This sitcom is about the fairly ordinary daily lives of a young couple of New Yorkers, too-nice-for-his-own-good author Paul Buchman and his assertive partner Jamie Stemple Buchman, who are almost constantly bickering and making up with each-other and just about anybody else, notably his parents, siblings, friends and all kinds of staff, even their dog Murray and his dog-walker.

Murray is the Buchmans' Border Collie mix dog and a fan favorite, because the dog the show's crew settled on late into the first season followed instructions very well. He was a puppy when Paul found him, and Paul met Jamie while walking him. He sometimes chases an invisible mouse, and ends up banging his head against something. In a later episode, Jamie does discover the "real" mouse that Murray has been chasing. In the two-part series finale, The Final Frontier, adult Mabel says that Murray died when she was six, but she was not told until she was twelve. Murray is generally portrayed as loyal and affectionate, albeit thick-skulled.
Murray was played by "Maui." Originally found in a Castaic, California, animal shelter by noted Hollywood animal trainer Boone Narr, Maui weighed 58 pounds and was also primarily trained by Betty Linn. His first assignments came in TV commercials and as the backup for the top dog in the feature film "Bingo."
