One day when Dad goes away for work the dog decides to take over by dressing as Dad. He demands breakfast just like Dad, he takes the family on a picnic just like Dad would (but he drives with his head out the window (unlike Dad). For dinner he barbeques just like dad, but he won't make hot dogs! At the end of the day he brings himself Dad's newspaper and slippers. So, will the Cat dress like Mum tomorrow? A hilarious look at family relationships as can only be seen when really weird things start to happen.
