Mad Dog is sentenced by a judge in the animal court to spend his doggoned years in
the Valley of Losers. With a steel collar locked around his neck he is chained to a little
terrier named, Snuffy, and taken in a poodle wagon to the deserted valley.
Determined not to be imprisoned, Mad Dog decides to escape and drags Snuffy, who
is sickly, with him.
Forced to stop and take refuge in a cave, Mad Dog experiences a dream that shows
him the tunnels of life, which are necessary for survival when one is lost. Awakening
and ready to move on to freedom, he finds Snuffy’s condition has worsened and
needs medical attention as soon as possible. Mad Dog makes a choice to save little
Suffy in lieu of continuing on his escape, as an example of his turned around attitude.
Back at the prison, Mad Dog is rewarded for his actions with a new name, Happy. He
then returns to his old friends to convert them to his new philosophy of life. He leads
his friends in a rap song which tells it all:
“One paw, two paw, three paw, four,
bad and angry, never more.
Our gang is happy, now to say,
We’re doing everything the right way.
Children hug and squeeze us, oh so tight,
We just close our eyes, and never bite.
Today we’re off to the nursing home,
away from the streets, never to roam.
Make them smile, and with them play,
We’re man’s best friend. Forever and a day.”
