Sam finds a big black dog in her backyard. She wants to keep him, but she can't let her mother find out. So she hides him in the shed. Meanwhile, Stella wakes up in a strange room after having had a stroke. She can't move and she can't talk. So how can she ask what happened to her dog? This is a story about a magical dog who changes Sam's life in ways she could never have dreamed.
