Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days Summary & Study Guide
Jefferson takes the family to the boardwalk where Greg can finally fulfill his wish to ride the Cranium Shaker. After he spends all of his money on carnival games, Greg is able to go on the ride. It proves too much for him and nearly makes him sick. Afterwards, Greg and Rowley harass some teenagers and later some smaller kids with a dollar bill prank that Rodrick taught Greg.
When Mr. Jefferson learns of their actions, he sends Greg home early from the vacation.
Greg clears the lawn individually, although he struggles over the areas covered in dog poop. Greg finishes the clearing of the lawn, but Mrs.
Canfield finds the service "lousy" and refuses to pay Greg the thirty dollars she promised, and Greg gets frustrated that Mrs. Canfield won't even drive him home.
Greg, tries to find other ways to pay that bill, and tries to contact Rowley about them, but Rowley was at the movies with his father, and Greg became very annoyed that Rowley did not tell him he was going to take the day off.
After Greg's fight, Greg's mother quickly gets to know about the conflict and attempts to make Greg happy. This, however does not please Greg, as his mother tries to make Greg happy in ways such as inviting Fregley over, a person Greg isn't fond of at all, and encouraging father-to-son bonding, something that also displeases Greg, the same amount if not more. Jefferson heard that Greg and Rowley had a huge falling-out.
Greg says that he's seen Rowley and his father together playing tennis and other stuff. The last time Greg and Frank had a father-son bonding, it ended up with Greg having to pull him out of Rappahannock Creek. For Greg's birthday, all of his relatives come over.
Greg is also frustrated that his relatives have not given him a single gift that he wanted and received all gifts he doesn't like very much, such as books he doesn't read and clothes he doesn't really need.
Greg also gets a " Ladybug " cell phone but it is far from what he expected, as he views the Ladybug cellphone as junk and not a "real" cellphone because the Ladybug only allows him to call home and Greg goes to the next room to cut the cake, but becomes even more upset when Uncle Joe's dog, Killer eats his cake and vomits it in front of Greg, thus making his birthday a bit of a disappointment all around.
After Greg's birthday, Greg's mother allows Rodrick and Greg to each get a fish for a pet, to make Greg feel a bit better after Killer ate Greg's cake. Greg picks out an angelfish and Rodrick decides on a fish, because it is labeled "aggressive.
When the family goes to the Slipslide Water Park , it begins to rain and then they leave.
Susan had a headache so she lay down in the back. When they got to a gas station, Greg's mom left the car to go to the bathroom and the Heffleys forgot about her until they came home. After some thinking, they went back to the gas station where they stopped for gas, where Susan was there. Afterward, Rodrick's aggressive fish ate Greg's Angelfish.
Greg felt bad about his dead fish. There, Frank tells of how his dog named Nutty ran away to a butterfly farm. Greg's grandfather reveals that he had actually accidentally ran over the dog in the driveway.
Greg's father takes off in a state of anger, and then downloads a dog. Manny , Rodrick and Greg try to give the dog a proper name, but Manny can only thing of Elephant or Zebra aka Zeb, Rodrick wants to name the dog Turtle or "Turd" for short and Greg wants to name him Shredder or Ripjaw as he thinks those names are cool, but Susan thinks they are too violent and names the dog "Sweetheart" and shortens it to " Sweetie ", to Greg's dismay, as Greg views that the dog is actually male not female and thinks the name is for girls.
Frank sends Rodrick to the mall to download a dog bowl with Sweetie's name printed on it but Rodrick comes back with Sweetie's name misspelled "Sweaty".
Even though Greg wanted a dog for a long time, he quickly becomes annoyed at Sweetie, who drools on his pillow, sleeps on his bed, interrupts his privacy in the bathroom and won't stop barking at the television unless a certain advertisement with gophers comes on. Sweetie finally kisses Frank, Greg thinks it is because Frank had potato chips on his breath.

They go to the picnic area where they hand out free watermelon, which Greg also has a fear of because Rodrick said a watermelon will grow in his stomach if he swallows the seeds, which is NOT true.

However, the fireworks at the country club started then. Greg also finds a Back To School advertisement in the newspaper leaving him concerned and put out about a near-future all day shopping trip with his mom.

Greg later tries to impress Heather Hills, but he failed. When someone randomly vomited under Heather's chair, there was Heather waiting for Greg to do something but that was way ahead of what Greg thought he was supposed to do.
Greg never went to see Heather again.Not great but not bad by any stretch of the imagination. Th This hilariously sharp comic book is written from the perspective of 11 year-old Greg, whose canny jokes and observations have become a series of popular books. Heffley is something we can very much And Dog Days they are.
