Smack dab in the middle of America, Kiddo, a ‘scruffy’ commitment-phobic mutt searches for his next 'unsuspecting human' to train as a bona fide dog rescuer. As he pretends to be lost, he gets a ‘scruffy’ mismatched kid named, Abby, to take him in. It is love at first sight, as they find common ground in being...scruffy, but there is a much deeper plan. Kiddo, kicks into gear his gift of telepathically sending messages to all the dogs in the neighborhood who are lost and confused, sad and abused, who need to be rescued. Before long, Abby has no idea why she has an eclectic group of dogs under her charge, including Zeus, the benevolent Great Pyrenees. She naturally falls in line and begins to find them homes, thus simultaneously fulfilling Kiddo's secret 'Master Plan," in training a human to find them 'Masters." Abby, often bullied by the neighbor kids, attracts the attention of Luke, the coolest kid in the neighborhood. Together, they join an alliance and begin a fantastic journey of finding purpose, hope, courage, friendship, and generosity, because anything is possible with the love of a great dog!

The reader is brought into two parallel worlds as both human and canine deal with life challenges. They learn they are not that different after all. In the end, we ask, are the humans really doing the rescuing or does this secret world of doggie communication, expose that all along it was a ruse to rescue humans. Every character has their own song, written by Joni and some of Nashville’s top songwriters, on the interactive website
