Synopsis

A Golden Retriever & His Two Dads tells the story of how Willy, a Golden Retriever, helps guide his owner, Dan, in his pursuit to find a life partner. Willy has been the love of his life for over nine years helping Dan survive a life-threatening disease. But now Dan would like a relationship with someone of his own species as well. Goldens are a very devoted breed and love to please their guardians. One morning at the local coffee shop, Willy pesters a handsome patron to the point that Dan must intervene and apologize.  His name is James and he’s a movie producer, living in Los Angeles over two hours away. A romance develops but a long distant relationship is difficult to maintain and Dan thinks about ending it.

Willy’s ears perk up when he hears James announce that he is leaving for eight weeks to make a film on Cape Cod. He invites Dan and Willy to join him and even offers to hire them to work on the crew. One minute Dan is contemplating ending the relationship and now he must decide if he is ready to commit to living and working with James on a film set. Willy and Dan accept the offer and thus the experiment on Cape Cod begins.

It is uncanny when they discover that the drama of the movie seems to mirror the adventure that Willy, Dan & James are about to embark on. The film, Wild About Harry, is about a father, Harry, and his two teenage daughters, who move to Cape Cod after their mother has died. Their uptight dad starts a new relationship with a passionate craftsman named Theodore.

Dan is a little nervous about living with James as they are also temperamental opposites. He being of Greek/Italian/Irish descent, relies on emotions to respond to life’s challenges. While James seems to take a more reserved approach.

Starting a new relationship while making a film provides them with ample obstacles to resolve their different approaches. Especially, when Willy suddenly collapses with a mysterious sickness, Dan’s parents show up on the set uninvited, or the day the actors rebel against the director to name a few. Part travelogue, part romance, part Hollywood, A Golden Retriever & His Two Dads is a thoroughly entertaining dog adventure you won’t want to miss.
