An unlikely duo joins forces with some unusual friends to solve a series of mysterious neighborhood burglaries. Why is this so unusual you might ask? The duo is a dog and cat. The team is created of dogs, cats, squirrels, and birds. This is not your typical dog and cat story. These are not your typical backyard animals. Not only is someone threatening to harm the pets' owners and their property, but one character is having problems of his own with a dishonorable rat. Bear and Mel will make you laugh with them at the characters they encounter, and cry at the depths of their friendship. New friendships are made, and old friendships are bonded even tighter. Bear and Mel will show the world how to love, share, forgive, and become heroes despite their differences.
