Each pet relationship is unique but equally rewarding.
Some canine companions are a memory of a lost spouse; for others, a helpful instigator for personal growth. For Eva Longoria’s and Rob Corddry’s characters, the love of a pet is an opportunity to connect to their adopted daughter. For Dobrev’s talk-show host Elizabeth, a doggy date with her co-worker is the chance to open up after a bad relationship. As the film shows, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a 5-year-old girl or a grown man, there’s nothing quite like the hours spent trying to teach your dog to roll over, standing out in the morning breeze while he sniffs the same tree for the fifth time or playing fetch in a dog park.
