Cat person Emily Patton has a general dislike of dogs and lawyers, which does not bode well for trendy lawyer Michael Forbes. Michael and Emily have known each other for almost their entire lives, but have never gotten along. Emily is toO tradional for Michael, and Michael is toO aloof for Emily's tastes.
When they are out walking one night they find an abused puppy, and Michael insists that it is their duty to take care of the dog. He wants to keep it, but lives in an apartment. He therefore coerces Emily into keeping the dog at her house until he can find a new place. He promises to take care of the dog and visit it regularly.
The dog, aptly named Dog, turns Emily's life upside down. It destroys her lawn, messes up her house, and terrorizes her cats. To make matters worse, Emily finds herself unwillingly attracted to Michael, who has been spending a great deal of time at her house.
Michael is also developing feelings for Emily, but is not good with relationships. He refuses to acknowledge the extent of his feelings for Emily until faced with the prospect of losing her when he moves into a new house with Dog.
