On Thanksgiving Wednesday, sixty year old Baby Boomer Jon Pointen receives an extraordinary but unsolicited purchase offer for his self-built automotive empire. His heart screams 'no' but his mind surrenders to 'yes'. A decision is due in Five Days.

~~~What's a dog to do when his human is morose? Spike decides to demonstrate happiness but understand despair~~~

With a wry twinkle in his eyes, Jon runs his three garages and his life. Jon's employees flourish under his respect and his customers value his quality workmanship. At home, Jon's family treasures his gentle touch with human relations. Spike, the cocker spaniel, adores Jon - in part because Jon slips him treats. Jon's world is built upon these images and the potential sale throws a monkey wrench into the works.

~~~A warm basket, good snacks, chew bones, and playtime are the cornerstones of Spike's life. Tomorrow is a thought - today is a joy - yesterdays are dim scents. Spike watches Jon's mental rotations with sorrow but steadily steers him towards comprehending life's true meaning~~~
