Hoping the clever canine will lead them to his master's gold, a trio of hapless outlaws plan to dog-nap Walter, Otis the prospector's best friend, after the old man goes on a brief vacation and temporarily leaves the pup with Hoss at the Ponderosa.
In the comic sequel to last season's Any Friend of Walter's, Hoss dog-sits Walter at the Ponderosa while Obie's away.
Dimwitted criminals Macie, Teague, and Willard are again after Obie's supposed treasure. Their plot this time is to kidnap the dog and hold him for ransom. It's a good thing Walter outsmarts the criminals because Hoss and Obie get caught in their own trap.
