But now, as a result of the Great Recession, Courtney’s world is unraveling. Her father has been unemployed for a long time and the bank is about to foreclose on their home. Soon her family will be moving into an apartment that doesn’t allow dogs. Heartbreakingly for Courtney that means Theo won’t be able to come along.

But when the day of reckoning arrives something completely unexpected occurs. It ends up leading Courtney on an extraordinary journey, which teaches her important life lessons and makes her understand that a dog’s love is forever.
