Beauregard is a two-year-old nonspeaking Portuguese Water Dog and the family pet in the Osborne household. One night, before falling asleep, he wished and he wished and he wished some more that he could walk and talk just as any human being. He desired to do things the way his family did every day and took for granted. The very next morning, he and his family were absolutely astounded when, with utter amazement and total disbelief, they discovered he could do exactly that!
With this newfound discovery, Beauregard had to make one of the hardest decisions ever—to stay with his family or go forth and discover what the world had to offer him. With the decision made, he decided to leave his family and to “live” life as a human. Before he could change his mind, he went out to experience many adventures—including playing in the park, finding a job, going on a shopping trip, and finally seeking his fortune. Suddenly, life for Beauregard became very, very exciting! There was no turning back as he thought, Look out, world, here I come!
