Raymond the dog is just your regular family pet until, one day, he has a thought: couldnít he just . . . sit at the table? Isnít that what families do together? Soon Raymond begins to leave all his canine ways behind, and so do all the other dogs in town. Dogs go to the movies; dogs go out for coffee; and Raymond lands a high-powered journalism job at DOGUE magazine. But is Raymondís new gig all work and no play? He doesnít even have time for family dinner! Maybe, just maybe, Raymond misses the dogís life. . . . At once comedic and genuine, this tale about appreciating the simpler things in life reminds us all that work can wait ó after all, there are more important things (like getting your ears scratched in just the right place).

Sit. Fetch. Have a cappuccino. When Raymond the dog starts acting human, will he miss the dogís life?
