Lauren’s dog Bella is about to have puppies and she can’t wait – even though Lauren knows that she mustn’t get too attached because she won’t be able to keep them.
But when the puppies are born, one is so tiny Mum and Dad aren’t sure it will pull through. Lauren helps her mum to hand-rear the littlest puppy, who she calls Lucy, to great success. But what will happen when the time comes for Lauren to give Lucy up?
