It's adoption day on the farm and Blackie and his brothers and sister puppies will soon be going to new homes. Each of the puppies, except for Blackie, has a unique gift and Farmer Brown has carefully chosen their new home. Unlike his brothers and sisters, Blackie doesn't have a special gift. Despite Mama Dog's assurances that everything will be alright, Blackie is worried. What will happen to him now that it's time to leave the farm? How will Farmer Brown find him a new home when he isn't special or good at anything like his brothers and sisters? Is Mama Dog right? Are all dogs special?
