“Boy,” a small, brown and “kind of stinky” dog, is neglected and bored in his backyard. Mr. Miller is recently widowed and struggling with his loss. One night Boy digs his way under the fence, and when Mr. Miller discovers him in his yard the following morning, it’s love at first sight. Themes of neglect and then friendship are explored in this book.
