Harry is a dog that just hates baths! When he hears his family running the bath, he takes his brush, digs a hole in the back yard, buries it, and runs away. He plays in the dirtiest places he can find until he turns from a white dog with black spots into a black dog with white spots. Then he's all tuckered out and wants to go back home, but his family doesn't recognize him. He tries doing all his old tricks, but it's no use. Dejected, Harry is about to leave when he remembers that he'd hidden his scrubber out in the yard. He digs it back up and runs to the bathtub, eager to be bathed for once. His family obligingly washes him, and they are amazed when all the dirt is off and they see that it is their beloved Harry.
