Otter, a 7 week old Seeing Eye puppy comes to live with his puppy-raiser family. Everyone, including the family pets, have the job of raising Otter to be a well mannered dog so that some day he'll lead a person who is blind. Will Otter learn not to eat everything from clothes to food on off the table? Can he walk, not run down the sidewalk? Will there ever be peace in the house again? These are just a few of the obstacles the family has to overcome. In the end, will they succeed?
