A Love Story
A dog is a dog
and a cat is a cat
And most of the time
it's as simple as that. . . .
Or is it?
What's a dog to do when he falls in love with the cat next door? Bark? Chase his tail? Dig up a "brass bone" and hope that the universal language of music will help him to express his feelings?
This humorous and heartfelt story is about the power of love and the power of music, told through the eyes of a lovelorn dog and the cat he adores.
