Joe and Petie have been best friends since they were both toddlers, but now Joe has fallen in love! The money he’s been saving to buy Petie a new collar has gone to buy something for Clarabelle, Joe’s girl. Distraught, Petie takes up drinking and eventually tries to hang himself but is rescued by a dog friend of his.
Later, seeing Clarabelle pushed into the lake by a different dog, Petie tries to save her but winds up being blamed by Joe. Thankfully, an eyewitness explains the truth to Joe and Petie finally gets his new collar!
