Catie Copley is a black Labrador retriever who lives an unusual life as Canine Ambassador at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston. Her job includes welcoming guests, taking them for walks, and helping Jim at his job as the hotel's Chief Concierge. Santol, who trained as a guide dog, just like Catie, is her canine counterpart at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Quebec City, Canada. Catie, a very lady-like dog, is surprised when, one day, a large, furry, black-and-white intruder snatches her toy lobster and runs away with it. She is taken aback, but once she gets to know the rambunctious Santol they become firm friends. When Jim drives Santol back to Canada, Catie is very excited to go too. This is Catie's first vacation and her first time in a strange city where they speak a different language. Santol introduces her to a famous goat, a friendly horse, a clumsy juggler, and intriguing new foods and smells. Catie finds that there is a lot of opportunity for adventure... maybe a little too much adventure. 

Catie and Santol explore Boston and Quebec from a dog's-eye view, which, come to think of it, approximates a child's-eye view. This is a small travel guide and an invitation. What fun to introduce a child to either of these historic cities. But that's not all. In this story, Catie gets into a little trouble – even good dogs do — so there's just enough suspense to keep young readers turning the pages to find out what happened next.  —Rebecca Rule, Nashua Telegraph
