Summary

Summary

The special, loving relationships between children and their dogs are celebrated in humorous rhyming poems and playful photographs. From waking ("Oh boy! Oh boy!/Look around. Don't you see?/ Another day has arrived/Just for me!") to bedtime, all the highlights of a dog's busy day are affectionately rendered, including the joyous belly rub ("Good human, good human./You are the best."), the walk, begging for food, barking at the mailman, and taking a car ride. Kids won't be able to resist this fresh, funny look at a dog's world!
