Bailey Daley (Christensen) is a hapless young bride who has run away from the altar with not one, but three dogs she adopted from past relationships. Running into a small diner one rainy evening in a soaked wedding dress with her dogs at her feet, Bailey launches into the story of her strange predicament to the restaurant owners, Louie (Michael Kopsa, “Fringe”) and Nikki (DeWitt). She explains that she hasn’t been able to find the right love, always longing for the more loyal, stable companionship she finds in her ex-boyfriends’ canine companions. Against the knowing advice of her mother Dina (Rothery) and best friend Amber (Holmes), Bailey tries to transform herself into the perfect fit for each new guy she meets—athletic Wade (Hutch), moody Jonathan (Oliver Rice, “On Hollowtree Farm”), and, finally, wealthy Eric (Guilbaut). As each relationship ends, Bailey adopts her ex’s dogs, but remains hopelessly single. Until, a twist of fate that stormy night leads her to realize that true puppy love happens only after one stops searching for it.
