Always on the go, to work and to school, and shopping on the weekends, the Gustin family fill their lives with things more important than their little brown dog. So Boy spends most days alone, in the fenced backyard, feeling vaguely unloved and growing fat- until the day he decides to dig himself out. With sensitivity and skill, Susan Boase reminds us that every dog deserves his day- and perhaps, if we are truly fortunate, at day's end, we will find companionship and love.

(The neighbors haven’t bothered to look for their brown dog, and don’t even recognize the white dog as theirs when they see him.) The story is rather long and the characters’ emotions are told rather than shown, but the genuine need and love between the widower and the dog are touching nonetheless.
