Call in the dog trainer Don't-Care Dave, the high-energy destructive dynamo, is definitely out of control. But when the Brigadier turns up to teach this pup a few things, Dave is not the only one who learns something new. In a hugely satisfying sequel to the award-winning "LET'S GET A PUP", Bob Graham creates a funny, warmhearted story to remind us that when it comes to dogs -- and their humans -- it's affection and trust, loyalty and love (and of course those silky soft ears) that really matter.
