Synopsis Of Walking The Dog On Hallmark Channel

According to It’s A Wonderful Movie, Walking the Dog surrounds Kristie Simmons, an attorney with a battle on her hands. First, she has taken possession of a dog until the owner returns, and she is gearing up to fight litigation concerning the opening of a new bike lane in the community. To Kristie, the bike lane is important since it will give residents in the seaside Pacific Northwest village a chance to ride in safety and enjoy the gorgeous coastlines. But not everyone is on board with the idea.

Kristie learns that another hot-shot lawyer is in town. His name is Keith Amos. Normally stationed in Seattle, Keith has arrived to negotiate a plan to construct a stretch of lavish high-rise condos in the scenic area. However, Kristie has no plans to stand by and watch as this beautiful nature preserve is destroyed by commercialism.

What is more, Kristie learns that Keith Amos is the same man she met while walking Gidget, an out-of-town resident’s dog. That day, Keith was walking his dog, Simon. The two hit it off and began seeing each other after Kristie’s break-up with Bill.

Now, any plans of moving forward in the relationship with Keith have been put on hold since they now have to battle each other in court. What makes matters worse, Kristie and Keith keep bumping into each other all over town.

Each time they meet, they begin to fall for each other even more. As Valentine’s Day looms ahead, Kristie finds herself losing it all — Bill, her former love interest, Gidget the dog, a romance with Keith — and she may even lose her case in court.
