Storyline

A stray dog (whose thoughts are voiced by the narrator) looking for food goes into the city. The dog learns that the city plans to round up all stray dogs after 3 p.m. that day to be killed at the pound. With only a few hours left, the dog travels from neighborhood to neighborhood, attempting to endear himself to someone willing to take him in and save him before the deadline.

User Reviews

 
Entertaining short, athough occasionally too cute for words.

Pete Smith was a master at making shorts-often comical, sometimes serious and usually acerbic and satirical in his running commentary. Some are brilliant, such as Audioscopicks. Some were intensely cute, like this one. They were invariably good and many were nominated for Oscars, as was this one. It's about a stray dog who needs to find himself a master. The narration becomes entirely too cute for my tastes at times, but all in all, this is still a very good piece of work by a man who was very good at his craft.
