This is a story about Sam, who really really wants a puppy. There's nothing more exciting than your first pet, but it's a big responsibility too.

Hi! I'm Dr Lisa Chimes.

I work as an emergency vet at an animal hospital. You might have seen me on TV in Bondi Vet. I have a little boy called Hudson and we have two gorgeous dogs, Nelson and Lucas.

This is a story about Sam, who really really wants a puppy. There's nothing more exciting than your first pet, but it's a big responsibility too.

Fall in love with Sam and Ralph as they discover that special relationship between a child and a puppy. And learn everything you need to know about caring for a dog, from how to train a puppy to keeping your pet healthy and happy.

Look out for My First Kitten too!
