Moose, a lovable chocolate Lab with an enthusiasm for tennis balls, bones, and all things squirrel, is a chronic worrier. On his first day at doggie daycare, Moose feels butterflies in his belly when he thinks about the endless worries that Fret the Flea whispers into his floppy brown ear. What if Moose can't run as fast as the other dogs? What if his parents forget to pick him up? A hero emerges in the form of Mighty Moose, the brave rival to meddlesome Fret. With Mighty Moose teaching him to change his thoughts, Moose returns to doggie daycare and learns to face his fears and run with the big dogs.
