This is the story of a Good Dog. He has a mysterious past, which he can't remember, but now he's a Seeing-Eye Dog with an owner who thinks as highly about the dog as the dog thinks about him. When the infant next door is kidnapped, as a Good Dog, Goldie the Black Lab (his blind owner named him before he found out the dog was a black one) knows it's his duty to save the child. He had been trained, after all, by a policeman and his excellent German Shepherd, Badge, so he knew all about how doing your duty made you a Good Dog. During his search for the child, we meet the other animals in Goldy's life, especially Medusa, the rich, pure-bred, snotty cat, and the afore-mentioned Badge, but also strays and vagabonds...the huge Great Pyrenees who is completely crazy, the seldom-sober racing Greyhound, Scrounger, who broke his leg during a race but managed to get away before he could be "put down" and Bottlerocket, the vicious white Screech Owl, to name just the main animals. There are also, of course, humans in this story. Goldy's owner, and the local dog catcher (who deserves every bad thing you ever heard about dog catchers), and the child whose kidnapping starts the whole story are the main humans.
There is some mystery about Goldy's origins, and there's a bad dog inside him that comes out when he has to fight. There are hints about his past, and I sure hope there's another book after this one so I can learn more about him.
The ending is both happy and sad. He is, in the end, a VERY good dog. Medusa the cat isn't so snotty after all and becomes his friend, and a great wrong is put partly right. This is a wonderful book. Schedule time to read it all at once because you won't want to put it down until you see how it comes out. The end of the book says: End of Chapter One, which gives me hope that the author has written another book. You people read now. I'll start looking for the next chapter.
