She tries everything to convince her parents to let her have one, but nothing works. She is sure that she will spend another whole summer alone - dogless and friendless - with no one to share her adventures in the woods and waterways of northeastern Pennsylvania. Just when things look bleakest, a dog appears on the side of the road and needs rescuing. He looks exactly like the dog shes been dreaming of. Together they spend long, golden days fishing, swimming, and exploring the woods. Jeff works his magic on everyone in the house, but its soon evident that he has a nose for trouble, like digging up the neighbors rhubarb patch and overturning a pail of green paint. Suzannes father rapidly loses patience. One more incident, he warns, and that dog is going to the farm.This heartwarming story, taken from the authors childhood, will remind readers of all ages what its like to wish for something so hard - and to love something so completely - it makes your heart ache.
