Dog Sitters

Image
When their friends take a cruise to Bermuda, strangers Hint Daniels and Jack Whitby are charged with looking after their friends’ dog. Then everything starts to go wrong…

In the leafy New York suburb of Bronxville, Hint is supposed to hand Percy off to Jack on day-five of the ten days their friends are away. But at the handoff, the dog ends up running away. Neither is willing to tell their friends the bad news that Percy is missing. Instead, they spend five frantic days desperately searching for the schnoodle, with wildly different ideas on how to go about it. Between Jack’s heavy-handed approach and Hint’s otherworldly style, their personalities clash. Before long they’re bickering furiously, even as romantic sparks fly.

Will Percy show up before his owners do? And what surprising discovery will Hint and Jack make while looking for him?
