Who's there?

I know someone is out there.

Show yourself coward.

That looks good.

I wonder who put that there?

Hey where's the dog?

Keep quiet.

Hello my beauty.

The bone works like

a charm every time.

Come on. Let's get out of here.

Who are those guys?

Oh boy,

I'm really in the doghouse now.



I heard something downstairs.

- Mama.

- Columbus. It isn't Santa.

Christmas is still a day away.

I know! This is something else.

I sense danger.



We're not watch dogs.

Nobody is robbing the house.


You heard that, right?

Yeah but...


Do not fear young madden.

Your hero has arrived.



She's trapped

in one of these packages.


Mama. I want to pee.

Poor thing soiled herself.

Quick, before she runs out of air.

Columbus, it's a doll.



Bone, what did you do?


Give him some love.

Give him some love.

Here sit down baby. Yes!

He brought down the whole tree.

It was savaged!

Opened all the presents.

Nope. We called this year.

The nerf Bazooka?

Are you kidding me?

My parents have gone mental.

I would have canceled

the whole holiday.

Not that it would have

mattered that much.

There's barely been

any snow this year.

It doesn't feel very Merry anyway.

I'm telling you Hunter, this is

going to be the worst Christmas ever!

Dylan, a moment?

I'll catch you later.

Thank you. Umm,

Look. I'm sorry guys

but Bone can't come with us

to Grandma's this year.

She's getting too old

and we can't risk Bone

knocking her down

or ripping up her furniture.

He's been acting wild lately.

So he's going to stay at the Kennel

and that's how it's got to be.

I have to put my foot down.

I am the boss.

I am the head of this house hold.

But Dad!

But we just moved to this house,

he's gonna freak out.

- Well...

- Yeah.

Guys it's only a week.

Bone will be fine.

Those Kennels

are like prison camps.

Mean brutal mutts.

I hear that if a dog

enters the big house

wearing a sweater

he'll get shanked.

Won't he be lonely?

We will be back

before he even knows we left.

And Columbus will keep

the rest of us company.

Okay. I guess.

I hope Bone packs a sharp

chew stick.

Now, we have a long drive

ahead of us,

so get washed,

dressed, and pack up.

And don't leave

any food out for the mice.

I don't want this house destroyed.

Before we have a chance

to destroy it ourselves.

Oh and use

the shower downstairs please.

The hot water knob is still broken.

This house has old pipes.

Move it on out.

The faster we get to grandma

and grandpa's,

- the faster we get eggnog.

- Yay! Eggnog. Eggnog. Eggnog.

What's Eggnog?

I'm so sorry

that I ruined Christmas.

Got a few bad dogs

and a newspaper to the nose.

No biggy. I can handle it.

But aren't you mad

you're not going to grandma's?

Thought this was just a time out.

I'm going to miss

the big turkey dinner.

I'm the worst brother ever.

Look, you're just new here.

You don't understand our place.

Don't try to be

something you're not.

- A hero.

- Yeah.

I know. I just thought...

You see a beware of dog sign

outside this house?


That's cause we're family pets.

Our jobs are simply

to fetch the paper and...

take them on brisk walks.

You're right.

And from this day on I promise

to never act like a watchdog again.


I got it! Guys hurry up!

- Oh! Happy Holidays.

- Hi!

- You must be the new owners.

- Yes.

I saw you had a hold

on your mail so I, here.

- Really?

- Yeah.

I saw you move in the other week.

I got a

pricy looking package for you.

Somebody stayed of

the naughty list this year I see.
