cute dog with attitude problems. film at 11…

Cute-enough Christmas story featuring a naughty little dog… or at least a dog who starts off as a naughty little dog and then becomes Rudolph the Red-Nosed Puppy.

Still, Davey’s having a good time with it, so I’ll keep reading it to him on and off before bed until it has to go back to the library. ***
