This is the story of a dog who tells his own tale. As a pup he is separated from his mother and siblings. This unusual dog learns about living on the dangerous streets and even makes up poetry. He finds human friends, has the chance to win fame and fortune, and is given the name Keeper. Through it all Keeper can’t forget his long lost-little sister. If only they could be together again, life would be perfect. But an old enemy is watching and waiting to make his move.
“Throughout this lighthearted saga of the narrator’s ‘dog days,’ the author proves she is as well versed in animal behavior as in human sensibilities.”—Publishers Weekly
