Book ~ "Lily" (2021) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ The Petersons are headed to the beach! 

On their vacation at the Fair Harbor Inn, Charles meets Lily, an untrained English cream golden retriever puppy. Charles will need all the help he can get with this rambunctious pup. Will he be able to find her a perfect permanent new home?

Charles is in elementary school. His family, the Petersons, have a puppy named Buddy plus they foster dogs and help them find homes.

Charles and his family are headed to at B 'n B at the beach for a vacation. There they meet Lily, a golden retriever puppy, and her family. Lily is a rambunctious puppy and when her family goes home, they leave Lily behind in her crate in their room! The family that runs their B 'n B are too busy to keep the dog so Charles is determined to find her a home since his mom and dad say they can't keep her because they already have a puppy at home.

Though this book is a quick read and directed at elementary-aged children, I found it entertaining. There is a learning experience and a puppy tip at the end. It is written in third person perspective and first person from Lily's point of view. It is the 61st in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
