Synopsis

Truelove's wet, lovable nose is out of joint. The cause? A new baby has arrived in the house. Truelove tries his best to attract his owners' attention, but finally gives up and leaves home. Soon he falls into bad company and is forced to return shamefaced. His owners are delighted to see him — and his slightly dodgy new friends, of course.

Aphorisms about love are illustrated by events in the little dog's life — sometimes ironic, sometimes sincere, but always hilarious.
