Max Tate liked to laugh. So did his moms and his little sister, Grace. But Max’s family had not been laughing much since the new neighbors next door moved in with a yipping, yapping, yelping little dog named Blue.

Blue barked early every morning. Blue barked late every night. Blue barked at cats, and kids, and cars, and neighbors. Blue even barked at trashcans and mailboxes.
