This pet had to do tricks for treats, his owner liked to dress him up, and he hated wearing the cone of shame. He decides to run away.
Little Bee Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
He shucks his dog collar, eats as much as he likes and can go #2 without anyone watching. It's a good life until he sees his owner with a new dog! It goes to all the places he thought of his and loves his owner. Luckily she was just babysitting the dog.
He decides maybe it would be a good time to go home...
