Piper is determined to win, but teaching tricks to her dog seems nearly impossible. Bruna is simply unteachable! Or is she? Join Piper as she embarks on new and exciting adventures! Piper is a spunky heroine with lots of spirit--she's both kindhearted and bossy as she tries to find her place in the world as the middle sister.
