Synopsis

From the moment she lays eyes on him, Agapanthus knows that Major Bark is a champion. But can he win the Champion Dog Show? Good Little Mommy is not so sure. "Major has many breeds in him. A bit of this. A bit of that...I don't think that bitsers are allowed in the dog show." But the exuberant Agapanthus is not to be stopped. Is there a way for her bitser to win the hearts of the judges despite all the rules?

This charming sequel to Agapanthus Hum and the Eyeglasses, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1999, will have you cheering to the very finish-for Agapanthus, for Major Bark, and for underdogs everywhere, especially the bitsers.
