The pup with the pink collar, the one Abby leaves behind, is forlorn until the next day when young Sophie spots her. "You look lonely ... just like me," she whispers to the little pink-collared doggy.

She adores her new dog, Kelly, but still wonders, "What happened to that poodle puppy with the pink collar?" Sophie lives in a penthouse apartment in the city. For as long as she can remember, her family has moved to a new place every year. Making new friends is difficult for Sophie, and her parents are workaholics. "Rosie, you are my best friend," Sophie tells her lovable pup.
