When Mireya Navarro got married she braced herself for step-kids, not a step-dog. It seemed like more than anyone else in the family, Eddie the dog had a problem with the new arrangement. He was acting out. Not eating shoes or biting people—he didn’t bother with anything so obvious—he had a stealthier mission: to ruin a marriage.
