Overview

Eric was given a dog for this eighth birthday – that was nearly a year ago. The dog, named Ugly (because he is just that), settles into Eric’s family but is not attached to Eric in any way. In fact, Ugly prefers everyone else in the family!

Eric has several crazy ideas to make Ugly love him, but Ugly is not swayed. Eric slowly comes to realise that in order to win over Ugly, he has to put in time, effort and most importantly, show him love and affection.
