We would like to introduce you to Ted, a smart dog with his own sweater!

Looking for a place to belong, Ted decides to leave his pet shop. He joins the circus where trained dogs fly through the air. Ted balances on a popcorn box. No one notices him. He enters a pet show where groomed poodles pose on pillars. Ted wears a fancy headdress. No one notices him. He finds a junkyard where other growling guard dogs leap at a burglar. Ted jumps too. The burglar doesn't notice him. At last a girl on a bike who's looking for a furry friend, takes Ted home. When Ted arrives, he is in for a bit of a surprise. Has he finally found the perfect place?

Comedian Terri Psiakis shares Leila Rudge's adorable story of one very fine dog.
