A fun, heartwarming series about the puppies that train to become Guide Dogs and the families who help raise them.

A fun, heartwarming series about the puppies that train to become Guide Dogs and the families who help raise them.
Lachie Byrnes is proud to be helping raise Meg, a budding Guide Dog. After living with the Byrnes family for a few months, Meg has just started puppy preschool!

Meg is very good at obeying commands – except sometimes sit and stay! But after a big day of training and activities, Meg becomes sick and has to be rushed to the Guide Dogs vet surgery. Lachie is determined to use his detective skills to find out what’s wrong with his beloved puppy.


All three tales would make satisfying reading for primary aged students. They are easy to follow with clear type and appealing doggy covers. Each one includes information about the work of Guide Dogs Australia and the requirements of Puppy Raising families.
