This is the story of Phil, a good kid who is smart and obedient. But he was very sad because his dream was to have a dog to play with but he wasn´t allowed. He was seven years old and adored dogs as well as other animals and that´s why he was sad and unconsolable.

Daniel lived with his parents and his nanny Joana, in a beautiful house in front of the park. But he was never in the park. His parents were always working and he preferred to be at home studying rather than outside playing. He used to spend too much time in his home library while Joana did the housework.

Daniel was actually very sad, as for most of the day he was alone with Joana. His parents were never at home and this frustrated him. Joana was always trying to motivate the boy to go out and play with the other kids, but he used to ignore her. He knew that he would have fun with them, but he was never in the mood to go.
