Barney is a gentle, but clumsy English sheepdog, brought to life in beautiful, flowing animation. He has his head in the clouds and dreams of stardom and fame. In fact, he wears a gold star on his collar to remind himself of his ambition. Unfortunately, Barney lacks one thing: talent. In his very, very long white fur lives Roger, a sharp, streetwise mouse who is always quick to point out the opportunities that Barney would otherwise have missed.
