Gina, out of work as a school teacher, agrees to take over her cousin’s dog sitting business for a while. Gina’s first assignment is for baseball superstar Cal Crawford. Cal inherited the elderly dog, Tippy, after his mom passed away. Cal is not a dog person, but he feels responsible for this piece of his mom that’s left for him. Gina is a natural at the dog sitting business and also natural at making people feel at ease. Cal, as a superstar, is cautious and private. Tippy is described as friendly, ugly, and engaging. As private as Cal is, the dog is the opposite. His fame shoots higher when Tippy is around and Tippy makes Cal more approachable. Tippy becomes key to Cal’s future of mending fences and coping with his stardom.
