Beau has never met anyone he doesn’t want to lick. Ben is wary of love. Beau finds opportunity around every corner. Ben hides in the shadows of shame.
Life on All Fours is a love story framed by loss and narrated by one whose four paws are firmly on the ground. Ben Walker lives in San Francisco. It’s 1997, and after nearly two decades of AIDS devastation, finally, there may be reasons to hope. Ben, his ex-wife, Judy, and their mutual best friend, Anthony, struggle in a complicated triangle of love and personal history to create family. Into the mix tumbles Beau, an eight-week-old Field Spaniel who bears witness to the human drama that swirls around him. From down here anything is possible.
Life on All Fours is two stories but one shared journey—a dog and a man, and the hearts they touch along the way.
