From one of Australia's most-loved and prolific authors comes a funny and endearing tale about a boy called Eric and his dog Ugly.

At almost ten years of age, Eric is now the responsible owner of his dog Ugly. But when Ugly is involved in a series of mishaps including the theft of a roast chook and a bedroom decorated with duck poo, it is clear Eric needs to do something to keep his dog out of trouble. Luckily, Eric knows exactly how to solve the problem ... Ugly needs a job.
But how can Eric find a job for a dog, even if his dog is a genius?

Humorous and engaging, My Dog Gets a Job will appeal to pet lovers of all ages.
