Storyline

Peggy is single, childless, in her 40s, a lonely executive assistant in a friendly office. Her dog Pencil is the love of her life, and when he dies after eating some sort of toxin, Peggy's life spins out of her control: a friendly neighbor invites her for dinner; a friendly staff member at her vet's calls with an abused dog he recommends she adopt - she does, and also finds herself attracted to this fellow. She becomes a vegan, supports animal-rights causes, and embroils her brother's young children in these concerns. Saving dogs and other animals become such a passion that her mental health and her job may be in danger. Are regaining control and finding love beyond her reach? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Complete waste of time
24 November 2007 | by mark-aggieSee all my reviews

This movie was the biggest piece of crap I've seen in a while.

The movie box called it a quirky comedy .... well, there was nothing quirky or comedic about it.

Her dog dies and in that depression, she is duped into a lifestyle and militant political view.

There are NO redeeming characters.

Her one "passsion", saving animals, she does irresponsibly. Getting 15 dogs from the pound. Typical of of do-gooders who have no idea what their out of touch views actually mean in real life.

Good grief, if I wanted to be bombarded with liberal propaganda, I would rent a Michael Moore "documentary".
