The World of Dogs was run with great efficiency. There were machines for every kind of task. And the most brilliant was the one that dealt with all the business that a dog might leave behind. But there are many different kinds of dog and one machine could not accommodate them all. And so begins a story about celebrating our differences - a joyous little treasure for the whole family to share.
