Synopsis and Plot Summary

It tells a touching story about a loyal dog named Batong who waited for the return of his owner for ten years even after his owner's death.

University professor Chen Jingxiu (Feng Xiaogang) meets a puppy on the street and secretly takes it home out of pity. However, his wife Li Jiazhen (Chen Chong) blows up at the "family meeting" and scolds him for violating their agreement before marriage to not have dogs at home.

Given that their son Chen Xinqiao (Bai Jugang) and daughter Chen Xiaozhou (Huang Chutong) keep adding oil to the fire, the puppy seems to have become the source of a lot of trouble in the family. Nonetheless, Batong also opens doors to a joyful story between the Chen family and their beloved canine.
