Sam's parents run a catering company, which doesn't leave them much time for Sam. Though she has begged for a dog, her parents say they are just too busy.

But when she finds two pugs wrapped up in a blanket on her back porch, Sam can't not take in the abandoned pups. Trying to keep them safe, she sometimes has to bring them along to her parents' events, where the frisky pugs cause havoc. Jai, the cute boy whose dad performs at the same events, helps Sam wrangle them.

But when Sam's pug posts go viral online, the dogs become mini celebrities. Then someone comes forward to claim them. Is Sam in danger of losing the dogs she's fallen in love with?
