Greg brings home a dog he found in the park or that has found him bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her nametag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of this job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications …

Directions to Audition location: From town, go over “new” bridge, left past fairgrounds and Hotel Ladera. Pass the entrance to the Jaramillo Arriba road on the left (paved); the house is the 4th house on the left past that entrance. Look for a black and yellow gate, house is white.
