Author: T. T. Sutherland

The Pet Trouble series of books by author T. T. Sutherland is all about dogs who just can’t seem to behave themselves! The hilarious books in this series relates the sometimes-complicated love-not-quite-hate-but-close relationship lots of kids have with their pets.

Book #1: Runaway Retriever

Parker's new golden retriever Merlin is a guy's best friend, with tons of energy for walks and playing catch. And Merlin clearly thinks Parker is the best thing since rawhide bones. There’s just one problem. Merlin is an escape artist. No fence is too high, no cage too strong to keep him from following Parker everywhere he goes. Can Parker make Merlin sit – and stay?

Book #2: Loudest Beagle On The Block

Ella spends all her time inside, practicing her music for the school talent show. But with her new beagle, Trumpet, she's starting to make new friends and see a whole world away from the piano bench. There’s just one problem. Every time Ella starts to sing, Trumpet howls. Loudly. If Ella doesn't lose her canine costar, she doesn't stand a chance at the show – but can tone-deaf Trumpet tone it down?

Book #3: Mud-Puddle Poodle

When she finally gets a dog of her own, Rosie knows it’s going to be perfect – unlike everything else in her chaotic house with four crazy brothers. There’s just one problem. Buttons hates her fancy dog pillow, but she loves a good, dirty pile of leaves! Rosie’s new pet is her complete opposite. Can she ever learn to live with this mess of a dog?

Book #4: Bulldog Won’t Budge

Eric has always wanted a dog. So when a bulldog named Meatball is abandoned at his mother’s veterinarian office, Eric is sure it’s fate – he can give Meatball a new home! There’s just one problem. Meatball is stubborn. And slow. Eric wants to go to the park and play fetch, but Meatball likes to lie in the grass and drool. Is there anything Eric can do to get this bulldog to budge?

He doesn't give a sh*t for women.  We can both agree that women should not have the right to kill their children when they're toddlers, so when is the right of the mother to determine the life of the child taken away?  women should have a right to choose an abortion up until the term in its pregnancy when it can actually sense itself which is about 6 months old, and guess what you cant actually abort a baby after 6 months in clinics so its not a big deal ADVERTISEMENT If Hillary wins, itll be a big deal. She can/will legalize it to be whenever the mother chooses. No. That's not fair. A baby didn't choose to come into this world, you (the parent) put them in it.  You can't be like "oh, I don't think I'll be a good parent even though it's 7 months into my pregnancy." And think abortion is a rational decision.
