Chip is dog-crazy. All he ever thinks about is dogs. All he ever talks about is dogs. If Chip had a dog he would teach it to sit stay, fetch, and rollover. He would love it, and it would be his best friend. But Chip's parents do not want a dog. His mother is a "cat person," and his father has the usual concerns. Poor Chip. He resigns himself to his sad fate, until one night he dreams up the perfect solution to his dog problem.
