Chip has dreamed about owning a dog since he was a baby. A dog would be his best friend, for he would teach it to sit, stay, fetch, and roll over. But Chip's parents refuse to buy him one. One night, Chip's dream reveals a deep truth about who Chip is. Chip doesn't need a dog; he is a dog! From then on, his life is changed--he takes himself for walks; teaches himself to sit, stay, and fetch; and makes plenty of neighborhood friends!
