    Hank the Cowdog (MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY) recruits his fearful sidekick Drover in an impromptu investigation of a mysterious set of tracks found at the ranch, of which he believes to be none other than Pete the Barncat.

Later, Sally May returns to the ranch to show the dogs what could only be a baldheaded lizard wrapped in a pink blanket.
