Story Summary

While rez dogs make it a rule to have no master, Ozzie was very fond of old Mrs. Cruz. When Mrs. Cruz's grandson, Marino, hears that she may have to sell her house because it was in such disrepair, he decides to raise money by selling t-shirts at the coming powwow. But sales are slow until Ozzie dons a t-shirt wins the hearts of onlookers and leads them to Marino's sales booth.
