Jon Katz faces a midlife crisis. His wife moves out because he was growing too distant, their daughter Emma has moved to a place of her own, and he is left in the house with their two Labrador Retrievers and a severe case of writer's block. A dog breeder who has read his books convinces him to take in an abused and hyperactive Border Collie named Devon – and his crazy new life begins.
