This boy's dog is inconvenient when he's waking up, having breakfast, getting dressed ... and even more inconvenient when he's trying to play in the sand pit, build towers and dig tunnels. But the dog can be convenient when the boy breaks something, faces a disgusting dinner or watches something scary on TV.
This story encourages children to be the storytellers. The text is a merely a list of what makes the dog an annoying or beloved pet, but there is a whole story to talk about within each illustration.
