Mickey is a real Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) who just moved to the farm with fourteen-year-old Megan, his wise and fun-loving best friend. Ever playful, Mickey's energy, enthusiasm, and curiosity feed his adventurous spirit, which inevitably leads him into troublesome situations. Like the time he brought a baby chick home to Megan as a present, much to the dismay of the chick's mother! Luckily, Mickey makes plenty of new friends, like Guy, an always-hungry, well-traveled British goat, and Fiona, a fun-loving, fast-talking ferret. With help from Megan and his new friends, Mickey is able to figure out questions like why their duck friends disappeared for the winter, or why they can't find the cow that makes chocolate milk and why Mickey smells funny after meeting a furry, black animal with a white stripe on his back.
