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 the father of the household (Goldblum) 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.

** And [[PyrrhicVictory the research was probably lost]] when the factory exploded.


Added DiffLines:

* DeathTrap: A rare [[JustifiedTrope justified]] case -- Mr. Tinkles ''was'' planning to [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim shoot the Brodys]] once he'd tested the new formula on Scott, but his minions had acquired a toy gun instead, and in his anger he set off a chain of DisasterDominoes that started a fire by accident. Deciding that was a good enough Plan B, he left them to burn.


Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: With all the resources the dogs have, and a mission to protect humans, attempting to rescue the Brodys wasn't even considered -- it came down to a vote to either surrender the research or let them die.


Added DiffLines:

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Although they don't know it, the cats can be assured that the research [[spoiler:Lou hands over to them]] is the only copy, and Prof. Brody doesn't know how to recreate it because the breakthrough happened by accident. This probably means that it's lost forever once the factory blows up.
