As it turns out, cats and dogs are a lot smarter and better organized than we humans think. Many of the world's dogs are actually members of an international secret organization dedicated to protecting their humans from the evil cats. Buddy was on a particularly vital case, protecting the Brody family, while Charles (Goldblum), the father of the household, finishes his formula to eliminate dog allergies. Obviously, the cats don't want that to happen, and so the Brody family needs constant protection, in the form of a dog agent disguised as the family pet.
