'Megan tried to get on my knee. She tried her best, but her bad legs wouldn't cooperate. Smiling at her efforts, I picked her up. She immediately stretched up and started licking my face...'
Piper has to get out more. And what better than the local dog rehoming centre? Against her wishes, Piper is signed up as a volunteer, and soon realises how amazing it is.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes greet her...but she is drawn to one particular pup. Megan, the chocolate labrador puppy who needs urgent surgery to walk properly.
Piper soon realises how much she needs the puppy - as well as the quirky manager, the kind receptionist and a boy called Michael.
A touching story of a girl and her dog, and how, together, they got through it all.
