Best book of diary of a wimpy kid collection. Probably the best bookever. Dog Days starts with Greg Heffley and Rowley Jefferson going to Rowley's country club after school closes for the summer, but Greg is kicked out, because he complains of even the smallest predicaments (such as the lack of a tiny umbrella in his cocktail).
Greg and Rowley decide to do a lawn care service called the "V.I.P. Lawn Care Service". Unfortunately, the job is a fiasco when the boys have never used a lawn mower before.
Greg's birthday comes, and he wants money. During the party, Susan confiscates said money to pay off Rowley's dad's smoothie bill from the country club. Greg also gets a Ladybug, a cell phone that can only make emergency calls and home calls.
Greg, Rodrick, and his mom go to the local pet store. Greg gets an angel fish but Rodrick, on the other hand, gets a pet pirahna which he doesn't take care of. After a trip to the waterpark, Greg finds that the piranha ate his angelfish while they were gone, upsetting Greg. Then Heffley get's a new dog, Sweetie, which causes significant problems for Greg's summer.Greg and his mom meet Rowley's family in a supermarket. Rowley's mom invites Greg to the beach,which his mom agrees to, with disastrous results. Greg is afraid that his dad is going to sell him to an orphanage, and he calls the police with his Ladybug phone. After a long talk with the police, Frank gives the cops the tickets for a baseball game, and it turns out that Frank was giving Sweetie to Gramma.
After losing a "video game tournament" to Rowley, Greg is upset, but sees pictures of the summer that mom took and rethinks his summer. Perhaps all he need was a little nudge in the world after the summer adventure. Greg is now satisfied on how this crazy summer ended. The first picture shows Greg and some other boys who's moms think that they spend to much time playing video games in stead of "funner things". The 2nd picture shows Greg reading and getting his hair cut at bombshells beauty salon. The 3rd shows Greg looking out the window and sees Fregley is naked.Nice pictures arent they?
