Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A masterpiece from the renowned Eva Ibbotson. <p>All Hal had ever wanted was a dog. "Never!" cries his mother. "Think of the mess, the scratch marks, the puddles on the floor." But on the morning of Hal's tenth birthday, the unbelievable happens. He's allowed to choose a puppy at Easy Pets, a rent-a-pet agency (a fact his parents keep from him). The moment he sees the odd-looking terrier, he knows he's found a friend for life. But no one tells Hal that Fleck must be returned and when Hal wakes up on Monday morning, Fleck is gone. If dog and boy are to stay together, they'll have to run away...</p> <p>From the renowned Eva Ibbotson comes her final novel, a tale laced with humor and full of heart, and stunning in its beauty and all things dog.</p>

When lonely, ten-year-old Hal learns that his wealthy but neglectful parents only rented Fleck, the dog he always wanted, he and new friend Pippa take Fleck and four other dogs from the rental agency on a trek from London to Scotland, where Hal's grandparents live.
