The Perfect Dog
Also available: The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
Inspired by New York Times best-selling author John O’Hurley’s book The Perfect Dog, Sam, a twelve-year-old perfectionist, searches for a flawless dog to enter in the town’s dog contest. Unable to find a canine that measures up, Sam must resort to training the family dog, Max, who is less than eager to obey commands.
In the end, Sam and Max learn that there is no such thing as perfect, but there is such a thing as being perfect for each other.
