Description

Stanley's Party may have come to an end ... but our favorite party animal's back and ready to roll!

Stanley knows he's not supposed to leave the yard, but he's dog-tired of it. So when he discovers a way out ... he's gone! A few escapes later, five dogs are on the lam. And with Stanley in the lead, they're off to have the kind of fun you can't find in a yard --- chasing tomcats, sampling tasty garbage and soaking fire hydrants.

Then, late at night, atop the steepest hill in town, they come upon a mysterious wheeled ... thing. And before you can say “Hot dog!” Stanley's off on the ride of a lifetime!
