About the Book

Biscuit, a little Havanese puppy, arrives in his owners’ lives first when they adopt him from Sunrise Kennels. After he settles in and learns important lessons about being a dog and living with a pack, his mom and dad return to the kennels and adopt another dog, Sausage.

Biscuit is initially jealous of the new puppy, but they eventually become good friends. Biscuit shares the lessons he’s learned with his pal. One day, Biscuit disappears from their yard. And then he shares his final lesson: love is the most important thing.

Through the eyes of two pups, this charming tale for children explores the issues of being loved, being part of a family, being a newcomer, being jealous, and being lost. This playful story of love, acceptance, and belonging touches on real challenges in children’s lives.
