Fall is not Kito's favorite time of year -- too many strange smells and spooky sightings. All of it makes Kito nervous: Something bad is going to happen.
At the fire hydrant his fears are confirmed. Missy and Muffin are missing! No one's seen them for days. They could have just wandered off, but Kito doesn't believe it. When four puppies also disappear, Kito is sure they've been dog-napped!
Kito, Chester, and the rest of the Dog Watch team set out to find the dog-napper and rescue their friends -- before it's too late!
