Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

Eric Bright and his doggy best mate, Ugly, are back. They’re up against their biggest challenge yet: solving the serious problem looming over Eric’s mean and miserable big sister, Gretchen. It’s lucky Ugly is the friendliest dog ever. He’s a star companion pooch, working with the kids at school. He’s surely going to rescue Eric’s sister – and, on top of that, win almost every category at the upcoming pet show. Surely.

But when Ugly goes off his food and refuses to play, Eric must figure out what’s hounding him. Can he fix Ugly and Gretchen on his own?

My Dog is a Winner is a paw-some tale about friendship, compassion and what it takes to be a real hero.
