So funny with a great ending

Love this book

I wish I had a dog called Pickles.

it made me impressed because I am usually scared of dogs but she is different and of course football is not my favourite sport but I still like it

Loved that the dog saved the world cup.

I thought this book was really interesting and really brings awareness to homelessness and struggles. I really love how the book is written in the perspective of the dog and Pickles is really positive. I wonder what the book would be like from the perspective of Elsie or Dad...
