Synopsis

Dog was a dog and that's what everyone called him-Dog. Just . . . Dog. But Dog is sure he deserves a more exciting name, and he sets out to prove it, much to the amusement of a cat named Midnight. In this warm and reassuring story, Dog reminds us all of the importance of being happy with who we are.
