Storyline

While Bob is at school she gives Rowdy to the milkman, who carries him off in triumph. Bob returns from school and his first thought is of his pet. He calls and whistles, but Rowdy does not respond. After a vain search through the house he tries the street. Here he is informed of his mother's transaction with the milkman by his little friend next door. Bob at once prepares to trail his four-footed pal. From a bill in the kitchen he learns the milkman's address, then breaking open his savings bank and taking his savings, he starts on his journey.

An unusually delightful and human story
23 March 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Bob is the very human little boy (Yale Boss) often seen in Edison pictures, and Rowdy is a new bull pup, rather destructive, like most of his kind, and inexperienced, but none the less attractive. Bob loved the dog, but his mother, sister and the cook, a very inquisitive and forth-putting individual, dislike him, and their situation and its outcome, as shown in this picture, makes an unusually delightful and human story, wholly commendable except perhaps that the character of the cook, as shown, was not convincing nor original enough to be very funny. Taken as a whole, this picture is very good. - The Moving Picture World, August 5, 1911
