But the well-ordered household is turned on its head whenever Madame Croissant's granddaughter, Daphne, comes to visit. She's as wild as Mr. Dash is courtly, and she makes the poor dog's life miserable. But when she finds herself in real trouble, Mr. Dash proves that he is not only well-mannered but as brave as any knight.
Merci Mister Dash is not only a hilarious salute to common courtesy, it will appeal to dog lovers and to anyone who is trying to civilize an untamed creature of any kind.
