At first Dave thinks he's gone crazy, but he soon realizes he's found his soul mate. Dave and Reg start off on a madcap adventure that will find them tangled up with the mob, involved in an illegal real estate deal, cleaning up at the poker table, and stumbling toward true love.
The wisdom of Reg the dog:
On couches being chewable because they are actually sausages
"It's got a skin, it's got stuffing, what am I not getting here?"
On entering a dangerous establishment
"Actually, I've changed my mind. There's no atmosphere so menacing it can't be banished by a ham sandwich."
On Dave's awful girlfriend
"She wants so to be pack leader. She acts as if she's in control when you're there, you defer to her all the time. Would it not be better if she were allowed to go and form her own pack?"
"Every time you put it on you end up going somewhere you don't want to. That's what I call a leash."
