This is the story of a brave puppy whose delight in life contributes to his own healing. It is a tale of going to the hospital to get well, and also a tale of friendship and its power to heal. It is a longing for community—doctors, nurses, friends and family—all working together to help their patient. This story will touch your heart and brighten your spirit. The gentle images will evoke dreams of childhood and a time of trust and protection.
