Moving from the city to a new house in the country can be tough. Just ask Henry, who can't find a playmate in his new neighborhood.

Luckily, Henry's got Mudge—a great big, 182-pound canine buddy—to share all kinds of adventures! Henry also quickly discovers that having a pet is a big responsibility—they need to be fed, they need to be taken out for walks, and, of course, they need lots of love and playtime. And when the dog is as big as Mudge, they also need good training. Henry teaches his new friend to sit, heel, and shake his hand, but rolling over is one trick Henry just can't seem to teach Mudge, no matter how hard he tries.

When Henry's cousin Annie visits, Mudge rolls over at her command. Upset and thinking Mudge loves Annie more than him, Henry runs away into the cold, dark woods to find adventures on his own. But Mudge follows the boy's scent into the forest, proving that he really does love Henry and doesn't want to be without him.

Will the two friends be reunited? Find out in this delightful musical, based on the best-selling book series by Cynthia Rylant.
