Storyline

When single mom Megan Nolan moves to a new town, she feels guilty for uprooting her ten-year-old daughter Caitlin. Seeing that the little girl's only friend is a neighbor's dog, Megan decides to adopt a shelter pet for Caitlin. She immediately regrets her decision when Caitlin gravitates to the biggest, sloppiest dog in the pound, Jake. Megan's beautiful new home is now in shambles and, as Megan considers returning Jake to the shelter, handsome ballplayer Ben shows up claiming Jake is his dog, the regrettable outcome of his roommate leaving a gate open. Megan and Ben butt heads. Ben wants to take his dog and leave, until he sees that Caitlin loves Jake as much as he ever could. Now it is clear: the pound puppy everyone loves deserves no less than joint custody. Written by Hallmark Channel

Love it, love it, hurrah for Puppy Love!
31 March 2014 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Megan (Candace Cameron Bure) is moving cross country with her very reluctant daughter Caitlin (Katie Hawkins). Having received a great job offer as a professor at a small college in California, Megan is excited but Caitlin already misses her former friends. It is the beginning of summer and Megan hopes the three months will help get Cait settled. Yet, the young girl is sad. To cheer her up, Megan takes her to a dog shelter, with the hopes that adopting a small, well-behaved dog will help ease the pain. Ho ho, Caitlin falls immediately for a rambunctious sheepdog who has just come into the place. There is no use arguing her case, Megan realizes, this is the dog for her offspring. Alas, trouble comes at once. Not only is Prince a chewer, but, worse, he really belongs to a traveling minor league baseball player. This athlete, Ben (Viktor Webster) had boarded the dog with a close friend but Prince, er, Jake, was too clever for the pal and broke loose. After a fruitless, weeklong search, the two males end up at the shelter where they leave flyers about a missing dog. This prompts the shelter to call Megan and tell her what's what. As Ben comes to retrieve Jake, it suddenly becomes clear that Caitlin will be sad to lose the dog, too. And, as Ben is still roaming from place to place as his schedule demands, Caitlin is the perfect dogsitter. What could be better than sharing the dog, at least for the time being? Despite Ben's handsome face, he and Megan get off to a bad start, although sparks do seem to be whirling through the air. Will Megan fall for Ben? What happens when the season is over and Ben wants his dog back full time? This DARLING movie is yet again a bonafide winner from Hallmark. How I love that company, they make the best flicks! What could be better than fetching leading ladies and men, cute kids, adorable dogs, a great setting, and a keep-em-guessing romance? You will love Puppy Love, fans of romantic comedy, so go sniff it out!
