Amazon Description

The Young Pups don't want to visit Grandpa—he is so boring, and only ever wants to talk about the olden days. They don't believe Grandpa was ever young or fun, so Grandpa sets out to prove them wrong, and show them that there is life in the old dog yet!

One Potato Review

Insolent pups: “Grandpa’s not himself. He’s barking, the old stick. It’s time he went into a home.” He’s also got dog breath, and tends to ramble too much about the old days (one of his flashbacks actually finds him in the trenches of World War I France), but don’t write off this geezer just yet. “I’ve had my moments,” he protests, and while his circus tricks seem to arrive from a bygone era, there’s something nevertheless refreshing about his determination to surprise. Spirited and frank. For many ages.
