This series revolves around the domestic adventures of Doggie Daddy, a single parent dog, raising his son, Augie Doggie. Augie sometimes got his Dear Old Dad in trouble but the love between father and son usually shined through.

- Look Ma, I Am on TV!: An episode had Augie bragging to a friend that Doggie Daddy was a TV star. Owning up to it, Augie films Doggie Daddy in various and unsuccessful feats of daring with the idea of getting a TV station to show it. At the end, Doggie Daddy is not only on TV, he's in the TV.
- Missing Mom: Doggie Daddy is a single father raising his son, Augie.
- Moral Dissonance: In the Augie Doggie cartoon "Talk It Up, Pup", Augie gives Doggie Daddy the silent treatment for 24 hours because Doggie Daddy (as umpire) called Augie out on strikes to end a Little League baseball game. "It was right over the plate," Doggie Daddy states, but Augie purely believes that nepotism should have prevailed and the rule should have been waived on his behalf. Doggie Daddy's attempts to get Augie to talk results in him being hospitalized at the end, and only after the 24 hours are up does Augie start speaking to him again.
