Diego is a dog, but he has one of the toughest jobs in the world. Is he a ninja? Nope. Is he a superhero? Nope. Is he a king or a police officer or the president? Nope. Nope. Nope. Diego is a DAD. And that requires the patience and fortitude of all of these positions combined . . . as Diego–an adorable pug–demonstrates in this laugh-out-loud photographic picture book. Admonitions and chores may be somewhat different for dogs: “Stop chewing on the furniture!” “Don’t eat cat barf!” But Diego does everything out of love . . . and we get to see the objects of his affection at the end of the story: pug puppies!!
What kinds of things does Diego do to be a good dad? Why are these things important?
