About the Book:
This is an engaging story for children to read or have read to them about a lost puppy. Hopefully, it will encourage young ones to think about the story when they come upon a stray dog or cat; and seek the guidance of an adult in helping to find it's family...or new home.

This is a really cute story from a lost dog's point of view. My youngest daughter asked a lot of questions while I read the story to her because the illustrations are loaded with que details she is learning to use when reading books. We had a lot of fun talking about the two dogs in the story and why they were doing certain things. She also had a lot of questions about animal rescue and asked if we can go visit our "no kill" animal shelter to see if we could be foster parents to dogs. This made me smile. 

My daughter was able to relate to the story easily. She said she liked learning dogs can get scared just like her if lost. She also said it was good Mr. Pupples listened to his mommy about staying in one place until someone found him. LOL - it was nice to see the lessons we have been teaching her were easily re-enforced with this cute picture book.
