Matheson and Growly are dogs belonging to Atlantic Dale constably Mike Hannity, and later looked after by Mike's ex-wife, Ruby Herringbone. They are counterparts to Stephen Hannigan and Rory Hannigan respectively from the Neverglades series. Growly is an excitable corgi and Matheson is a lazy basset hound who likes to sunbathe.

Ruby takes Matheson, dressed as Max from the Grinch movie, to Libby Lombardi's Christmas party at the Hanging Boulder. Detective Stephen Smith gets nervous around Matheson as he isn't good with dogs. Matheson ends up running after the strange figure dressed as Krampus and distracting them long enough for Smith and Ruby to apprehend the culprit, who turns out to be Smith's longtime rival, Sammy Vance, in disguise.

The dogs appear in "An Everglades Christmas." A Growly lookalike (who Mike refers to as "Growly 2") also appears briefly in "Vacation's End."
