Stanley’s Party

Stanley’s people go out a lot. Stanley is a good dog, but one night, while they’re away, the temptation becomes too great and he sneaks up onto the couch. What a wonderful experience! Soon he’s also blasting the music, dancing around the living room and raiding the fridge. Stanley’s never had so much fun! But after a couple of weeks something is missing, and Stanley realizes that partying alone has lost its thrill.
