Bill, attending first grade at the Glenoak Grammar School in Florida, goes to school every day with his puppy, Whitie. Even the kind principal, Mrs. Case, understands and lets Whitie wait for Bill in her office. Whitie is an exceptionally well behaved dog and always waits for his master. Later Whitie learns tricks, such as fetching a bottle of Coke. The family acquires other ‘friends,' such as a Doberman pinscher, a rabbit, a squirrel -- and even a mean alligator, Big Dan, who lived in the lake near his house. This is really a love story about a dog, written by Bill's mother, who says, “Good dogs are like good people, their deeds are never forgotten.”
