Mars Needs Moms author Berkeley Breathed has set up his novel Flawed Dogs at DreamWorks Animation. The story started out as a children's picture book, and then later expanded into a novel entitled Flawed Dogs: The Novel: The Shocking Rain on Westminster.

The story centers on a dachshund who tries to win back the affections of his family after being wronged by an envious show dog. Here's what Berkeley Breathed had to say about the story.

"All my stories are sparked by a nugget of truth hiding in plain sight. In this case, it's that all animals dream... but only dogs dream of us."

Berkeley Breathed will executive produce, although neither a writer nor a director have been attached yet.
