The stooges run a pet hospital and get an important patient, Garcon, a rich ladies poodle. When dognappers posing as reporters steal the poodle, the boys are in a tough spot. First they try to fool their client by disguising a mutt as the poodle. When that doesn't work, they use the mutt as a bloodhound to track down the crooks. When they discover the bad guys hideout, Curly defeats them in a fight and they find Garcon, only to discover that "he" has had a litter of puppies. Written by

This is a the only time, in all of the shorts, the Stooges play white-collar workers, in this case doctors, rather then the typical blue-collar workers. See more »

Calling Dr. Curly. Calling Dr. Curly.
What do you want?
Listen, you onion head, you march yourself in here and wash that dog.
Oh, you do it yourself.
Oh, mutiny, eh?
Yeah, and it's not out on the bounty.
[sticks out tongue and gets punched through loud speaker by Moe]
[sticks head out of loudspeaker]
Now come in here like I told you.
[Curly starts to leave]

Hey, what a minute. I'm stuck.

Our three favorite goofs are veterinarians, if you can believe it, and are still the same slap- happy saps who are silly but fun to watch. We get sight gags right from the start as Curly swallows soap and then blows bubbles out of his mouth.
Anyway, after a bunch of typical Stooges clowning, mostly corny stuff, their three beautiful assistants prepare them with surgical clothing, and we see that it's a black poodle who will be their prey, er subject for operation. Apparently, "Garcon" belongs to a rich lady named "Bedford" and their "operation" is simply taking a thorn out of the dog.
Later, the boys give two reporters a humorous tour of the facility, with the drunken lap dog, the garbage can moocher with a bad case of "scavengeritus," and other corny comments. After the tour, the reporters turn out to be "dognappers, taking "Garcon" and holding him for a ransom.
There are many Stooge-like sight gags in this short and some still made me laugh, even though I've seen them hundreds of times. I liked Moe going through the intercom, the dogs all dressed with bibs sitting at the dinner table, the dog-bone sandwich biting Curly, the maid "scalping" Garcon, Moe being used as a punching bag, etc.
Goofy? Yes, but still funny. In fact, if you wanted to show someone what the Stooges were all about, this one would provide a good demonstration.
