Book Description
The memoirs of Australia's premiere rescue dog and foster bro extraordinaire, Pikelet Butterwiggle Stoll. Once a dog without a name on death row (albeit one with extremely good looks and pawfect cheekbones), Pikelet now lives a charmed life in inner-city Sydney with his beloved Ma and Pa, big little brother Patty Cakes and Spinster Sisters Betty and Blanche. How did he go from being a tiny no-name pup with developmental deformities to one of Australia's most recognisable fur faces, with a massive online 'pack' on social media? It all started when someone took a chance on him and saved him from his fate at the pound. Today, Pikelet and his family are proud advocates of pet rescue and 'Adopt, don't shop'. In the four years since Pikelet celebrated his own 'Gotcha Day', he has been foster brother to an extraordinary number of dogs and pups, as well as an unexpected pair of ducklings and one larger-than-life pig. Despite all the hashtags and selfies Pikelet knows how to keep it real, and he documents the highs and lows of pet rescue and foster care, which all pet owners and animal lovers will relate to.

Book Description
"Cora Bellamy is a woman who thrives on organization. She's successfully run her own dog training business for years, perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life. She's given everything to her business, and her lack of social life (or slobber-free clothes) has been completely worth it. But all that changes when she meets Charlie Gill, the hottest client she's ever had. The only problem? Charlie's taken. Luckily, Cora has a new friend--the sweet, lovably geeky Eli Crawford. More loyal than a retriever, he's always there to help Cora with her problems, including her love life. That's why she's shocked to realize that even as things start heating up with Charlie, there might just be a more-than-friends spark between her and Eli, too. As Cora's life gets more tangled up than a dogwalker's leashes--and as she prepares to audition for a dog-training TV show that may irrevocably change her entire life--she has to figure things out before it all goes straight to the dogs."--
