Little River Dog is the story of an 8-year old girl who, while walking out on the dock, discovers a little dog stranded in the water. She rescues the little poodle; and though she desperately wants to keep the dog, she and her mother search for the owner. In the process she discovers that real joy doesn’t always come from getting what you want but, rather, from doing the right thing.
