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>

Quotes

Peggy: So, Layla says you don't want to get a dog - doesn't fit into your lifestyle.
Don: I'm never home.
Peggy: Well, I think you should get a dog.
Don: Yeah?
Peggy: Yeah. It teaches responsibility.
Don: Well, maybe I don't want to be responsible.
Peggy: Might keep you out of trouble.
Don: Yeah, how's that?
Peggy: I don't know. You're getting married... you could... you know, like go home and walk the dog instead of, I don't know... going to the mall and meeting other women - at Victoria's Secret, say?

Horrible
9 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of funny movies, idie movies, even mumblecore movies....but this movie is terrible. Not one scene in this trash even amused me. How can anyone see this as funny?

I suffered through this movie with 5 other friends. Not one person, one time laughed. I was embarrassed to have bought this movie to show to them.

Comments on the film:

"A happy go lucky woman who has many friends who appreciate her and a job that utilizes her skills. She Has a nice home and she has her beloved dog Pencil. Presently, she chooses to be single. Then something happens that sends her into the dog eat dog world of searching for love."

really? is this for the right movie? *meh
