"The Little Pig Dog: The Dog Who Grunts Like A Pig (Jake's Story)" is a book about a little black dog that awakes to find himself under a cedar tree next to a big grassy field. With no food, no water, and no memories of where he came from, he tries to introduce himself to the family in the little gray house.
