This book is about perseverance. Doggie sits in the window of Monsieur Albert’s pet shop in Montreal wishing someone would come and take him home.

Discussion Topics

Before Reading

  • Review the word ‘perseverance’. Explain that this story is about a little dog that lives in a pet store who never gives up on his dream to be adopted.
  • Ask the students if they have ever been to a pet store and how they think the pets might be feeling in their cages.

During Reading

  • When Mademoiselle Madeleine initially walks into the pet store, she doesn’t notice Doggie in the window. Ask the students why they think the lady didn’t notice Doggie. (Examples: distracted, busy, hurrying, not looking in his direction).
  • Doggie saw Mademoiselle Madeleine, who was a seamstress, making beautiful things at her sewing machine. Doggie had never seen anything so lovely and he thought that he’d love to be a seamstress one day. Ask the students if there is someone they admire and hope to be like one day. (Examples: hockey player, teacher, painter, driver, doctor).
  • Ask the students why Mademosielle Madeleine said that Doggie was an ‘odd looking’ kitten when he was dressed up. What was odd about him?
  • Ask the students a series of prediction questions:
    • Doggie made himself a goldfish suit and when the lady came, he dove into the Aquarium. Why would Doggie do that? (Read the page that explains that Doggie wanted Mademoiselle Madeleine to notice him.)
    • Have the students guess what Doggie might do next. What kind of costume do you think Doggie will make next? (Read the next page that describes Doggie creating a lizard outfit.)
    • Is that the end of Doggie’s creations or do you think Doggie will make another outfit? (Read the next page that describes Doggie creating a lizard outfit.)
    • How do you think Mademoiselle Madeleine will react to Doggie? (Mademoiselle Madeleine doesn’t want another seamstress.)

After Reading

  • Ask the students why we knew Doggie was happy in the end. (Example: tail wagging). What body language do people use to show they are excited?
  • Ask the students how Doggie showed perseverance.
  • Ask the students what the result was when Doggie persevered.
  • Reinforce the concept that we should never give up. We should always keep trying very hard to reach our goals. For Doggie, his goal was to get Mademoiselle Madeleine to adopt him.
