Buster's a therapy dog who needs to take matters into his own paws to help a boy understand his own anxiety even if it means breaking a few rules.

Buster's in big trouble. He's been dragged to Dog Court for breaking one of the most sacred of all dog rules: Never, ever talk to a human, or let a human know how smart you really are.

But he swears he had a good reason! The boy he's been taking care of, Tonio, needed his help in a big way. You see, Tonio is afraid all the time -- afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, afraid of making a fool of himself or (even worse) hurting someone else's feelings. His doctor thinks having a therapy dog will help his anxiety -- and Buster wants to help. He really wants to help. Even if it means breaking the rules

About the Author

Caleb Zane Huett is a tabletop gamemaster, former bookseller, and definitely not a dog with a pen name. He’s a graduate of the University of Georgia, and he’s really good at trading card games. Eight different dogs have protected him throughout the years, and he currently has two cats who are furious they weren’t featured in this book. You can find him at calebzanehuett.com.
