Laurel and Hardy have some trouble with a landlord who does not allow their dog. The dog is names Laughing Gravy. When the landlord discovers the dog he throws him out on the street in the cold snow. Laural and Hardy have to rescue the dog and make sure the landlord doesn't find out. You can understand the mayhem they will cause.
The typical Laurel and Hardy humor, which is quite amusing, is a little too predictable here. This short gets funnier near the end, but the first half wasn't that good. Well, one little surprise was funny in that first half. Still, I enjoyed it.
