When Ike Larue is "imprisoned" at the Igor Brotweiler Canine Academy, he tries everything to get sent home--weepy letters to his owner, even illness. In reality, Brotweiler is more like camp than prison, but still, Ike's not cut out for life without Mrs. Larue and his creature comforts.
Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in Snort City--just in time to save Mrs. Larue's life. Teague is at the top of his fetching form in this madcap comedy where the real world of Brotweiler and the one Ike imagines are brilliantly depicted thru split-screen visuals, the former in color and the latter in black and white.---from the publisher
