              Charles Peterson and his siblings have been begging for a dog for a while now, and suddenly, Charles's dad brings home a golden retriever puppy named Goldie. She needs some housetraining and love. Charles hopes they can keep Goldie, but his parents say they can only take care of her until she finds the right forever home.

                  if you like golden retrievers this is the book for you. Join Goldie Charles and Sammy and a great adventurous time to get Goldie and amazing home. I'd recommend moms reading this book to like three year olds and then for older kids like eight and up should be able to read this book easily. πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™
