Description of this Book

Pig was a pug, and I'm sorry to say, he would often tell lies just to get his own way. Pig the Pug tells lies to get what he wants and get Trevor the sausage dog in trouble. When Pig hatches a plan to get at the hidden treats in the back of the closet, his lies get Trevor thrown out of the house. Finally he's all alone with those treats. What he didn't expect was the bowling ball. Maybe this time Pig the Pug will learn his lesson.
