Jitterbug lives in a modest cabin in the Ozarks of Arkansas. The runt of a litter of dachshunds, she's hopelessly at odds with her surroundings and can't help but dream of making a name for herself in the big city. When opportunity knocks, Jitterbug escapes her pet carrier and lands herself in show business. Her impromptu adventure takes her across the country, acting on stage, on TV, and in commercials. But how fabulous is a life of work, work, work? And how long before she starts to miss home?
