Both a classic tale of two boys and their new puppies and an informative description of responsible pet care, this well-paced story has just the right amount of stomach-fluttering suspense. Parallel accounts follow Andrew and Matt—and their puppies, Boomer and Chance—over the course of a year, and each short chapter provides a lesson on animal behavior, such as A puppy needs to spend lots of time around people and Never EVER scold a puppy when he comes to you. Promoting responsible pet adoption and ownership, consistent veterinary care, and obedience training, the book also provides a pet tip index, a supplies list, a suggested reading list, and a note to parents.
