Sonny wants a motorcycle, but his father has decided to buy him a dog instead, mainly because he himself wants to have a dog that he can take hunting.

Hurry, Sonny, your dad has a surprise for you.
Did he get me that motorcycle? I hope he did, but I bet he got me that durn ole pup.
Mary Lou Rogers:
Are you really scared of dogs, Sonny?
No, I'm not scared of them, but one of them bit me when I was little, and I just can't stand to touch them.

Sonny's birthday present is a dog - he wanted a motorcycle
Pardon My Pups was produced at Educational Films and runs 19 minutes. It's raining and the roof leaks waking up little Mary Lou (Temple). It's big brother Sonny's (Junior Coughlin) birthday and he wants a motorcycle their Pa wants to give him a dog. But Sonny hates dogs until he runs away from home. Sonny and Mary Lou are the same characters from Managed Money and Merrily Yours. This film was based on the story "Mild Oats" by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements. Charles Lamont also directed : Comin' Round the Mountain, Francis in the Haunted House, Hit the Ice, Salome and Where She Danced. Has mild humor and Lamont used a very light touch. No one could be offended by this offering, young Temple doesn't have a big part, but as always, steals the scene. Worth a look anyway.
