A Universal Story
Two children, Dirk and Dawn, play with their neighbor’s large dog, named BIG DOG. A dog wish is placed deep into their minds and hearts.
Again and again, they plead with their dad and mom for their own dog at their own home, but the answer is always, “No!”
When the neighbor’s dog comes to their house for a two-day stay, Dirk and Dawn are delighted. They are filled with hope that the dog’s visit will turn the “No!” into a “Yes!”
Within minutes of BIG DOG’s arrival, troubles show up, too. His good nature is never in doubt, but his habits and actions do not help the children’s cause.
Their hope for their very own dog dims as the troubles mount, but they do not give up. One hour before BIG DOG is to return to his own house, he performs an extraordinary feat – a kind of miracle.
What troubles did BIG DOG cause? How did BIG DOG become a hero? Would Dad and Mom change their minds? Will the children’s hope for their own dog become a triumph?
