Another day, another dollar.

This short is mostly sight gags. Poor Ralph! The things a wolf has to go through to earn a living and possibly to get a square meal on occasion. This one most obviously and conspicuously indicates the basic premise-that both wolf and sheepdog are just a job, you do your shift and go home. It's a living, I guess. Quite funny and well worth watching. Recommended.
