Storyline

A young married couple, desirous of getting next to nature for a few days, outfit themselves with a camping kit and start to rough it in the fields and woods, depending upon their skill in fishing and hunting for their own rations. In the beginning this appears to be quite a lark and lots of fun, but as time goes on and they "get up against it," the fish won't bite, the game is nowhere in sight, and their provisions run out. They are in a bad way for food. Their bones ache and they are pretty nearly all in. Here is where they find their faithful dog, Jean, a friend in need. He starts out foraging and soon returns with a fine rabbit, which they cook and find very relishable. He brings them "eats" from all directions and keeps them well supplied with the necessaries of life. Jean is always on the job, and the way he finds the stuff is a caution. Even with Jean's assistance things get worse and worse, until they give up their exploit in despair and disgust and make their way toward home,... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This film is meritorious because of the excellent acting of the dog
22 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of camping which has its humorous side, though perhaps it comes sufficiently near to the truth of camping stories to acquire more than a humorous interest. The intelligence of the dog is attractive. When fish refused to bite and game refused to come within range of the gun, Jean, the collie, goes out and succeeds in securing sufficient to keep the two unfortunate campers alive. Eventually they tire of even Jean's foraging ability and return home, poorer in pocket and flesh and much wiser. This film is meritorious because of the excellent acting of the dog. What happened to the people is the common lot of many campers, but not all have such a dog to assist them out of their difficulties. The scenery is attractive, representing numerous phases of outdoors which would naturally prove a setting for such a picture. The photographer chose his view points with discretion and the printer did his work with care, retaining much of the gradation of tone and the values of the outdoor scenes. - The Moving Picture World, November 5, 1910
