In addition to her role as a contributing reporter for the Weekly Villager, Mialie T. Szymanski is the creator of the bi-weekly column “Puppy Tails”. This children’s story time column stars Doodle Dog, a floppy-eared puppy who has an optimistic perspective of the world around him. Szymanski's picture book “Doodle Dog Enjoys the Day” chronicles a day in the life of this “paws”itive pup. The upcoming
read-aloud anthology “Puppy Tails: Adventures of Doodle Dog” is a collection of the columns and
illustrations as seen in The Weekly Villager over the last year.
Tracing its roots back to 1867 when it launched under the name 'The Garrettsville Journal', the 'Villager' has served as the local source of community news for over 100 years.
The Villager is published and distributed weekly by The Weekly Villager, Inc. Our website is available 24/7 and includes access to our digital archives.
