A fun read for young readers that provides a simple story about the challenging learning of a dogs obedience

Unruly but genial pooch puts his bad habits to good use on a burglar. Fun story in a "revised and re-illustrated" edition which I have not seen so I cannot compare. ( )

A children’s book that has great children’s humor. I could be a good read for just about anyone.

A disobedient dog who even gets kicked out of obedience school saves the family one night when a burglar breaks into the home. ( )
  sbergin | Oct 18, 2011 |
In this story the family dog doesn't listen to commands no matter what they try so they take him to obedience school. In obedience school he does the same things he does at home which the other dogs start copying. Therefore he gets kicked out of obedience school. That night a burglar breaks into the mothers room and calls out there is a burglar. The little girl comes down the hall remembering the commands that Pinkerton misunderstood. She calls fetch out to the dog and the dog starts "ripping up the newspaper" which is the man. Then she calls out come and he jumps out the window with the burglar still in his teeth. The mom walks outside and tells Pinkerton she is the burglar so he comes over and loves her up like he does when they call burglar out. Happy Ending.
