Stick-Dog-book-2-jacketYou probably are thinking that my name is the exact opposite of what I look like. Well, it just reflects my personality.

I’m very eccentric and a bit of a tom-boy. I like to do the opposite of what you are supposed to do. As you can see, I’m not a mainstream dog and I’m proud of it.

I’m sometimes a little impulsive and don’t listen to everything Stick-Dog says, meaning I usually mess up his plans. He’s always nice to me though, even when I make a mistake.

I am an amazing jumper and they call me SUPER BALL! I was once a guard dog in a mall, but my love for food ruined my career. Well, when some food is in front of me I just can’t resist eating it!

Right now I’m on a mission to get my paws on some hot dogs!
