From Ryan :

This is another one of those shorts where Pluto has problems with another animal. This time it is a gopher who keeps digging holes in Pluto's backyard. The gopher needs Pluto's bone to support a piece of turf and decides to steal it. Pluto, of course, is very unhappy about this. While this short is not one of my favorites, I do find the ending to be a good one. Pluto finally gets his bone back and the gopher is landing on the ground using pollen weeds as a parachute.

From Baruch Weiss :

Typical trouble between Pluto and a gopher, but at least Pluto gets the upper hand.
