All Henry wants is a dog. Henry wants a dog more than anything else in the world. When he advertises for his perfect pet, a disguised duck answers the advert and the duck and Henry have great fun… until the duck’s disguise falls off and he has to admit he is not a dog but just a duck. After some research Henry says “So you might not be a dog… but you are certainly NOT just a duck. In fact, you might just be The Perfect Pet for me.”
