Dog River isn’t exactly the bustling town of the prairies but residents make do with what they have. Brent owns Corner Gas and is pretty happy with his life but is often thrown into the mess of mishaps that follow his friends. Hank, his best friend from high school, is dim witted and likes to hang around Corner Gas and drink coffee. Wanda, who also works at Corner Gas, is a little too educated to be where she is but she doesn’t mind. Brent’s parents are always bickering but love each other to the end and Lacey comes from the big city. She’s just trying to figure out how this small town stuff works.
