Ponta is a Labrador retriever puppy, the Koizumi family's pet. She's full of energy and usually up to some kind of mischief. But when Grandpa Koizumi, an amateur inventor, creates the Guruguru Bone, Ponta's curiosity causes trouble. She nibbles the bone... and turns into a human girl!

Surprised but undaunted, Ponta ventures out of the house and meets Mirai Iwaki, the most popular boy at school. When Mirai saves her from a speeding car, Ponta changes back into her puppy self. Yet much has changed for Ponta during her short adventure as a human. Her heart races and her face flushes when she thinks of Mirai now. She's in love! Using the power of the Guruguru Bone, Ponta switches back and forth from dog to girl... but can she win Mirai's affections?

(((Warning, spoilers but I'm not marking as spoilers because you need to hear the problems))

Ok, gonna try and fill out the necessary word count, but the most important thing to note is that - this manga borderlines of noncery and bestiality .

I mean c'mon, the golden retreiver PUPPY can turn into a girl? The ML is meant to be a teenager but this MFer drawn like he's 30 and trying to be in a boy band aimed at children. But I mean really, a puppy, a creature that should be manifesting as a toddler and not a 17 year old girl - and yet here ...
