The heartwarming story centers on a Mushroom Pup who is one day born in the yard of picture book author Hotaru Yuyami. It wags its tail just like a dog, but it's unknown if it's a dog or a mushroom. It draws pictures where it shouldn't, and always wants to eat Hotaru's takoyaki.

Aoboshi launched the manga in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū magazine in 2010 after first publishing the manga as a one-shot, and the manga moved online when the magazine ended print publication in June 2018. The manga ended serialization in February 2022. Tokuma Shoten released the manga's 15th and final compiled volume in May 2022. The manga has more than 1.7 million copies in circulation.

Digital Manga Publishing's Juné imprint had licensed the manga in 2012 and released two volumes.
