On an extremely cold winter day, a dog is looking for shelter, from the frigid snow on the ground. It first tries another dog's house, a bird's nest and even a turtle's shell. The dog is thrown out from all three. Then it finds and sneaks into a cabin with an open fireplace and a cozy bed. But he has a stinky rival for occupancy of the cabin - an unnamed skunk, (but not Pepe Le Pew). The dog and skunk combat each other by spraying the other with scents. The skunk with his foul odor tail, and the dog with cologne. Both run outside and dive into a frozen lake, so the smell doesn't bother its nose and both catch a cold in the process. The sneezing dog and skunk then decide to stop fighting and become friends. Then they share the bed in the cabin. However, this did lead to Pepe Le Pew's creation.
