Review by: Angela Hope on April 13, 2015 :
A great short story. It tells of the trying times of owning a puppy as well as the many rewards they bring. Every child should enjoy a pet. I loved the humour with the name.

Very nice. I love stories about puppies and this one is very unique. It is adorable to have the little puppy think his name is "Look, here!" Very detailed. I love it.
