A young boy would rather play video games than go outside to enjoy the beautiful summer’s day. In an effort to get her son off the couch, his mother brings home a surprise gift – one that is very cute, distracting and furry. But the puppy isn’t perfect, and at first the boy snubs the playful pooch. The little guy proves to be hard to ignore, however – and might even be able to teach the boy something about himself.
