In this heartwarming children's book about dogs, embark on an unforgettable journey with Gammy and Tyke, a stray puppy who appears one morning in her backyard. Gammy's heart is filled with compassion when she can't locate the puppy's owner, and she decides to take him in, giving him the name Tyke.

As the days pass, Tyke quickly transforms from a tiny pup into an unexpectedly large and rambunctious good dog. Gammy finds herself facing a challenge she hadn't anticipated - caring for a dog much larger than she can handle on her own.

With a heavy heart, Gammy makes the difficult decision that she must find a new home for Tyke, where he can receive the care and attention he needs. The thought of parting with her beloved companion weighs on her, and she grapples with the emotional turmoil of saying goodbye to a dog.

Just when Gammy is at her most vulnerable, a sudden and dangerous event rocks their world. In the face of this unexpected crisis, Tyke rises to the occasion, revealing his true character and the incredible bond he shares with Gammy. In the blink of an eye, Tyke transforms from a large dog into a brave dog and unexpected hero.

Tyke is a tale of compassion, bravery, and the unbreakable connection between humans and their furry friends. This beautifully illustrated dog picture book for children will captivate young readers as they follow Gammy and Tyke's extraordinary journey, teaching them the timeless lesson that even the unlikeliest of heroes can emerge when we need them most.
