Former tobacco company employee Harry Burton leaves for Washington, D.C. to testify against his former employer in a lawsuit that could deliver a serious blow to the tobacco industry. Harry and his wife say good-bye to their son, Charlie, and dogs, Samson and Hercules, and depart for the airport. Two hired thugs sneak into the house and grab Charlie to force his father into altering his testimony. Their plans are quickly thwarted by the two dogs.
Through a hilarious battle of obstacles and traps, using every bone, fishing pole, and electric mixer within their paw reach, the dogs turn the tables on the thugs, saving Charlie and allowing Harry to give his testimony...honestly.
