‘Chihuahuas Like Cheese’ is a delightful story about dogs, adoptions and living happily with a life time supply of cheese.
This story is about one little Chihuahua named Bogie who finds himself homeless, staying in a shelter. Rescued from the shelter, his foster mom tries to have him adopted by nice people at the PetSmart adoption day. But Bogie has other plans.
Bogie comes to his foster home and doesn’t want to leave. Even though he’s the smallest, he lines up for treats with the other dogs: Beau, Lexi, Beemer, Jack, Rascal and Hannah. While the other dogs sit for their treats, Bogie feels too small at the end of the line. So he jumps up and down. He gets so into jumping around, he missed the cheese.
For a while Bogie feels sad. He hides under blankets and doesn’t play as much with the other dogs. One day, Bogie notices something out of the ordinary. He barks. He brings attention to events that have gone terribly wrong.
To find out how Bogie becomes a hero, read ‘Chihuahuas Like Cheese.’
Illustrations of dogs and all the action colorfully represent the story.
