“In this sequel to Once I Ate a Pie, MacLachlan manages the almost impossible task of creating poetry which captures the endearing playfulness and comical antics of puppies without over-the-top sentimental sweetness. The painterly portraits of different breeds of dogs that accompany each poem will capture the heart of dog lovers everywhere. This book is irresistible!”
— Pam Stilp, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI

Description


What makes a puppy's day complete?

Swimming and then shaking water all over you. Catching "presents" for you and then bringing them inside the house. Rolling in your nice wool sweater. Snuggling in your lap.

In their second ode to canine companions, Patricia MacLachlan, Emily MacLachlan Charest, and Katy Schneider once again offer an irresistible glimpse into the mischievous canine mind. Captured here are adorable confessions and spirited accounts of the things that puppies do—and don't do—while in search of love, adventure, and treats from the table.
