It looks as though Buddy, the old dog that has been the Rieger family's pet for all his 19 years, is headed for that Big Kennel in the Sky. The normally cool-headed Alex Rieger (Judd Hirsch) must make the decision to pack Buddy off for a final visit to the vet or to keep him at home and prolong his misery. Surprisingly, it is the abrasive and unlovable Louie DePalma (Danny DeVito) who proves to be the most sensitive and caring participant in this little drama of life.
