Purebred and razzle-dazzle pink, Pete the poodle is the biggest star in the Circus Martinez. But when he muffs a couple of flaming-hoop jumps, he gets bumped from the headliner spot. Pete's just about ready to roll over and play dead when he comes nose to nose with the new attraction, a supersized grizzly bear named Fremont. Pete quickly teaches Fremont that though the big top is no place for a rookie, it's a breeding ground for loyalty.    This story is full of daredevil schemes, legendary letdowns, and stunning victories. But it's Pete and Fremont's friendship that ends up as the knock-'em-dead finale.
