The family names the pup Puddles and he is completely enamored with Fuddles. He follows Fuddles everywhere...including the litter box! The poor stalked kitty can only get a break when the two are let outside to play.
One day, Puddles takes things too far by eating Fuddles's food. Fuddles decides to lay down the law. Puddles soon learns to give Fuddles his space. But what happens when the friend Fuddles didn't want becomes the friend that he desperately needs?
I simply adored this story from start to finish! Being the proud fur mom to five dogs and two cats, I can definitely relate to the tensions that develop when a new pet is brought home. The illustrations are gorgeously adorable. I was quite surprised to see a two page spread illustration. Vischer was able to beautifully convey an emotional scene through stunning illustrations.
I highly recommend this book to readers and animal lovers of all ages. Anyone who has ever owned or fostered multiple pets will totally be able to relate to this fantastic tale. The characters of Fuddles and Puddles are sure to enchant and delight both young and old.
