One Dog and His Boy
All Hal had ever wanted was a dog. But a dog would damage the expensive carpets in Hals' glamorous home, and his wealthy parents refuse to consider one. Then they discover Easy Pets, a convenient dog-rental agency. Terrier Fleck arrives on Hal's birthday, but when Hal discovers that his dog must be returned, he runs away-along with a group of pedigree breeds joyfully escaping from Easy Pets. An irresistible adventure from a truly great and much-loved children's author that every dog-loving child will adore.
