Below is the text of the trailer video:

My dog’s name is Kyro. My name is Steve. Just like Kyro himself, this documentary will be a positive, hopeful, and uplifting look at the companionship and loss of a beloved pet. An interesting part of this journey is that I didn't plan any of it; it all just "happened" because of Kyro.

Kyro’s start was rough, but he was resilient. He was born into a puppy-mill environment and suffered abuse from a crazy dog sitter.  His first person, struggling with mental health challenges, could no longer care for him. I was a neighbor and even though I wasn't planning on having a dog, I agreed to adopt this five-year-old Husky.

Kyro was initially skittish and timid. But I helped him feel safe and he became relaxed and full of life. Out of the blue, strangers remarked, “Your dog is an old soul,” or “I see energy flying out of your dog.”

Unexpectedly, at Home Depot on Sunset Boulevard, an animal agent said she could find entertainment work for Kyro. I thought it was a scam, but soon, he was working alongside Cameron Diaz, Linkin Park, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and many others.

A filmmaker friend and I thought Kyro would be great in a film. We developed a crime thriller with Kyro being a living breathing example of unconditional love, being in-the-moment, and handling challenges gracefully.

Our connection seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, so I dedicated the next seven years to making Kyro’s film a reality. We came close to securing financing three times; however, getting a film made is very difficult.

Just six weeks after a complete and successful check-up, Kyro passed away suddenly at age 13 ½ from an aggressive, fast-moving cancer.

I was devastated. Kyro was a small nuclear reactor of positive, calming energy. And suddenly, he was gone. However, I may have been prepared for his passing.

A year prior, during an animal spirit-guide meditation in Hollywood, a participant described a visit from a white-wolf-like animal with blue eyes. Another attendee asked if she knew Kyro and showed her his Instagram. I did not know either of these women at the time and this synchronicity introduced me to the world of animal communication.

After Kyro passed, I finally scheduled a session, and the animal communicator relayed that Kyro was an old soul and his energy filled the room. Also, Kyro was very relaxed and comfortable as he’d communicated like this many times before.

At the end of the session, I asked, “We have lots of footage of Kyro—should I tell his story as a documentary, or just drop it?” Kyro communicated, yes, make the film as he came to teach unconditional love. He also said he could help from the other side in ways he couldn't as a dog.

Next, I traveled to Joshua Tree to spread Kyro's ashes. I spent two days searching for a specific location from a picture. Both evenings, I went to the Joshua Tree Saloon, and ordered a Stella Artois beer and some food.

On the third day, I finally found the spot. I went to spread his ashes exactly where his front paws were in the photograph, but I saw two rusty bottle caps. I flipped them over and they both read Stella Artois. I smiled and strongly felt that Kyro was urging me to lighten up, we’re still together, we’re like two guys having a beer and some laughs.

This project is a story within a story as I explore Kyro's continued presence and influence from the other side. Ultimately, this film is a tribute to Kyro, showing that I paid close attention to him, listened to him, and learned from him. I'm creating this project in the spirit of how Kyro lived: with joy and fun, staying in the moment, and having a positive and uplifting outlook and attitude.
