Pretty good.I like books about funny animals. I like REAL funny animals. Meatball sure is a funny bulldog. This book was obviously funny, and also,I like all of the characters. A dog also got rescued in this book, and I like it when animals find a forever home and get rescued.
Disclaimer: My pet is a beautiful slobbering bulldog, with wrinkles and one big brown spot.

This book is amazing. I see this series get checked out a lot at the library, but I did not know much about it. A great middle grade read! Of course, all of the parts about Meatball, the lovable and loyal but unconventional dog are funny because he's so ridiculous. He snores a lot and slobbers. But he also protects Eric from his bullying older sisters and their evil cats!

I thought that this book was pretty good. It was a short read. It's about a boy named Eric who has always wanted a dog. His wish comes true when he finds a bulldog tied to the door of his mom's vet clinic. He takes the dog home and calls him his. But, Eric starts to have second thoughts about keeping the bulldog. Will Eric keep him, or will he drop him in the pound? Read this book to find out.
Such a good story.
I got this book as a strip cover from work, figuring that I should read at least a few more kids books - It wasn't bad. A bit hard to get into to, but that could be due to the younger reading style. It had a cute plot featuring a middle school boy, his bulldog and friends (and their dogs). The evil cats were kinda funny.
I liked rachel!
The book altogether was really great too!!!

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Tui? What kind of name is that? Is it short for something?

Nope. Among the many great things to come out of New Zealand (the Lord of the Rings movies, cats that paint, my mom) is a bird called the tui—not as well known as the kiwi, but a heck of a lot noisier!

I was born July 31 (same birthday as Harry Potter!) in Caracas, Venezuela, and lived in Asuncion, Paraguay
