Edward ‘Ted’ Flask is in crisis. A relationship has ended and he seems to be in a downward spiral that feels out of control. Ted feels lost, abandoned, and betrayed. The one thing he does trust without reservation is Lily. She never judges, never complains, and loves him unconditionally. Lily is a dachshund. It is the love and faith they have in each other that give Ted strength. But when Lily is beset by what Ted refers to as the “octopus” he finds himself desperately trying to save the one thing he thinks can save him.
Anyone who has ever loved and lost a pet will understand and relate to Lily and the Octopus. But fair warning, keep a box of tissues nearby; they will be needed.
