Dr. Eric Mason is a self-controlled man who teaches how to get control over one's own life. Six months earlier, his wife died suddenly in an inexplicable car accident. Now his best friend, Dr. Charles Hunter, dies when Eric's two Doberman pinschers, Laurel and Hardy, suddenly tear him apart in Eric's kitchen while Eric is away. Lt. Columbo love dogs and needs to figure out what happened before Laurel and Hardy are put down and Dr. Mason gets away with murder. Written by

Did You Know?
Rosebud, the sled made for Orson Welles's classic 1941 film ''Citizen Kane,'' was one of three balsa versions made for the final scene of the movie. It happens to be the only one that survived the filming; the other two were burned in filming a scene in which a workman tosses the sled into a furnace. See more
Right after the murder, we see the caged van that will take away the dogs to the lockup until their fate is decided by the judge. Before being locked up, the two Dobermans, that less than an hour earlier devoured a man for seemingly no reason, are allowed to jump all over Columbo as he arrives, with no leash or guard in sight.
