People tell me I'm no different than any other Tibetan Terrier, but somehow I must be different because I've had three homes.
 
Being a pup in foster care is awfully confusing. What's Murphy do when he's taken away from his family and placed in a new home, with new people, new pets, and...new EVERYTHING?!
 
As he moves from one house to another, Murphy begins to understand all his sad and angry feelings and finds ways to cope. Eventually, he discovers what it means to be a "good luck" dog as he jumps and barks his way into a comfortable spot in his new home.
 
An extensive Note to Parents, written by author Jan Levinson Gilman, PhD, discusses the emotional experience of children who are in foster care, and provides caregivers with information on how to help kids cope with the difficulties of being placed in multiple homes.
