They finally find him an ideal shelter, a huge abandoned hotel that Bruce transforms thanks to his engineering genius. In what has become an incredible paradise for dogs, Friday is soon joined by all kinds of furry friends, so many in fact that their barks alert the neighbors... . Andi and Bruce will have to call on all their friends and all their imagination to stop the hotel's secret from being discovered.
