Guinea Dog 2 by Patrick Jennings
Rufus's loveable guinea pig, Fido (remember she acts just like a dog), is back in their next adventure. The story begins where the first one left off with Rufus returning to school after he broke his foot while on a family picnic and Fido saved him by getting help. Rufus has become quite the celebrity (much thanks goes to his friend Murphy for this) and he is not enjoying his new found fame. Everyone wants a guinea pig now that acts just like Fido, especially the bully Dmitri. Lurena is still hanging around (Rufus is not thrilled with her, because well, she's a GIRL!), and she notices that Fido is getting fat. Rufus shrugs it off and says it's because Fido hasn't been exercised as much due to Rufus's broken foot and too many table scraps. The attention at school is getting too much for Rufus and he decides to "untrain" Fido from being a dog. Just after he starts this, Fido disappears. Rufus is frantic and enlists the help of Murphy, Lurena, mom and dad to help him find her. Has Fido run away? Is she alive? Was she dognapped? You'll have to read the rest of the story to find out. A great story about accepting people (or animals) for who they are, not for how we wished they would be. This is a fun read that everyone will enjoy.
