A high-spirited and lovable miniature Dachshund meets Rachel, the "little fish girl," as they begin their rollercoaster adventures together adjusting to seaside living on the coast of Rhode Island.

Who they meet along the way, and the relationships that follow will make you laugh out loud. Oscar's nemesis, "Lucinda," another tiny Dachshund who appears ever so sweet with her bejeweled collar and colorful bows, terrorizes the beachfront residents at every opportunity, including Oscar who just wants a playmate!

Read how Oscar's love of getting into places where he shouldn't, sends him and Rachel on an emergency trip to the vet's; and Rachel learns a very valuable lesson that she never forgets!

This poignant and entertaining book about a pint-size dog, Oscar, and Rachel, the girl studying the creatures of the sea, will make you chuckle and sometimes gasp... but mostly delight you! It will touch your heart in a way only stories about the astonishing connection between humans and animals can. It might even help you discover a better understanding of what it means to adopt a pet; or in this case...have a pet adopt "you," as Oscar did with Rachel on that fateful day.

In the back of the book, you will find a synopsis of heartrending animal stories of courage and loyalty. A short questionnaire is also included that will help you decide if adoption is the right path for you.
