“Lily has always wanted a dog. She wakes up one morning and finds a big furry brown 'doggy' outside her bedroom window. He isn't like other dogs, he doesn't do tricks well, and he likes to eat weird things, including balls. Lily's mother tells her that she needs to put up a poster because he probably belongs to somebody. And he does -- the zoo! Adorable!”
-- Debbie Buck, Vintage Books, Vancouver, WA


Description

Join Lily and her brand new pet-a lost, loveable, and very large bear that she mistakes as a doggy-as they share a fantastic day together.

When Lily looks out of her bedroom window, she finds the best surprise ever: her very own lost dog! But this is no normal puppy, this is actually a lost, lovable bear!

Nevertheless, Lily and Doggy quickly become fast friends. Sure Doggy doesn't eat his dog food, can't do any dog tricks, and never ever does what Lily tells him, but this rambunctious "pup" still steals Lily's heart.

However, Lily's mommy knows that every lost dog has a home of their own with people who miss them dearly. So Lily creates a "Found Dog" poster about their fantastic day together. But what happens if someone actually claims Doggy?
