About the Authors
Len Lucero, DVM, is a veterinarian who lives in Sumterville, Florida with his wife and two children. Growing up on small ranch in New Mexico, Len always loved animals and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. His dream came true, and he now owns and operates Sumter Mobile Veterinarian where he takes care of animals both large and small. One of those small animals came into his life to stay—and that is his little friend and companion Chris P. Bacon.
Kristina Tracy is a writer, mom, and many other things (wife, gardener, decorator, horseback rider). She lives in Olivenhain, California, with her husband and two children, Ava and Dane. She is the author of nine children's books, written in collaboration with the best-selling authors Louise L. Hay, Deepak Chopra, Christiane Northrup, M.D., Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, and Doreen Virtue.
Chris P. Bacon, the pig in a wheelchair who quickly became a YouTube sensation in early 2013 with over 1.2 million views, is setting out to teach children about compassion, acceptance, and loving your imperfections. Chris P. Bacon was rescued by his veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero after a young woman reluctantly dropped him off to be euthanized because of a congenital defect that affects his rear legs. Dr. Lucero gave Chris a second chance at life and with two wheels strapped to the rear of his body, he is now a perfectly healthy and happy piggie on-the-go.
