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?

    The "world's funniest joke" is a term used by Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire in 2002 to summarize one of the results of his research. For his experiment, named LaughLab, he created a website where people could rate and submit jokes. Purposes of the research included discovering the joke that had the widest appeal and understanding among different cultures, demographics and countries.The History Channel eventually hosted a special on the subject The winning joke, which was later found to be based on a 1951 Goon Show sketch by Spike Milligan, was submitted by Gurpal Gosal of Manchester: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?".
