E DOMINGUEZ

Santiago stays. He does not budge when offered a walk. He does not want to move at all. But all ends well.

Amazon Description:

Santiago stays. He does not budge when offered a walk. He does not budge when offered a treat. Not even a hamburger can lure this stubborn French bulldog away from his post, much to the disappointment of the little boy trying to engage him. When the boy’s frustration bubbles over into a yell, it wakes the baby and the reader realises whom it was that Santiago was guarding in the first place. This familiar theme of an attention-seeking older sibling paired with the comically and characteristically stubborn French bulldog makes for a humorous and charming tale. All ends well with the boy and his dog playing together with the baby in a final joyous scene.
