My Dog Mouse

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 1
  • Reading Level: Grade 1

“Can I take Mouse for a walk?” I ask, and I’m always allowed.

We set off, very slowly. Mouse walks at a snail’s pace. He stops at lamp posts and fences and sniffs for a long time. Sometimes he looks up at me and then I usually say something. I maybe say “old man” in a very nice voice, not my usual one.

My Dog Mouse offers friendship, humor, and gentle heartache in one dog walk. This is a book for anyone who knows what it is to love an old, slow dog, with ears as thin as pancakes.
