12 Dog Days of Christmas


And this is

our adorable crew.

Well, it'll be

wonderful working

with such beautiful ladies.

Our big mission here

is to clean up

and close up

before we all leave for

the Christmas holidays, okay?

Sounds like a plan.

Okay, so you're gonna be

mostly cleaning up.

Is that okay with you?

Oh, it's completely fine.

I have extensive experience

in cleaning products.

Even started my own brand.

Okay, so we're gonna

have you clean

one of the empty enclosures.

Ryan, do you mind

showing him how to do that?

If I must.

Well, she seems busy with

that rat creature-looking thing.

Maybe old Hillary

could show me around.

Her name's Petunia,

and she's a mixed breed,

not a rat creature.


Okay, Jack, come with me.

See you around, "Cryan".

(door closes)

Jack, you know

dinner's at 6:

Why are you always

so late?

I was working.


Is that what you call it?

Because I understood

that it was community service

for being in trouble again.

Thanks for informing

the whole table

about my life,

just in case

they didn't already know.

Come on, no need

to get smart, son.

I'm not your son, Lou,

and you're not my father.

Yeah, you've made

that clear, Jack.

It's your choice

being in and out

of fosters all the time.

Thanks for reminding me

of my sad life.

It really makes me

feel all warm inside.

Anyone want to make

Christmas cookies?

Finish your food, boys.


We love you, Jack,

don't we, Ton?

Of course.

Thanks, guys.

Glad to know

there's some love in this house.

Jack, as much

as you disagree,

we're trying

to make your life

better by what we provide.

I'm just a grocery bill

to you guys.

Believe what you want,

but we're trying

to build a family here.

I can feel the overwhelming

presence of love.

You know,
