Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Never having owned a dog before, Stephen Foster underestimated the difficulty of raising a dog. Upon bringing Ollie home, Foster, unpleasantly surprised at the challenges he faced, sought to control Ollie's behavior. After an adjustment period, Foster learned that the dog's behavior, as well as his own, determined whether or not they could coexist. After adjusting accordingly, Foster developed a great love for his new best friend.

Complete and unabridged.
