All it took for a tiny, no-name pup from the pound was someone to believe in him - and save him from death row - and an internet sensation was born. With his extremely good looks and pawfect cheekbones, Pikelet now lives the charmed life in inner-city Sydney, a foster brother to an extraordinary number of other pooches and pups, as well as an unexpected pair of ducklings and one larger-than-life pig. With his signature style and good humour, Pikelet shares the highs and lows of pet rescue and foster care, and will show you that a dog's life is the only life, after all. Illustrated throughout with iconic photos from his social media as well as never-before-seen snapshots from Life of Pikelet HQ, Pikelet's memoir is as unique as the dog himself. 'Go grab yourself a cuppa, find a comfy spot on your couch and settle in. The story that I'm about to share with you is the very extraordinary life of me, Pikelet Butterwiggle Stoll.'
