A parable on fame and success. In his master’s eyes, “good old Shep” is the perfect dog. Shep is treated like a king. But the cat knows that he’s really a two-faced mutt who can be bought off with a bone by a burglar, and then take credit for it when the cat chases the crook off. But then Shep becomes obsessed by a newspaper story proclaiming a real canine hero the nation’s “No. 1 Dog.”
