In this novel, Dog Man loses his badge after digging up the Mayor's roses, disguises himself as a cat-headed man to become a cop again, and gets reinstated to the force after rescuing the Mayor's beloved stuffed animal from a fire. Meanwhile, Dog Man's friend Lil' Petey teaches his father the power of forgiveness as they figure out how to cope with the villainous Grampa and a huge animated lunch bag. The novel's main themes are the power of love and forgiveness, good versus evil, and remaining true to one's nature.
