Every Dog in the Neighborhood

by Philip C. Stead

  Louis wants a dog, but his Grandma insists, “There are enough dogs in the neighborhood already.”  But how many dogs are in the neighborhood?  Surely a sternly worded letter to City Hall will clear this up.  When it turns out that City Hall doesn’t keep an official count of this essential demographic, Louis and Grandma do their civic duty and take matters into their own hands.  Together they meet all sorts of dogs with hilarious names and personalities.  When they’re done, Louis’s grandmother is sure he’s missed one particualryly lovable dog, a mutt named Baklava in need of a new home.
