The family dog develops a food allergy when she sneaks into a box of cereal. Mom calls the Vet, the dog goes through steps in her day to get better. Others around her get a few laughs (her symptoms are quite funny). The final page describes the seriousness of pet allergies and to call your Vet.



Short Summary

When the family finishes their breakfast, the dog sneaks over and eats the fruity cereal when nobody is looking. She develops an allergy that is very surprising.

Rosie and her family followed the Vet's direction (getting her to drink lots of water play hard and poo it out). Her allergy subsided by the end of that night.


The family’s home and neighbourhood.

Development Pitch

Everyone knows what children laugh at. Tooting and poop talk is high on that list. If Rosie became a tv or Netflix show, parents could be assured their children are learning about something important to the safety of their pets while getting a good laugh. Having it become a series of episodes would be funny and show other events in the dog’s home. With a moral at the end of each episode, I would let my grandchildren watch for sure.

About The Author

I wrote my first three poems when I was fifteen. Since then, I have published two poetry books, a self-help memoir and I've just completed my second children's book. I'm inspired by the people and family pets, around me.

Accuracy of Book Profile

The book profile does do a good job of reflecting the book without giving away the surprise of tooting fruity cereal. The development may benefit from even more explanation about how the story could be expanded as a series based on more thematic elements being introduced. The listing of a car as one the characters could also be changed to the family as the cat is more of a character than the car.

Draw of Story

Rosie's dog story is cute and appealing to kids. The conflict is easy to follow with a good lesson for a family media piece.

Possible Drawbacks

It is a bit hard to see how the conflict would be sustained for longer than a short. The family characters are a bit underdeveloped despite showing their unique character dynamics with Rosie. Adding more escalating plot points and subplots about Rosie and her family aside from just the allergic reaction might help make the story seem more able to sustain a half hour show or a feature.

Use of Special Effects


Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that Rosie's allergic reaction teaches an important lesson to kids about taking care of their pets and making sure they don't eat what they are supposed to. It takes a serious lesson in an engaging and funny manner with a luckily happy ending.

Fanbase Potential

This could potentially be popular with families with young kids depending on the medium it is adapted into as long as the conflict can be sustained throughout the story for a longer period of time and the side characters become further developed.

Awards Potential

This could potentially have awards potential in the children's market but is unlikely to gain recognition depending on style for adult prestige awards due to its simplicity and poop focus.

Envisioned Budget

What’s New About the Story

The originality of the story stems from the highly specific lesson of a responsible handle on allergies in a respectful but fun manner and also that the story focuses on taking care of pets.

Lead Characters

Rosie is a curious, bold and loving pet. Her family is supportive and helpful as well as responsible. The cat is beleaguered but overall a good sport.

Uniqueness of Story

This is a cute story, but the conflict is perhaps a bit too simple and the side characters are not as developed to sustain a longer story than a couple of scenes.

Analyst Recommendation



While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

By fleshing out the side characters with subplots or further developing their character dynamics with Rosie as well as how responsibility is delegated after Rosie's accident could help develop the family theme of taking care of the family pet. Also adding more complications to the conflict could help prolong the climax to lengthen the pacing to a more normal length that viewers are used to as shorts are hard to market unless kept strictly online.
