|C'mon Get Happy!||Gallery||Transcript|
Bessie and Happy plan to celebrate the anniversary of becoming best friends. However, Bessie keeps nagging Happy to do everything from picking a DJ set list to making sure he looks his best at the ceremony, while all Happy wants to do is relax.
Frustrated with Bessie, Happy then goes to a bar for dogs where he eats multiple ribs in one sitting. While there, he meets a girl named Roxy, who is singing karaoke. Meanwhile, Bessie is waiting for Happy to show up at the ceremony, and is upset at Happy standing her up.
Later that night, Happy and Roxy came home after a great time to then see Bessie being angry because Happy missed the ceremony of them being best friends.
After an argument, Happy makes Roxy his new BFFAEAE (best friend forever and ever and ever) and leaves Bessie in favor of going with Roxy to the airport, devastating Bessie. With Happy now gone, Bessie starts auditioning for a new best friend and pet.
Happy and Roxy board an airplane wearing leis. However, K.G. Bianca soon appears on the plane's monitor, and it turns out she used Roxy to lure him into the plane, hoping to recruit him back to the S.H.A.D.O.W. (Seriously Hardcore Attack Dogs Operating Worldwide) organization. Meanwhile, although Bessie is about to announce her new best friend, she breaks down and professes how much she misses Happy.
Bessie and Happy soon communicate with each other telepathically, eventually finding out that K.G. Bianca kidnapped Happy on the plane. When she is informed, she rides on a duck (who had auditioned to be Bessie's pet) and flies it to the plane. Bessie then discovers Happy tied up, and attempts to save her best friend. K.G. Bianca, Roxy, and the other dogs were surprised at her presence, but fight back against the girl.
The fight continues until Bessie opened the back door, sending K.G. Bianca and the other dogs flying out of the plane and into the ocean. Still on the plane, Bessie and Happy make up and ultimately decide to have a quick friendship ceremony in Las Vegas, ending the series on a happy note.
