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

[Closing lines]
Peggy: If you all didn't think I was crazy, I'm sure you will now. How do I explain the things I've said and done? How do I explain the person I've become? I know I've disappointed everyone and I'm sorry for that. I wish I was a more articulate person. I believe life is magical. It is so precious. And there are so many kinds of life in this life. So many things to love. The love for a husband or a wife, a boyfriend or girlfriend. The love for children. The love for yourself. And even ...

Dog poop
29 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie goes absolutely nowhere in an hour and a half. No substance at all. Do you really think after making a movie like this and then watching it that everyone involved actually thought they made a decent movie. Blah! If i had paid for this I definitely would have asked for my money back.

No imagination ruins this movie from the beginning. A dog dies and that is the most exciting part of the movie. Then you get watch an hour of mindless acting.

Just when you thought something might happen that would add to the story it died just like the dog. How people can rate this movie high must have been high.
