Young Alan takes on the job of watching Miss Hester's little white dog while she is away visiting her cousin, Eunice.  The little dog, Fritz, is quite a character chewing and barking with laughter as he takes Alan on a day-long doggie adventure.  Off for an afternoon walk, Fritz disappears with Alan's hat and the chase begins.  

Alan loses sight of his little canine friend and finds himself in the garden of a retired magician, Abdul Gasazi.  What magic lurks in these gardens?  Where is little Fritz?  Can you discover where the reality stops and the magic begins?
