Baker is a 12-year-old loner who has been working as the
neighbourhood dog-walker so he can earn the privilege of
getting a dog of his own. His hard work pays off when his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Baker, let Owen adopt a scruffy mutt
he names Hubble. Both boy and dog get more than they bargained
for when Owen wakes up one morning to discover he can understand
every word Hubble says-- including the ominous phrase: “Take
me to your leaders.” Owen learns that dogs came to Earth
thousands of years ago to colonise and dominate the planet.
Hubble (named Canid 3942) has been sent by the powerful
Greater Dane on a mission from the Dog Star Sirius to make
sure dogs have fulfilled this destiny. Despite the best
efforts of Owen's rag-tag group of neighbourhood dogs to
convince him otherwise, Hubble soon discovers the awful
truth about Earth dogs: “You're all pets!” Now Owen and
Hubble must work together to prepare the neighbourhood dogs
for a visit from The Greater Dane--or all dogs will be removed
from the planet! The fate of Earth dogs hangs in the balance,
and it's up to Owen, Hubble, and their canine companions
to save man's best friend.

Massey, a prominent Los Angeles divorce attorney has everything--and
in some cases, two of everything. Despite his impressive
client list, a formidable win record, the respect of his
peers and an ironclad contract (the "Massey pre-nup")
named after him, he's reached a crossroads in his life.
Sated on success, boredom has set in and he's looking for
new challenges. All that changes when Miles meets his match
in the devastating Marylin Rexroth. Marylin is the soon-to-be
ex-wife of his client Rex Rexroth, a wealthy real estate
developer and habitual philanderer. With the help of hard
charging private investigator Gus Petch, she has Rex nailed
and is looking forward to the financial independence a successful
divorce will bring. But thanks to Miles' considerable skills,
she ends up with nothing. Not to be outdone, Marylin schemes
to get even and as part of her plan, quickly marries oil
tycoon Howard Doyle. Miles and his unflappable associate,
Wrigley, unwittingly dig themselves deeper and deeper as
they go head-to-head with Marylin. Underhanded tactics,
deceptions and an undeniable attraction escalate as Marylin
and Miles square off in this classic battle of the sexes.
