About the Story

I have a dog. An inconvenient dog. When I wake up, my dog is inconvenient. When I'm getting dressed, my dog is inconvenient. And when I'm making tunnels, my dog is SUPER inconvenient. But sometimes, an inconvenient dog can be big and warm and cuddly. Sometimes, an inconvenient dog can be the most comforting friend in the whole wide world.

We all know that a puppy can be the perfect playmate. Or it can be IN THE WAY ALL THE TIME. But even the most mischievous of puppies can grow up to become a very best friend.

Told by author/illustrator Charlotte Lance herself, this tender and engaging story, I Have a Dog (an inconvenient dog), is adorably funny, and will charm dog-lovers of all ages with its simple, repetitive text, and richly detailed illustrations. Ideal for encouraging young children to discuss pet ownership.
