Yes, I know that this is the second book in the series. The first was on my laptop that crashed and got erased, and I only printed one copy of it. Currently, the copy is not at my disposal.

Here is a synopsis of the first one, just to clarify problems:

Ramsey is a young Tibetan Spaniel. He lives on the streets of New York City. He gets captured by the city's repairman, Richard, who is evil-tempered and hates animals. Ramsey charges into a dark alley and escapes Richard. Richard, on the other hand, is restrained.
Ramsey then gets kidnapped by an old lady who thinks he is her long lost pet. This lady's name is Helga. He gets taken to her house. He doesn't like it there, and after a particularly bad dinner, he decides he's had it. He formulates an escape plan.
Ramsey soon escapes with no problem, and is walking along when is attacked by Richard. Richard then gets ambushed by a flying pan, allowing Ramsey to escape. Ramsey soon finds out that his rescuer, by the name of Dowwle (pronounced as in dowel wood) is his brother. They spend a lot of time together. But then, Helga finds them and captures them again. This time, she's annoyed.
They are thrown into her house, but then formulate another plan to to escape, but this time, she catches them and calls the dog catcher. By now, they are back home, safe, but are now being tracked by the dog catcher.

So yeah. That's the synopsis. Hoped this cleared up any confusion. If anyone has any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them.

Ramsey II
 
Chapter I
Captured!
Ramsey wandered throughout the city. He was hungry; exceedingly hungry! Suddenly, he spied a banana. Happily, he skipped over (in the dog way) and just as he was a foot near, a net suddenly came out of nowhere. Ramsey was trapped!
“I was hired to capture you, ye sewer rat!” came a voice. Ramsey started. There was something familiar about that voice. Ramsey looked up in horror. Richard the smith was hulking over Ramsey. “You think I’m still the repairer, no! That ship is sailed! I’m the new - Dog Catcher!”  Ramsey finished the sentence for him. Richard hauled Ramsey into his dog-catching truck and Ramsey was whisked off to the Pound.
 
Chapter II
A Surprising Sight
Ramsey was thrown into a large cage with a lot of dogs who - Ramsey presumed – had also been captured by the foul Dog Catcher. He saw (with a little surprise) his brother Dowwle. He also saw a big black Labrador. It looked pretty mean. He also saw a white Schnauzer. They were all asleep.
Dowwle, is that you? Ramsey queried. Dowwle jerked awake and leapt on Ramsey, pinning him to the ground. Dowwle…. it’s me!  Ramsey said. Oops! Dowwle said. What was that for? Ramsey demanded. Sorry, I guess I’ve just become so paranoid being locked up for two days. Dowwle responded.
Who are the others? Ramsey asked. Oh, the white one is Schnapps, and the black one is Howdy. They’re both pretty smart but Schnapps can’t really hear properly. That’s how he got locked up; not listening to his master. And I suppose you want to know how Howdy got captured? Yeah, sure Ramsey said. Bad luck Dowwle said. I guess Richard was just being an imbecile, anyway there was Howdy, going to the bathroom and next thing she knows, she’s in the pound!
 Ramsey was very surprised! He had never heard of an unnecessary dog-capture. He concluded that Richard just enjoyed tormenting things. Ramsey also wondered how nice the other dogs were, how Dowwle got captured, and if Dowwle would ask him how he got captured. He turned this thought on his brother.
The other dogs are really nice and really smart. I got captured because I was causing mayhem at my arch-rivals house, and how did you get captured? I thought you tried to stay out of sight. Dowwle rounded off the answer non-stop without taking a breath. I was just running across the street toward a half-eaten banana and wham! A net comes over me and Richard tells me he’s not the repair man anymore but he’s the new Dog-catcher! He throws me in his truck and here I am; stuck behind a chain-linked fence!
Dowwle considered then said Ramsey I don’t know why Richard was promoted. And I have some good news and some bad news.
Good news Ramsey responded. The good news is that Schnapps, Howdy, and I and now of course, you, are formulating an escape plan. And the bad news is that if you don’t get picked up by a new owner in two weeks, the Pound puts you to sleep!
Ramsey was so shocked. He knew that getting put to sleep meant getting a needle with a killing liquid injected into your body to make you die. He fainted.
Ramsey, Ramsey! Can you hear me? But there was no reply.
 
Chapter III
New Friends
Ramsey woke with a start. An icy liquid had splashed over him. Dowwle had seemingly knocked over the water bucket and it had hit Ramsey.
When he looked up, he was surprised to see Dowwle, Howdy, and Schnapps looking at him. What happened? Ramsey asked. You fainted. I’ve been trying to wake you for almost an hour. I woke the others. Howdy knocked over the bucket, not me, I’m not strong enough, and Schnapps was too tired. Dowwle responded.
Why did you tell him such a dreadful thing, Dowwle, huh? Howdy said furiously. Howdy’s voice was peculiarly female. I had to warn him! Dowwle snarled. And without warning, he pounced! Howdy threw him off and sat there licking a paw as though nothing had happened. Then Dowwle jumped on her again. They grappled until they were too tired to fight. Dowwle sank to the ground. That’s…. what it’s like in the…. Pound. Dowwle panted. Let’s just get on with the wretched plan! Schnapps said impatiently. Yeah!  Ramsey and Howdy said fiercely.They got into a circle and Dowwle spoke. Ok, here’s what we’re gonna do….
 
Chapter IV
Phase One of Escape
Phase one Dowwle said to the group. They were all exited. Here was the day they were going to be one step closer to escaping.
I need the food! Ah, here it comes now! Schnapps said. Sure enough, a big bowl of food was making its way in the arms of Richard. He set it down roughly and the other dogs bounded forward but Schnapps just walked through as though none of the dogs were there. It was rather stale and bad tasting but he downed it all in three swallows. The other dogs grumbled with disappointment as their food had all been eaten so quickly.
Then he went up to the front of the Pound and took a dump in the part beside the gate. The stench was unbearable! All the other dogs grimaced and threw up.
Richard came and said “Crikey, what did you guys do?” All the other dogs started to bark. Richard got on a gas mask and bent down to clean it up.
Howdy snuck up on Richard and with one quick movement, grabbed the keys dangling from the back of Richard’s belt. She came up to the back of the room and hung up the keys on an unused hook. Richard hadn’t noticed a thing! Ramsey, Dowwle, and Schnapps all cried Bravo, Howdy! Nice stealth!
No need to say that, he was just too distracted. Howdy said with mirth.Richard looked up with a disgusted look on his face. He left while Ramsey, Schnapps, Howdy, and Dowwle were savoring their victory.
 
 
 
Chapter V
Failure
Phase two Dowwle said the next day. They were all trembling with excitement. They were getting out today. One of the keys that Howdy had stolen was a knife. Dowwle, who was good with tools, had cut a hole large enough for a dog to slip through. The other dogs had noticed their behavior and asked what they were doing. But they said it was a surprise. Schnapps got through and entered the office. He charged the trash can and knocked it cleanly over. The guard noticed Schnapps and picked up a needle with green liquid. Oh MAN! Schnapps thought. Meanwhile, the other dogs were quietly escaping! But Richard’s net had found the dogs. They were thrown into solitary confinement. “You’ll all get put to sleep tomorrow!” Richard roared furiously. But there’s still Schnapps! Ramsey thought with relief.
Dowwle was distraught. This is my entire entire fault! I came up with this entire scheme! Dowwle berated himself until midnight where then he fell into a fitful sleep. Ramsey too felt miserable. They were all going to be put to sleep one way or another. Then something happened that heightened everyone’s mood. Schnapps turned up at midnight. He was carrying the stolen keys. He unlocked the door and dogs stealthily climbed out. Thanks Schnapps! Dowwle, Ramsey and Howdy all said to Schnapps. Then Schnapps, Dowwle, Howdy and Ramsey all gathered around and planned their escape.
 
Chapter VI
Escape at Last
The dogs were gathered in the pound cell. They were all nervous. What would happen if they failed? They would be put to sleep the instant they were found. Richard now patrolled the area around Ramsey’s, Dowwle’s Howdy’s and Schnapps’ pound cell with a belt of shot needles filled with poison; so as to catch the dogs at it. Schnapps, Dowwle, Howdy and Ramsey all grouped together.
Dowwle said All right dogs. This is a matter of speed and stealth! When Richard sees us grouped around, he’ll charge inside and leave the gate open. Howdy, you’re the biggest dog so you’ll have to go around that big bulk! Ramsey, Schnapps, you follow me between Richard’s pants. He has a big bulk and isn’t really able to bend down that far and we are fast. Ready? The other dogs shouted yes! The plan worked! Richard saw the dogs grouped around and he loosed a savage war cry. The dogs all prepared themselves. Ready, set RUN! Dowwle, Ramsey, Schnapps and Howdy bolted! The other dogs followed. They ran through the door and out into the sunlight! They were free at last!
Chapter VII
Arrangements
It was night. The dogs were gathered around the in an alleyway. Dowwle, Schnapps, Howdy and Ramsey were all making arrangements to invade the grocery store. Till next week? Dowwle asked. Yepo! Ramsey, Schnapps and Howdy said. As Ramsey settled into bed, he thought how good it felt to be free.
