When a call for paws goes out, five friends bring their collies without question to a friend’s house. They learn the collies are needed to help seven children with the grief of losing a parent in Iraq or Afghanistan. Now, with seven friends, four collie yearlings and their mother, they set out to help the children

Not far away a mother hopefully leads her seven puppies to safety from a man intent on selling them for illicit purposes.

By a miracle of fate the two mother collies find each other right before the man sells the puppies.

That Christmas morning will be one the children will remember all their lives and they are united with the puppies.


A group of humans bring their collies together to assist seven children adjusting to the loss of a parent in Iraq or Afghanistan. Meanwhile, a mother collie leads her brood of seven puppies away from a bad man. When the two groups of collies meet, possibilities open up for the therapy program. Will everyone get a collie this Christmas?

This is a warm-hearted tale about the love between man (or child) and dog that sets one up perfectly for a fur-ball Christmas.
