The entire family runs upstairs to discover that Bella has been dognapped. As the family stands outside bickering about the incident, Zeus runs off to find Bella. Later, Randy finally admits to George that his life is in shambles and sobs on his shoulder until George says he’s uncomfortable with the man-on-man affection. When did George have a sex change?
The front desk agent can’t understand why he should have to tell his staff to watch out for runaway dogs until a distraught Randy snatches him up, drags him over the desk and says his wife left him, she took their daughters with her, he has nowhere to live and Bella is one of the last things he has left in this life. He’s not going to let anything happen to her. Someone needs to call PETA. Poking poodles is as bad as stepping on cockroaches in their eyes.
Zeus has sniffed Bella out. He rescues her and then sets a few traps for Ted and Stewey. They get caught up in each one. I imagine they weren’t too good at getting out of the prison library without falling into gang rap traps either.
George and Randy follow Zeus’ footprints in the snow. George takes this opportunity to apologize to Randy and remind him that they’re family. Randytells George that Dottie said he’s selfish, self-absorbed, rude, and trying to be something that he isn’t. He sobs while reading George the apology letter he’s written her. George steals the letter from Randy’s jacket. How mature. What’s next, sending Dottie a letter with checkboxes labeled “Yes, I will stay with Randy,” and “Hell-to-the-naw, I’m through with this asshole.”
If Ted can’t get the necklace off of Bella, he says he’ll cut her head off. While he and Stewey are on a food run, Zeus finds Bella. He pries her lock open and then lays a trap for the thieves. He then lures them away from Bella by turning on a TV show with a police siren sounding so loud that it makes Ted and Stewey bolt from the room. If they were wearing wife beaters and high on crack it would’ve been like an episode of COPS. For the thousandth time during this movie, Ted and Stewey fall down. Zeus frees Bella. She smacks a wet one on Zeus to thank him for the rescue and the two try to outwit the thieves and escape back to the condo. Compared to Ted and Stewey, the dogs are Rhodes Scholars yet somehow Zeus and Bella both end up trapped by the dumb duo.
We’re one fuck up away from ending up on America’s Dumbest Criminals.
The dogs leap out of the thieves’ hands when they see Trooper who commands them to “leave my friends alone.” Bella and Zeus thank him. For what, having a deep voice? Trooper graciously decides to let Zeus have Bella. It looks more to me like he just chickened out because he wanted out of all this drama.
