Give that dog a puddle and he’d splash. Give him a whistle and he’d roll over. Give him a rule and he’d break it.

One day a passel of puppies was born. Each puppy was designated for a Very Important Job, like Service Dog, or Search and Rescue Dog, or Groomed for the Show Ring Dog.

Each puppy, that is, except Mogie. Mogie was a ball-chasing, tail-wagging, moon-howling pup. Not the kind of pup for any of those jobs!

But there is a place that is just right for this rambunctious pup: the Ronald McDonald House, the place where sick children and their families can stay while they undergo longterm treatment. A place with children NEEDS a ball-chasing, tall-wagging, moon-howling pup.

And there's one little boy in particular who needs Mogie. As for Mogie? He's about to prove he's the best of the liter!

Based on a true story, nothing has ever proved more inspiring to the critically ill children at the Ronald McDonald House than the introduction of a real life puddle splashing, ball chasing, rule breaking pup named Mogie--who always knows what a sick kiddo needs more than anything.
