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 Guru Guru 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 Guru Guru Bone, Ponta switches back and forth from dog to girl... but can she win Mirai's affections?

Guru Guru Pon-chan is a story about a female dog who falls in love with a human male and she is given a "guru guru bone" that lets her transform into a human. If you can accept that this is a strange love story between an animal and human i can recommend you to read this.
Some of the chapters are quite fun when they are dealing with the fact that she is indeed, a dog but in many cases they are just playing with the humour factor of how a dog would act in human situations.. Many of the romantic scenes fall flat very read more

So... this manga to date, is the weirdest shoujo manga I've personally read. The romance, situations, and plot are so bizarre, it's amazing that I'm able to walk away from reading this acting like a normal human being. Does this mean this manga is bad and should be avoided? Heck no, I never regretted picking this up.

For context, I first picked up this series at an age (I probably shouldn't have) when I was just getting into shoujo manga, just learning how to read from right to left instead of left to right, so it was an awkward time. Picked the first volume from my read more

Being a lover of dogs I just had to try this out. Mostly expected it to be silliness considering the premise. And it does have plenty of laughs. But there's some good emotional content to it as well. Worries of caring for someone you can't quite understand because you are so different but still sticking with it because there's love. Wrap it up with some adorable artwork and some continually doggish behavior from Ponta and I'm charmed.
