One day Mr. Putter gives Mrs. Teaberry some kiwis. She has an accident and can't walk for a week. She asks Mr. Putter to take her dog, Zeke, for his walks. Mr. Putter keeps asking her if Zeke is okay and she says yes. Zeke is a nightmare. He tugs on Mr. Putter and Tabby through yards and creeks and houses that they have never been through before. At the end, there is a party and Tabby, Zeke, Mr. Putter, and Mrs. Teaberry have a great time.
Our favorite part of the story is when Zeke chases the dogs because it is funny. Our favorite character is Tabby because he is cute and striped. This story relates to our lives because we have awesome pets. The pictures help tell what the words mean.
We think you should read this amazing story because it is funny and will make you laugh.
