"Dolph was kicking cans the afternoon he found the puppies under the Cockleburr Street Kingdom of Heaven Church. Eight puppies guarded by a gotch-eared, half-blind mammy dog. Eight hungry puppies that nobody wanted -- nobody except Dolph and his younger sister, Myrtis. Together they plan and worry and bargain, take risks, make mistakes, work up sweat and blisters, discover their will and determination. And, in the end, in the most believable way, Dolph makes the unbelievable happen!"
