The dog in this book doesn't want to be carried in a handbag (how embarrassing!) or eat heart-shaped mini puppy treats (I mean, come on!). And under no circumstances does he ever want to be called “choochie pooh”! If only his owner understood. All this dog wants to do is play with the big dogs in the park—chasing sticks, jumping in muddy puddles, and being a regular part of the pack. From Sean Taylor, the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, and Kate Hindley, illustrator of Worst in Show, comes a picture-book comedy filled with vibrant art and starring a fed-up pup who learns that when it comes to making new friends, appearances aren’t everything.
When you’re a preciously small canine with a big and bold personality, how do you show your doting owners that you want to be treated like an ordinary dog?
The dog in this book is totally embarrassed by their owner. I mean come on, what dog want to be called Choochie Pooh, eat heart shaped treats or be carried in a handbag. Dogs want to be dogs. Fortunately for this dog he finds a bunch of new friends whose "person" also calls them by they embarrassing names. It is a wonderful feeling to fit in and this dog has found his posse!
