At a Good Ol' Dogs Club meeting Bino announces that his brother, Fido, is returning from the academy, too which everyone immediately charges out of the clubhouse to make preparations. Max and Marvin watch from outside, and Max gets trampled by the swarm of dogs. Grape notices the crowd gathering and asks Fox whats going on. As it turns out Fido is "the" dog. All the boys have him as a role-model, and all the girls are crazy for him.
Bino is not pleased with the crowd, as he is tired of living in his brother's shadow. He makes a speech claiming that Fido is an awful person... just as Fido gets back. The crowd embraces Fido in cheer, but he tells them to stop. Fido says he is tired and just wants to rest. He also claims that they shouldn't congratulate him on his success, as he is just following his duty as a dog. Bino goes to saying that Fido is trying to act humble to look good, but Grape knocks him out with a frying pan.
Grape returns home and informs Peanut of Fido's return. Peanut convinces Grape to take him to take him to Fido, due to Peanut using "puppy eyes".
Bino awakens in a bed surrounded by his friends; Fox and Rex. They inform him that they were about ready to knock him out just as Grape did. Bino thanks them saying that if they "care enough to smack me over the head when I go crazy" that's true loyalty.
Grape and Peanut arrive outside Fido's room, and find him returning home to his girlfriend; Sabrina, a cat. Peanut perversely takes a picture of them kissing. Peanut and Grape agree never to speak of it.
