Ricky overcomes his deep fear of dogs to rescue a starving puppy, eventually growing to love his misfit dog named Kitty. Ganser's Midwestern accent lends authenticity and completeness to this tale set in Oklahoma. Reading Ricky's long narrative, he easily adjusts his tones to the young character's many emotions. Ganser's mature intonations neatly mimic the few adult parts required. Describing the deadly fight against the feral dog pack, Ganser fills the listener with such intense emotion that the scene seems real. Despite the sadder scenes, Ganser's rendering of the story's end enhances the positive aspects of the plot and leaves the listener feeling happy and hopeful.
