Tales from a Not-So-Perfect Pet Sitter

Tales from a Not-So-Perfect Pet Sitter

Series: Dork Diaries (Book #10)
by Rachel Renée Russell

In this installment, a golden retriever and her seven puppies are left on the doorstep of the Fuzzy Friends Animal Rescue Center. Unfortunately, the shelter is completely full at that moment and can't take them in. Not wanting to risk the dogs winding up at a shelter that doesn't have a "no kill" policy, Brandon, Chloe, Zoey, and Nikki all take up the task of looking after the dogs until the shelter makes room and/or they can find homes for them themselves. But one thing leads to another, and soon, Nikki has to try and keep the dogs a secret from her family and her school. And of course, many hijinks ensue as she quickly learns that taking care of seven rambunctious puppies is much harder than it looks.
