They love to go to the doggy park with their owners, Will and Connie, and their mother, Raisin. Spunky and Spuds know they should listen to their mother and not run into the street, but Spunky gets very excited and forgets. The puppies know they shouldnt talk to strangers either, but when Spunky sees a boy from the neighborhood, his curiosity gets him into trouble. And when Bruno, a dog who doesnt listen to his parents, comes to visit, Spunky may find himself in a very bad situation.
This childrens story tells the tale of two puppies who must learn some very important lessons about the world around them in order to be safe.
Peaches is a family pet poodle who has great powers to find
things when no one else can. In Finding Dipsey Doodle, Peaches is asked by Baby
Squirrel to help find Dipsey. She seems to be lost and no one can locate her.
Since Peaches believes it’s important to help friends whenever possible, she
puts on her “private-eye hat” and looks everywhere for Dipsey. She even gets
her mommy to take her out in the snow.
She asks Mr. Rooster, Mrs. Pig, and Mr. Horse if they’ve seen Dipsey
Doodle. At last, Peaches finds Dipsey safe and sound in a very surprising
place. Peaches returns Dipsey to her friends and everyone is happy once again. Look
for the continuing adventures of Peaches the Private Eye Poodle such as: The
Missing Muffin Caper and Where is Loosey Goosey
