Heart-warming family comedy about a young boy's up and down relationship with his lumbering dog, Chilly. It's the week before Christmas in sunny California and 11-year-old Bobby finds out his dad (C. Thomas Howell) has accepted a new job with the FBI in New York. That means finding a new home for Chilly, unless Bobby can house-train him in five days so he's ready for the family's new apartment. But when Bobby's plan is interrupted by a gang of high-end dog thieves, has Chilly learned enough new tricks to save the day, or will the friends be separated forever?
