Synopsis
An exuberant dog that growls, barks, and shows his teeth at the slightest provocation convinces his owner to take him on a walk. The dog pulls on the leash as they head for the park. Once there, a series of animals (a bug, a bluebird, a mole, and others) as well as a flower attack the dog’s owner while the dog is always late or ineffective in performing his guardian duties. Will all end well as the dog escorts his owner home?
