Charles loves Sweetie at first sight. She is a quick learner and has a whole lot of charisma, but Buddy is jealous every time the new miniature poodle gets near the family. Charles needs to find a home for this puppy without upsetting his own. Note from author Ellen Miles: Every puppy is different. The fun part about writing The Puppy Place is putting those distinct personalities front and center, really treating the dogs as primary characters. I love getting to know each puppy the Petersons foster, and I hope readers do, too.
