66 pages of richly colored hand drawn illustrations.

The main story is told completely without text.

A originally illustrated story of by a fresh new voice about how small decisions can have big impact in the lives of our canine friends. Concludes with drawings and bilingual (Spanish/English) explanations of dog body language and a homemade dog food recipe.

Great as an inspirational info book for kids who love animals. Also a wonderful info tool for those who work to harbor better dog stewardship, like rescue and spay and neuter groups.


A boy on a bicycle with two puppies in a basket has an accident and one puppy wanders off in a daze. He and the other puppy try to find her in the big city where they live, but they are not successful. The lost puppy has a much rougher start than the puppy with the boy. In their dreams the dogs continue to play with each other but during the day they each have very different life experiences.

The lost puppy's story illustrates how lack of caretaker knowledge about dog well-being can lead to a less happy companion. Told without judgement. Of course there is a happy ending!

Throughout, there is leeway in the interpretation of the illustrations to allow the reader to fill in from his or her own imagination about how the story details play out.

The concept of spaying/neutering is suggested as a positive way to help keep a dog healthy and help reduce the number of homeless dogs in the world.
