Talk about delightful.
Instantly capturing your heart, Sterling, a slight, gray, spotted dog, is in search of a home...a place to belong. He has twisted himself pretzelishly into shape after shape to try to fit in and be whatever someone wants him to be... so he can be loved. Somehow he neer succeeds. But this time, this time ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, this time Sterling has a foolproof plan. He is going to arrive at his new home as a fork ... a truly much-needed implement no home can be without.
Whimsy runs rampant here as Sterling contorts, twists, stretches, squeezes and to our amazement does take on the shape of other things. How can a dog appear to be a the cutest thing sticking out of the dishwasher utensil compartment?
