The main idea of this book is that dogs may be mischievous but are still lovable. I enjoyed this book's plot and writing. I enjoyed that the plot took place over the course of one day and included realistic things most dogs do on a daily basis. Most dogs chase cats, hate baths, and beg for food just like Fergus. As a reader, the plot allowed me to connect the daily life of my dog to Fergus's daily life.
I enjoyed the illustrations because they were colorful and enhanced the story. The illustrations of Fergus begging for food include four illustrations. Each illustration contains a different color background which helps the reader notice that the pictures are related but show movement. The succession of these illustrations show sad-eyed Fergus begging for food from the narrator then licking his lips when the narrator says, "Oh, all right..." and gives him the food. ( )

The main reason i like this story is because of how much Fergus reminds me of my dog, Winky. Just like Fergus and his owner, I go thought the same troubles with my dog. Sometimes my dog can be mischievous like Fergus but in the end they are both sweet dogs. My favorite part of the story was when Fergus and his owner were standing about to go outside. The page first say "Ready, Set" and then the next page said "CAT!" and Fergus went and ran off with the funniest excited face. ( )

Fergus does not listen that well. He doesn't eat what he should and always makes a mess. However, at the end of the day, he's still a good boy! ( )

This book is about the day in the life of a dog named Fergus. His owner fusses at him, but he always seems to get his way. This book wasn't a favorite of mine. Nothing really stood out to draw me in. ( )
