Daisy and Robina are desperate for a dog. They've tried everything and in desperation they sneak a book about magic out of their older sister's room and try to cast a spell. Later that day, to their great amazement and delight, a dog appears in their house. The curious-looking mutt resembles a cross between a poodle and an afghan hound and the girls love their 'afoodle' on sight. Dad, however, has a more prosaic explanation for the dog's appearance, and what it's doing in their house. But all the girls want to know is, can he stay?
