About Dog Sees God:
A dark and brutally honest twist to the well-known Peanuts comic strip, Dog Sees God centers around CB, a high school bully, who has to put down his beloved beagle after a rabid rampage. In his depression, CB unexpectedly connects with Beethoven, a childhood friend who has become the target of his group’s homophobic bullying. CB thinks he’s found both a relationship and a means to rebel against his predictable doormat persona...but he may have to lose everything to gain peace of mind.
