Bunny comes to the conclusion that no one loves a fat bachelor, and he will go out in the fields and curtail his miserable existence at the end of a rope. Contemplating this rash step, a dog comes along, seizes the rope and makes off with it. Bunny gives chase and throws a stick at the dog. He playfully drops the rope off the bridge and picks up the stick. Bunny more miserable than ever, returns to his home. The dog follows him. Bunny sitting disconsolate in his own little room, weeps over his unhappy fate. The dog enters, looks up sympathetically at him. Bunny prepares a frugal repast and proceeds to partake of it. The dog jumps on a chair beside him. This arouses the poor bachelor's attention. He offers the dog food, but she refuses to eat until he has helped himself first. Then she accepts some. At last, the lonely man has found a companion who cares for him and his interest in life is reawakened and he continues to live on, forgetting the trials and tribulations of the past.
