But not for long! A spaniel's so smart, he can be trained in no time. Why, before he's a year old, I'll be able to take him on hunting trips. That is, uh, if you're willing to spare him, son.
Mary Lou Rogers:
Why don't you just buy him for yourself, Daddy? You're the one that wants him.

Really Shirley Temple blossomed in front of the film audience's eyes in these film shorts. In this story, she is Mary Lou Rodgers. Her brother is celebrating is birthday. The father is insisting that he gets a puppy but he's afraid of dogs in general. He must have had a traumatic experience at some time. They never really dwell into serious situations in these shorts anyway. Well, he decides to run away from home but manages somehow to overcome his fear of dogs. When the father has already bought a purebred pedigree canine puppy, the son refuses it for something else maybe beneath the standards. It's a cute story in about ten minutes. It's not the greatest sound or film quality since this short was done in the early 1930s. Shirley's adorable and precocious as the little sister who steals the film away.
