Synopsis: When Cassie's dad walks out, Cassie and her mom must make it on their own. While her mom waitresses at the local diner, Cassie takes care of the laundry and cooking after school. She has always wanted a dog, more than anything in the world, but her mother has always refused. Who would take care of the dog? Feed it? And, most importantly, pay for its food, supplies, and trips to the vet? One day, Cassie's dream cautiously sniffs its way into her yard - and into her life.
