Blaze N. Haught, once the most popular kid in fifth grade, becomes a loner when his parents move from their big city condo to a beach house. His parents agree to adopt a stray dog, Sir Licksalot, so long as Blaze promises to make an effort to meet new friends. Finding it difficult to fit in with the neighborhood kids, Blaze competes in challenges to win their friendship. A competition is underway when the boys notice their sisters, and Sir Licksalot, have disappeared from the mysterious water fountain in Blaze's backyard.
