Pet lovers will adore this funny romp about the ups and downs of day in the life of a kid and her canine.

Walking your dog is easy...but only if your dog wants to walk.

This bouncy day-in-the-life adventure shows what happens when you pair a spunky little girl with a dog who's as stubborn as he is furry.

Debut author-illustrator team Elizabeth Stevens Omlor and Neesha Hudson use spare text and gorgeous ink-and-watercolor illustrations to show kids that working as a team requires cooperation, patience, and heart.

What reviewers say:

Pet care seems like it’s all fun and games—and a cinch to boot: “Greet your dog. Groom your dog. Feed your dog,” instructs the narrator. But the slyly funny, watercolor-and-pencil pictures tell a different story.

– Publishers Weekly

The minimal text works well with the maximal visual storytelling.

Beginning readers will be able to read this refreshing tale alone; younger kids will tell it from the pictures.

Kirkus Review

My kindergarten students loved this book! Every time it is read, they find new, funny moments in the detailed illustrations that they did not notice before. This is a perfect mentor text for teaching writing to early elementary students. It can be used to teach writing pattern books, and for teaching how to use illustrations to add details. Pairs well with the Units of Study!
