PIERRE OF THE BIG TOP

An off the beaten track circus story adds another picture to Col. Meek's collection of animal portraits, this time of a poodle who belongs to a hand balancer. Born right under the big top during a show and to Jeanne, a member of Canon's Canine Cutups, Pierre is given to Frank, the hand balancer, who rescues Jeanne and her pups after they've been born. At first Frank decides not to train his dog in the regular way, but when two crooks become responsible for an injury to his arm he teaches Pierre to be the important part of his show. As things develop, Pierre is instrumental in exposing the crooks later and Frank, his shoulder healed, can look forward to a future with Pierre as a real partner.
