Comments

From Ryan : Pluto is napping outside and has a run-in with a gopher. After chasing the gopher around the flower bed, Minnie comes outside and scolds Pluto. She puts the dug-up flower in a pot and takes it into her house. The rest of this short mainly involves Pluto chasing the gopher around the house. Doesn't get too interesting for me, yet I do enjoy the background art.
From Baruch Weiss : This short is not good. It's similar to Canine Caddy because in that short Pluto was playing gopher chasing and in this short Pluto is doing the same thing.
