Once upon a time a dog was looking for a home. Not just any home – the perfect home, to be exact. The dog decided to travel the world, visiting different countries and seeing how other dogs live. On his travels, Dog meets a Newfoundland in Newfoundland, an English bulldog in England, a poodle in Paris, and many other breeds of dogs and learns about what they do and how they live. Sadly, none of the new places are what Dog had in mind.
Dog found the perfect home when he returned to Washington, D.C. where he learned of a special family seeking a pet to live in their big White House. For ages 5 – 8.
