T.P. is livin' the good life! He's got all the dog food and treats he can eat, a boy who loves him--whose parents even let him sleep in the bed on cold mornings! He doesn't even mind sharing the house with Cord, the cross-eyed kitty. What more could a dog ask for?
                    Then one day, a strange box arrives at the house. T.P.'s heard lots of talk about chocolate this and chocolate that--and now the family is saying that there's chocolate in that big box! But it doesn't smell like chocolate…it smells like puppy!
                    T.P.'s world is turned upside down when Mocha, the chocolate lab puppy, comes to stay. This puppy has a LOT to learn--and T.P. isn't so sure he wants to be looking out for her and keeping her out of trouble. Then one day, Mocha gets into REAL trouble…and it's up to T.P. to save her! But CAN he save her? Can he overcome his own terrible fears and save her in time? Read Goosed by Bill Wallace to find out!  (Karen Wiedmeier,, Media Specialist Intern, A.
