Annotation

Fabio is an only dog who longs for a brother to play with him. His owners agree, but the dog they bring home is not the frisky brother he envisioned. It is fat old Gracie, fresh from the pound. She's tired, she's shy, and worst of all, she's a girl. After boasting about a brother, how will Fabio face his friends?
