The challenge for heart-broken Angel, comes in the form of an Afghan hound named Shazam. Heeling, staying, and standing at attention, are interrupted every so often by a few casual, non-descript dates. The only ""gripping"" situation occurs when Angel discovers that her old beau, Randy, is training his boxer in the same obedience class with Angel. But Angel is the better trainer, and as Shazam beats out the ill-tempered boxer, Angel feels she has gotten even with and triumphed over the boy who dropped her. A silly, unrealistic story which moves along at a dog's pace. In a class with The Social Swim, (1962, p. 187, J-65) another book by the same author.
