Such a delightful and touching book. When a shy brown puppy appears at her gate , the old woman does not want to be too friendly for fear it will stay and she doesn't want to outlive the puppy like she has all her old friends. She tells it to go home but the puppy has other ideas and this is the heartwarming story of what happens .
