The problem is that though he''s learned to talk, he doesn''t always know when to shut up, and he comes to find out that there are times when talking can get you into trouble. Paulie''s first owner--and first love--is a little girl named Marie who raises him from a baby. Helping Marie overcome a painful stutter gives Paulie the gift of gab, but doesn''t prevent her parents from sending him away when they feel she is becoming too attached to him.
