In Allie Larkin's sparkling contribution to the "mutt-cute" genre, Savannah "Van" Leone decides to drown her sorrow in Kool-Aid and vodka after she loses Peter, the love of her life, to her best friend. When Van wakes up from her sugary bender, she has a splitting headache and a full-grown German Shepherd that she barely remembers buying over the Internet. Van's new companion, whom she names Joe, terrifies her neighbors and breaks most of her possessions, but he might be just what she needs to get her mind off her broken heart.
