ere's a delightful story in cartoon format, all about a good dog, Rosie, who's also a lonely dog, though she does enjoy walks with her owner, George.
hen George realizes that Rosie needs company, he takes her to the dog park - but she's overwhelmed '
and a little bit afraid
' of too many strange dogs - especially Maurice with his stuffed bunny, and yippy Fifi with her sparkly collar.
hen big Maurice plays too roughly with small Fifi, Rosie has to intervene. But they do eventually figure out how to be friends ... and Rosie becomes a regular at the dog park.
t's a cute tale that emphasizes how strong friendships can be built despite differences, and that they take some effort.
