Rover and the Dog Hotel by Uncle Amos is the story of a dog, Rover, who cooks, cleans, and plays video games. When Rover's family goes on a holiday to Bermuda, they leave him behind at a dog hotel because he cannot travel in an airplane. He makes new friends at the dog hotel and starts enjoying his life there. But Rover's family is missing him because they are so used to Rover doing everything for them. When they return home early from their vacation, they find a noticeable change in Rover's behavior. Will Rover stay at the dog hotel or will he go with his family?
