Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Little Orvie is a small boy whose stern father and by-the-book mother refuse to buy a dog. Orvie befriends a stray mutt, which of course follows him home and just won't leave. Failing to keep the dog's presence a secret, Orvie is ordered to give up the canine. Orvie's dad finally weakens his resolve and reveals himself to be a sentimentalist.
