When Nicole and Tom Mays take a cruise to Bermuda, they arrange for their friends, Hint Daniels and Jack Whitby, who don't know each other, to consecutively dog sit their schnoodle, Percy.
Hint is supposed to hand off Percy to Jack on day five of the ten days their friends are away. But at the handoff, things go wrong and the dog ends up running away. Neither is willing to tell their friends the bad news that Percy is missing so they spend the next five days together trying to find the schnoodle despite wildly different ideas on how to go about it. Their contrasting personalities clash and before long, they are as eager to kill each other as they are to find the dog. Unwilling to listen to each other, they both rely on Jack's seven-year-old niece Marguerite, who advises them on how to find the dog.
Chaos ensues before Percy's owners return. Nothing goes as planned, including Hint's and Jack's feelings for each other. By the time the schnoodle reappears, Hint and Jack are madly in love. Now it will just take the rest of their lives to learn how to live with each other.
