Wendy is building an enclosure for the local dog show, which Farmer Pickles has entered Scruffty into. When Scoop sees Scruffty perform his tricks, he becomes determined to enter Pilchard - disregarding everyone who tells him that cats can't enter dog shows. His attempts to teach Pilchard tricks meet with feline indifference, and hilarity from the other Machines. So Scoop takes Pilchard up to the enclosure to practice, while Wendy joins Bob who is building a barn at the farm. Pilchard starts chasing mice, and Scoop runs after her, but his scoop gets tangled in the banner over the gate - he daren't move in case everything comes crashing to the ground. He whistles hard - and for once Pilchard responds. He sends her to get help, and she dashes off to find Bob and crew. Thanks to Pilchard, Scoop is rescued and as a reward he is allowed to enter Pilchard in the show, where she is declared a unanimous winner.
