Laura-Lou promises her mom and dad that if only she can have a puppy, he will have perfect manners. Puppy has other ideas— like snacking on the houseplants and jumping out of the tub and sliding down the hall. Laura Lou knows that it’s up to her to teach him to be the very best puppy he can be. Together, they learn how to change a little bundle of trouble into a perfectly mannered member of the family… well, almost.
