Jule encounters a stray dog called Flummi. Unfortunately, pets aren’t allowed in Jule’s apartment, so she’s supposed to take him to the animal shelter. But Jule simply smuggles Flummi into the building. Too bad the landlord catches her doing it! He even threatens to kick them out. Flummi will have to go to the animal shelter after all. But in the evening, Flummi and the landlord suddenly turn up at Jule’s door. What’s going on?
