Mister Rogers arrives with Frisky -- his son John's dauchshund puppy. After he gives Frisky a treat, Mister Rogers explains that dauchshunds were once used to hunt badgers. He shares a film about a female dog with her puppies and sings Everybody's Fancy.

John Rogers is finger painting at Bob Trow's workshop and Mister Rogers returns Frisky to his son. As everyone looks at their fingerprints, even Frisky uses his paw to make a print on paper.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri and Lady Aberlin have a royal letter to deliver to Bob Dog on behalf of King Friday. When they cannot find him, they seek out the help of their Neighbors. At Corney's suggestion, they look at Someplace Else where they find Bob Dog with Donkey Hodie. He has run away from Make-Believe fearing that no one will want him around when the royal baby arrives. Opening the letter, Bob Dog is happy to find that King Friday would like him to serve as the royal family's watchdog.

Back at Mr. Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers talks with John about caring for Frisky, then returns to the television house where he concludes by singing I'm Taking Care of You.


At the scene transitions between the house and Bob Trow's workshop, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.
