I have the wrinkles, smashed face, and curly tail of a pug, but I have an appetite for adventure. I am always searching for a new mystery to solve, cat to chase, or pillow to steal.
After I gathered acorns for my squirrel friend Squeaks, my family knew it was time to put my adventures into a book. The thirteen short stories in this book connect and build to create an exciting chapter book for young pug lovers (ages 7 and up).
The best part is my adventures don’t stop with this book-they continue in the second and third books of the series!

For the next several days, Vacuum stays quiet in the closet. She doesn’t move an inch when I retrieve my milk-bones, so I stop shaking when I walk into the closet.
My shakes return when Hannah moves Vacuum from the closet and pulls the cord out. I know trouble is coming.
Hannah and Vacuum move next to the living room couch. Hannah pulls a tube out from Vacuum and attaches an arm.
Wait a minute. Where did the arm come from?
I bark at Hannah, trying to warn her this is a bad idea. She ignores me.
My fear rises when I hear the terrible sound. Vacuum propels into motion. The tube starts swinging as Hannah drags the arm along the couch. A million ideas run through my head of how Vacuum will hurt Hannah. I need to save Hannah.
Vacuum approaches my spot on the other end of the couch. The arm continues to sweep back and forth. As the arm approaches, I notice the place where the arm connects into the tube. Her weak spot is the connection.
I dart for it and wrap my mouth around the tube. My small jaws barely fit around it, but I pull as hard as I can. Nothing moves. I hear Hannah yelling in the background, but I can’t make out any of the words. The end of the arm must have attacked her. I put every last ounce of strength into the next yank. The arm bursts free from the tube.
I did it!
With the arm in my mouth, I bolt downstairs to the basement. I carry the arm into the back corner closet. I drop it on the floor, use my head to close the door and run back upstairs.
I hear no sound in the living room. I hope Hannah is safe. I creep around the corner. Vacuum is out of sight, but Hannah glares at me.
“Where did you put it?” Hannah asks. I stare at her blankly.
Doesn’t she understand that I saved her life?
“Zelda, the Vacuum isn’t going to hurt you,” Hannah says.
There’s no way that Vacuum can hurt me because I destroyed her arm. I smile and let my tongue hang out. Vacuum can’t stop this stubborn, flat-faced, and wrinkly pug.
