My Big Dog by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel. Merl is a cat. A typical cat, who owns his home and everything and everyone in it. Until one day, when his people bring home a golden retriever puppy. Suddenly, Merl’s world is turned upside down. He can’t hide from the puppy and can’t figure out a way to get rid of him either. So there’s only one thing left for Merl to do: run away from home. Running away turns out to be not so great after all. True, he may be rid of his new foe, the puppy, but now he has to put up with painted claws and froofy bows and being left out in the cold and rain. It doesn’t seem like a very happy life for a cat who once owned everything! Merl is unaware that he’s missed and loved by a certain dog that eventually finds Merl and returns him home. Maybe they can be friends after all!?! This book has adorable illustrations and can be enjoyed by families who are getting new pets or experiencing issues involving running away.
