Story Summary

Sam doesn't just want a dog, he needs a dog but meets with immediate refusal from his dad. Thinking his dad might soften if he sees Sam as responsible, his mom gets him a job walking a neighbor's dog, a tiny, tiny, tiny dog with curly brown hair and a tiny name, Peep. Although mortified at first to be seen with such a pooch, Sam discovers that Peep opens relations not only with the girls in his class but with his arch enemy, Valentino.
