The most important book about ham theft you will ever read.

Follow Maximus Gary, Labrador Saboteur and his hand-picked cadre of talented dogs as they execute the most daring heist of the century-- the Biped's coveted Christmas ham and all the trimmings.

Labrador Retrievers Maximus Gary, Auggie, Small Head Teddy, and Big Dumb Buddy navigate a bustling house packed with guests during the course of a most unusual Christmas Eve. Guest wiener dogs Ginger and Zeus prove invaluable when Max's well-engineered plan devolves into chaos, proving to the Labradors that size does not matter when one possesses a brave heart or giant, radar-like ears.

The newly-bonded pack celebrates briefly before being confronted by a mortal threat it could never have foreseen-- a historical and repeated enemy coming from the deep woods outside their cozy Maine home. No Biped could possibly help them. Only leadership, brute force, brave hearts, and innocence can save their newly-established pack.
