Publisher's Summary

All Hal had ever wanted was a dog. "Never!" cries his mother. "Think of the mess, the scratch-marks, the puddles on the floor."

But on the morning of Hal's 10th birthday, the unbelievable happens. He's allowed to choose a puppy at Easy Pets, a rent-a-pet agency (a fact his parents keep from him). The moment he sees the odd-looking terrier, he knows he's found a friend for life. But no one tells Hal that Fleck must be returned and when Hal wakes up on Monday morning, Fleck is gone. If dog and boy are to stay together they'll have to run away....

From the renowned Eva Ibbotson comes her final novel, a tale laced with humor and full of heart, and stunning in its beauty and all things dog.

    "Another fun story by Ibbotson"

    Eva Ibbotson has a real talent at getting inside the minds of her characters. I have enjoyed all of her books, those for young readers and also those for older readers.

    This book tells the story of a young boy who wants a dog of his own more than anything. His selfish parents don't want to be bothered with a dog, but for his birthday allow him to choose a dog, but from a pet RENTAL business, and without telling the boy it was a "loaner dog". The boy and dog bond, then are dismayed when the separation comes.

    The bulk of the story tells of the efforts taken by both of this pair to ensure they can live out their lives together. Heartwarming.
