Billy Buddy with Marcia
Never underestimate the power and influence of a dog
When the action kicks in real life, being a movie buff pays dividends

A troubled Greyhound finds her perfect match.
An elderly Pug needs a little help with the day-to-day.
Love and forgiveness. What else is there to know?
