Description
The much-anticipated sequel to the BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK Award winner "LET'S GET A PUP " SAID KATE
Call in the dog trainer Don t-Care Dave, the high-energy destructive dynamo, is definitely out of control. But when the Brigadier turns up to teach this pup a few things, Dave is not the only one who learns something new. In a hugely satisfying sequel to the award-winning "LET'S GET A PUP " SAID KATE, Bob Graham creates a funny, warmhearted story to remind us that when it comes to dogs -- and their humans -- it's affection and trust, loyalty and love (and of course those silky soft ears) that really matter.
