Max and his older brother, Pete, are getting a dog. A dog needs to be played with. That’s the fun part. But a dog also needs to be fed, bathed, and walked. Max and Pete promise to share the responsibilities. But when Fudge comes to live with them, it isn’t long before Pete decides that a dog is more work than he thought, and Max discovers that there are unexpected rewards for being the dependable one.
