3:51 pm
look at that tail going. he's climbing all over this person's lap, but he solves the mystery of the box next to them. just watch. >> oh, man. >> oh. >> that didn't work out how they planned. >> it's so funny, the other dog is like buster? buster? let me get help. buster is stuck in a box. >> buster unfazed after that. >> i'm okay. paw's all right. four paws on the ground. we're cool. ♪ >> so, this dude gulps an icee, gets a brain freeze and attempts to deliver presents. >> great. >> but wait until you see what happ man!
