Summary of Dog in Charge Summary of Dog in Charge Reviews for Dog in Charge An Excerpt from Dog in Charge
When the going gets tough, Dog . . . takes a nap

Dog can Sit.
He can Stay.
He can even Dance.
But when he's in charge, can he keep the cats in line?
All one, two, three, four, five of them?

With slapstick silliness and utterly earnest charm, Dog will quickly wiggle his way into preschoolers' hearts.
