This book I am looking for is about a pound that has all different kinds of dogs in it waiting all day for their new master to come get them. As the day goes on one by one a person shows up that looks identical to one of the dogs in the pound and that dog gets to go. The book is from the perspective of one dog in particular and as every person shows up the dog says “ are you my master?” or something like that “Are you my guy?” or “is this my guy?” and each time it’s not his guy it’s another dogs guy.
And as the people show up one by one, as a kid, you KNOW what dog they are coming for because the person looks identical to the dog.
The day goes on and on and it’s finally dark, they are closing, and this one dog who is narrating is the only dog left. No one has come for him and he is all alone and very sad. Finally just as they are closed, HIS GUY, or HIS BOY, shows up and they are identical looking and the dog and the boy are overjoyed that they have found each other and he gets to go home with the boy.
It is driving me crazy that I can’t remember the name of this book or how to find it. I am 53 so it was probably written in the 1960s.
I’m not sure how to pay for this but Ill go back on the website and make sure to pay but please post this I promised my Mom that I would try to find it!!!
