Harry is a man still mourning the loss of his beloved girlfriend, Imogen, who left him suddenly without a word. He' s also the owner of a plump, poetry-loving Lab, Randolph. Like most Manhattan dogs, Randolph spends his days sifting through a world of scents, his owner' s neuroses, and an overcrowded doggy run at the American Museum of Natural History.

Now, to protect his hapless owner' s life, Randolph might have to do the unthinkable-- and start training Harry to catch a killer... .
