Ron and Cookie Rockovich of Swissvale have a granddaughter who is sharing the spotlight with Oprah Winfrey, Tony Bennett and other celebrities in a new book, “A Letter to My Dog: Notes to Our Best Friends.”
Sarah Mortellaro, their granddaughter from Granville, OH, was only a fourth-grader when her “letter to her dog” was sent last year to a national contest. Sarah's letter was selected for publication.
The book by celebrity photographer Robin Layton, with Kimi Culp and Lisa Espamer, is a collection of letters and portraits featuring dogs and their owners, including celebrities as well as everyday people.
Rockovich owns Rockovich Tool Service on Burton Street in Swissvale.
