Was she lost, "dognapped", or did she run away, because he no longer liked her just the way she was?
Rufus has been dreaming of getting a dog. His best friend has one. His worst friend has one. But his dad has a few objections: They whine. They gnaw. They bark. They scratch. They beg. They drool.

And if Rufus's dad thinks dogs are a problem, he won't know what hit him when he meets the "Guinea Pig That Thinks She's a Dog". She barks. She bites. She'll eat your homework.
