friend Ted at a time when he says he needed me, and I made him happy. I’m named Little Deer because I have a deer’s face somewhat— tan with black nose and eyes, my ears for antlers.
Greenwich Village Street
A Greenwich Village Street
    I was born in Oklahoma, just north of the Texas panhandle, so if I’d stayed there I’d probably be a cow dog.  But I ended up in New York City, where I live with Ted in Greenwich Village, one of the oldest, most quaint and beautiful sections of Manhattan.  
Tobi's bookcase house
My Favorite Place
    There, in our comfortable apartment, cool in summer, warm in winter, I have a fleece-lined house set into the bottom of a bedroom bookcase.

Lots of Toys
      I keep my pile of toys in Ted’s studio, where I can toss them about without their rolling under furniture as happens in the living room.    
Out For a Walk
Out For a Walk
  New York is a very exciting place. I strut along on neighborhood walks, so everyone knows it’s my street and my block, particularly the other dogs.  People often stop to admire me, and they talk to Ted.  We jog every morning along the piers of Hudson River Park. Sundays, weather allowing, we take long walks in Central Park.

On a Sand Cliff
  During the summer months we travel often to Long Island, to a cottage by the ocean.  In the cooler air of sunrise and the evening sunsets, I run on the beach, an endless, wide shoreline of softest sand, just out of reach of the waves.  Daytime, when the sun is high, I bask in its warmth on our front deck, or move to the shade.  It’s a dog’s life.   All in all I’m quite content.  I wear nice clothes when weather requires, and then I get to model them for photographs. During my naps while Ted is writing I dream, and my imagined adventures channel through him.  However, I myself am very real, a little dog with a big personality, and not at all made up.
