Scout is her favorite Springer Spaniel and she insists on writing silly stories about his capers. However, things get a bit chaotic when NEW PUPPY (Benne Wafer - that's Mr. Wafer to you) joins the Montagu Street gang.
Sigh. Surely his fluffy ears were more beautiful and interesting to scratch than whichever celebrity had recently croaked and the hoopla on cnn.com. Really! But Scout did enjoy lolling about on his Charleston piazza, counting his freckles, chasing striped lizards and barking at the postman. He tried to stay busy while he waited for the weekend when he could go to the marina, swim off the boat ramp and fetch a tennis ball.
