Book: Dog Stories by Mish de Mut

Author: Irene Broni


Summary:  This book is written from the point of view of a clever and prolific dog named Mish de Mutt. He is a witty character who narrates his autobiography in a dozen or so short and down-to-earth stories.

Between naps, Mish (pronounced “Meesh”) tells his stories about running away, being stuck in the snow, and other adventures. Each time, he has the good fortune to be rescued.

Not knowing where he came from or who his parents were, Mish de Mutt doesn’t mind being a mutt at all. At the shelter, he was simply described as a “red-brown mixed terrier.”
