After a strange dream, Dr. Marsha spends some time with Vita and Junie at the beach. Dr. Marsha tells the documentary filmmaker that she is reconsidering her career and life choices. Eventually we see whether she can truly embrace her own vita bella, and find out what happens to everyone in the finale to the seven episode Vita Bella: The Dogumentary.
In this fun mockumentary, Vita, a camera-phobic dog, takes her flighty but loving owner, Junie , and a pet psychologist with hidden talents, Dr. Marsha Mayright, on an often hilarious journey exploring the many possible reasons for Vita’s fear. Along the way, they uncover a thwarted pet assassin, explore the world of makeovers and self-esteem, deal with a fame-hungry ‘pup-arazzo’ and encounter a ‘bow-wowist’ who believes Vita is the reincarnation of his sect’s Lama. These adventures, which strike a balance between wacky and sublime, include a slapstick search for a lost Vita, a bicycle chase, dog park mayhem and a frazzled squirrel. Eventually, through all this, Dr. Marsha and Junie realize their individual gifts and so find their way to living a “vita bella.”
