Paige | 794 comments A box full of puppies was given away or sold to a bunch of different people with different needs for dogs. One went to a fireman and one went to a little boy. I can't remember who else took one. I read it in the 1980s.

Whatever Happens to Puppies?


Paige | 794 comments Nope. The puppies were all part of one litter. One person was giving them all away/selling them. They had different personalities/traits, and the people who got a puppy stated how that particular puppy would be good for them. Thanks though.


Paige | 794 comments Nope. The mama dog never makes an appearance at all. Thanks though.

Rainbowheart | 21140 comments The summary doesn't mention the mother dog. Sometimes covers can be deceiving. I'll keep looking, though.

When in the '80s did you read it?


Paige | 794 comments A summary I read elsewhere for that one mentions the mother dog by name- Daisy.

I'm not sure when in the 80's I read it, but it certainly could have dated from before that decade.

I second this! Absolutely. Wow, that takes me back. :D

Each person that comes by for a dog says why they will take it (cops, help me catch bad guys; hard of hearing, will help me when someone knocks on the door; grocer, will keep rats away from cheese). Also has the fireman and boy you mentioned.
