Wilson Steele is a professor and Vietnam vet who likes living alone, insisting it's too late to have a family. His mother disagrees. She impulsively adopts a rescue dog, and insists Thurman has whispered of grandchildren. Her retirement community's �no pets' policy forces Wilson to take the dog. Now he's talking to neighbors on their walks, and spending time with a widowed mom of three . . . but not because Thurman encouraged him.
