When Tony's father complains about the pets that his son is watching for Mrs. Beam and getting paid for it, he orders Tony to get rid of them as soon as possible. So Tony looks for some of his friends to watch the pets in his place, but only succeeds in pawning off a cat and a parrot, but not the dog.
