Can you explain which meaning "on the action" has. The text is:

She hugged us one more time, and Pippin and Frodo danced at our feet, wanting in on the action.

I can guess "wanting in on the action" is meaning "wanting a command", because Pippin and Frodo are dogs. Or I can guess "wanting in on the action" is meaning "wanting in an attention from their master". Or even I can guess "wanting in on the action" is meaning "wanting in the state free from any action" in analogy "put it on loudspeaker".

Can you correct me.

No, none of these are close.

"The action" is whatever is going on - in this case, presumably the hugging. Pippin and Frodo wanted to join in.
