It's the day of Jess's 'bring a pet' birthday party. Gramps is one of the first to arrive with Muckypups and Thor, two pugs he's dogsitting for the day, and AJ and Anaya have also brought their pets, a gecko called Leo and three fish, Dipper, Dapper and Dopper. Simon and Waffle put on a show for their excited guests, performing the amazing tricks Waffle has mastered. Next to arrive is Mr. Meagre and his talking parrot, Pickles. Pickles gives Waffle a run for his money when it comes to entertaining, and the two compete to be the star of the show. When everyone's attention turns to Pickles, Waffle, with the help of Simon and Doug, comes up with a plan to steal back the limelight.
