The first book in the doggone awesome, howl-ariously illustrated, bestselling series from the creator of Middle School! Rafe Khatchadorian’s lovable dog Junior gets his chance to shine.
 
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I've been waiting for ages to tell my story, and now it's finally happening! Being Rafe's dog isn't always easy, but it is always EXCITING! I've got so much to tell you about:
  • How I protect the yard from birds, raccoons, squirrels, raccoons, mail carriers … and did I mention RACCOONS?
  • Sniffing pooch posteriors for the latest canine news.
  • And the terrifying monster hiding in the hall closet: the vacuum cleaner!
These were all the most paw-some parts of my doggie life — until the evil Mrs. Stricker threatened to send me back to the pound if I didn't learn to behave. Now Rafe and I have to go to obedience school and win the trophy for Best Trained Dog . . . or else!
