Pups Take Center Stage in Hallmark's Latest Rom-Com, 'Everything Puppies'

Who doesn't love a puppy? Even if you're a cat person (like me), puppies are still adorable and it's all you can do to stop yourself from showering them with hugs and kisses. In Hallmark Channel's latest Countdown to Summer movie, puppies take center stage. In a  Parade exclusive, actor Stephen Huszar chats with us about the film, his human co-star, Pascal Lamothe-Kipnes, and his canine co-stars.

What is Everything Puppies about?

Scarlett (Lamothe-Kipnes) is a hardworking entrepreneur and inventor looking to make it big with innovative dog toys and treats. Her latest puppy treat recipe is already all the rage with the dogs on her block, she just needs a distributor to bring her product to the masses. But she can’t land it on the shelves of any local grocers until she meets Alex (Huszar), who runs Happy Harvest and is so impressed by her product that he puts in an order and quickly sells out. As he and Scarlett work together to keep the supply of puppy treats coming, a competitor gets a whiff of her product and does everything he can to shut her down.

We asked Stephen Huszar who his favorite canine co-star was in the film. "His name was Thunder, and he was my dog on the show. We had great runs together and he let me wash him without a fuss. He was a natural!" Alex, Huszar's character in the film is an outdoorsman. We asked him what his favorite outdoor activities are and Huszar replied, "Sailing and hiking. I grew up doing both and I find so much freedom in connecting with nature’s elements."

Meet the cast of Everything Puppies

Pascal Lamothe-Kipnes (Scarlett)

Lamothe-Kipnes starred opposite Janel Parrish and Tyler Hynes in 2023's Never Been Chris'd. She has previously appeared on episodes of Charmed and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

Stephen Huszar (Alex)

Stephen Huszar is no stranger to Hallmark. He has appeared in several Hallmark Media projects including Navigating Christmas, the Ruby Herring Mysteries, and My One and Only with When Calls the Heart's Pascale Hutton. Other credits include The Flash, Letterkenny, and Continuum. 

Huszar, who had a recurring role on the last two seasons of Chesapeake Shores, shared this memory of Treat Williams,  "To work with a legend such as Treat was a great honor. He became a mentor, a father figure, and a great friend. One of the first things he did when I joined the show in season 5 was invite me over to his place for dinner. I assumed there were going to be other cast there, but when I arrived it was just me. We ate great food, drank amazing wine, and shared stories all evening. We also watched some of his classic films as he would fill me in on what it was like to star alongside some of the greatest actors that ever lived. It really touched me that he would take an entire evening to connect with me knowing that we would be working together for some time. He is dearly missed, and I cherish every moment we shared together.

And what is Huszar's favorite Hallmark film he's starred in? "It’s a tie between A Royal Christmas Crush because that’s where I met the love of my life (Huszar and co-star Katie Cassidy began dating shortly after filming A Royal Christmas Crush), and Love in Glacier National Park because I love skiing so much!
