Ezra starts a new case report from the inbestigators, saying that an investigator should always be on the alert, because a crime can happen under everyone's noses, where he starts talking about Miss Tan. Soon, his sister Poppy interrupts him, asking if she has committed a crime, and he says that she could listen if she did not interrupt him, and also denies the fact that Miss Tan has committed a crime. Soon, Ezra resumes the account, saying that Miss Tan last week announced that the Animal Shelter would come to school to do a commercial the next day, which started to get everyone excited, and most of them raised their hands to say that they will bring the animal to school, where Miss Tan says that they will have to bring the form filled out by those responsible. Ezra raises her hand, asking if anyone with allergies to dogs and cats can stay, which surprises Miss Tan. Poppy interrupts by replying that he is actually afraid of dogs, but Ezra says the story is about people and their pets.

Amelia, as an example of people who are crazy about their pets, talks to Miss Tan who already signed her greyhound form, Loopy, and is excited that Miss Tan has to see him, and starts telling the story of her dog, where she starts to interrupt Miss Tan, until she tells her to stop, which makes Amelia sad. Soon, Miss Tan reminds everyone that the shelter will only choose a few students and their pets, because there won't be room for all the dogs and cats, and Kyle interrupts, saying that he can bring a Meixan Walking Fish, where Miss Tan concludes that some will stay. outside, which saddens everyone, since they really wanted to spend in the commercial.

Everyone, excitedly, starts to give Miss Tan the suggestion to bring her animals, if the shelter will want, like the rabbits of Ava and Pixie, and Kyle's Mexican Walking Fish in a tupperware pot, where Miss Tan responds to all. Soon, Miranda asks if they are going to have HMU, where she leaves Miss Tan confused, and she replies that it means Hair and Makeup, where Ezra explains that she has already been on television in a detergent commercial, where Miss Tan sees that it is the last straw for her, and tells everyone to calm down because everyone is excited about the commercial. Miss Tan asks Maudie if she has a pet, where she replies that she plays with the cat that is near her dad's office because he always forgets to eat the sandwich, but the same question asks if she will bring a pet, where she denies it, which makes Miss Tan consider her and Ezra as animal coordinators, which leaves Ezra shocked that she ignored the fact that he is allergic to dogs and cats.

The next day, Ezra and Maudie start interviewing Miranda, asking her dog's name, where Miranda replies that his name is cookie, a greyhound, and Maudie asks Ezra to look at the number on his collar, where Ezra, afraid, refuses, even though Maudie says that greyhounds are docile, but Ezra considers them very tall, and to make her allergies worse, she had one more greyhound, Amelia's, Loopy, and she is surprised to see that Miranda has a greyhound and asks to go with her to the greyhounds club on Thursdays, where Miranda, in response, says she has theater on Thursdays. Ezra interrupts, telling Amelia to stay in line with the others so as not to cause an animal riot due to her allergy, where she returns to the line, and Maudie resumes asking where is Cookie's guide, where Miranda replies that she thought bringing the tape would be really cute for the commercial.
