AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Harry and Hopper do everything together. Hopper helps Harry with his homework and Harry helps Hopper escape from his weekly bath. At night, Hopper sneaks past Dad and goes to sleep in Harry's bed. One day, Harry comes home from school and his dog isn't there to greet him. Harry will never know the feel or the smell of Hopper again. But love is strong, and Hopper will stay with Harry as long as he needs him ...' (Libraries Australia record)
