Have you ever had a hurting heart? Joey has. This is a story about Joey. He is a shy little brown dog who looks like a hotdog with short legs and long, long ears.

A wise old bird named Robin Red Breast comes along to help him. Joey learns some important lessons from Robin about healing a hurting heart.
