Max the dog's beloved wife Crepes is about to have puppies--and Max finds himself on a wild journey in India, returning home just in time to meet his expanded family.
The hero of Max Makes a Million goes off on a wild search for the meaning of life that takes him to India, where he visits the Temple of Doubletalk, meets a chatty guru named Vivek Shabaza-zaza-za, and has other adventures.
