  • Uncle Joe has a new scheme to make money. Get a buffalo, take it to the Shady Rest, and sportsmen will follow.

  • When Kate sends Uncle Joe to the grocery store to buy some meat for the stew she's making for dinner, she expects he may forget. What she doesn't expect is the type of meat he comes home with: a real live buffalo he purchased from the government, all sales final. He did so when he read that Lord Harold D. Faversham, who has just returned from Africa, has hunted for every type of big game worldwide except for the great American buffalo. So Uncle Joe wrote to him extolling the greatness of the wild buffalo hunting at the Shady Rest "Hunting Lodge", he who has made a $50 down payment for a $175 week stay at the Shady Rest complete with hunting guide i.e. Uncle Joe. The problem may be that the buffalo is as wild as Dog is, with the girls wanting to keep him as a pet. A further problem arises when Uncle Joe spooks the buffalo, who runs off, leaving Lord Faversham nothing to hunt for. So Uncle Joe has to try to stall Lord Faversham's want to hunt, while making him think he really is in the middle of the wild buffalo hunting process, and while the girls, to the contrary, try to protect their new pet.
