                  This is a book about a ten year old buy who really wants two dogs, but not just any dogs, these special type of dogs. The book goes through of him spending two years to earn enough money to buy these two dogs he saw in a magazine ad. It is a really special book and I love it a lot because it is so heart warming. Try to read it if you can.
