A characteristically warm and engaging family story by the winner of the 2000 Smarties Book Prize Gold Award. One morning Kate bursts into her parents' bedroom. "Let's get a pup!" she cries. So they set off to the Rescue Centre ("The centre for dogs without a home. The centre for dogs all alone"). There they see dogs of all shapes and sizes. Kate knows which one she wants, though, the moment she sees him. He's small and he's cute and he gets all excited. To Kate, Dave is everything a dog could be. But then she sees Rosy...Rosy is old and grey and broad as a table and she radiates Good Intention. But the family only has room for one dog, and so they turn their back on her and head for home. But will they be able to forget her?
