Reminiscent of a similar fable regarding a human boy, this hilarious short story is nothing like that!
Young puppy Riley is learning what it's like to be on lookout duty for daddy. It's a lonely job, thankless, and quite boring! So this little guy creates a fun new game that just happens to go various shades of wrong. His high jinx causes all sorts of commotion at all the wrong moments - but the question remains - is there a lesson to be learned?
This is a true story, one of many funny antics that enthrall this award-winning author on a nightly basis. If you liked this story, be sure to check out some of Shields' other books. You'll be glad you did!
