In the home where Cindy lives, no dogs are allowed, so she must bundle puppy up when she goes to work as a cleaning woman in the Hospice. One patient is so blind with illness that he can barely see the dog; it looks like a smudge.

But, oh, how nice to hold the puppy. What is Cindy to do? How will she care for Smudge?

How Smudge Came was made into an award winning television movie and became an international best seller.
