Meet Hola. She's a nightmare. But she’s gorgeous.
Hola may be the most beautiful Bernese mountain dog in the world, but she's never been trained, so it's not her fault if she tackles strangers, chews on furniture, and runs after buses. That honor falls to Marty, Hola's supposed master, who is a high-functioning alcoholic. A TV writer turned management consultant, Marty's in debt and out of shape; he's about to lose his job, and his wife, too, if he can't get his life--and his dog--under control. Desperately trying to save his marriage, Marty throws himself headlong into the world of competitive dog training. Unfortunately, he knows even less than Hola, the only dog ever to be expelled from her puppy preschool twice.
