Dog's got a twofer on his hands, but the cases couldn't be more different. The first is a woman whose family wants her back in jail, the other is a former choirboy whose family ties are strong. Darlene's been busted for third degree promotion and her sister, fed up with her behavior, wants off the bond. Dog will do his best to straighten her out but he has his doubts about making a difference. The following day is Dog's birthday but that won't stop him from chasing a fugitive named Fred who is facing firearms charges. Dog doesn't relish the thought of going after an alleged gunslinger on his birthday but he's never one to avoid a challenge. Dog's hunch is that Fred is a mama's boy, and while he has some doubts, in the end will his instincts pay off?
