Storyline

Disgusted by the unsanitary conditions of the flat in which she lives, Patty Gordon, a pretty young artist, writes anonymously to John Richardson, asking him to investigate the conditions of his tenements. Plainly dressed, Richardson goes down to the tenements and rents an apartment for himself, so that he may see firsthand whether or not there is cause for complaint. He is accompanied by his dog, Dick, a valuable thoroughbred collie, who, seeing Patty's door open, enters and makes friends with her. Patty paints a picture of Dick, which she intends to enter in a coming competition. She ties a note to Dick's collar addressed to his master, asking his permission to exhibit the picture of his dog. Richardson sends back another note saying, "yes," and in gratitude Patty sends back to him, the dog again acting as messenger, a sketch of the animal. Richardson at once goes to call on her with his thanks and a strong friendship grows up between them. One day when Richardson is out for a walk ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A collie, Shep by name, is featured
18 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this story by Elizabeth Peterson a collie, Shep by name, is featured. The dog brings together an owner of tenements who under an assumed name has come to live in his own building, and a woman who has written to him a letter complaining of the condition of the property. Earle Williams and Naomi Childers have the leads. Both make the most of the story, which is a pretty one. and will interest. Frederick Thomson directs the picture. - The Moving Picture World, September 27, 1913
