Weak and hairless, with his useless nose and blunt littleteeth, Romochka is ashamed of what a poor dog he makes. Butlearning how to be something else . . . that’s a skill a human canmaster. As Romochka grows and learns what it takes to be a dogin a loving clan, the tension between his dog self and his boyself increases.
