In this story, the protagonist, a dog, talks about how his mom is doing strange things with her body and trying to involve him. Despite initially resisting, he decides to give it a try because there are treats involved. The dog hopes that this will get him attention from a poodle in the neighborhood. As he participates in the activities, which involve dancing and jumping through a circle of arms, the dog realizes that he is actually having fun. He believes that these moves will impress the poodle, even though bringing her a dead squirrel didn't work. In the end, the dog is glad he learned the routine, as he received treats, caught the poodle's attention, and received lots of head pats from his mom.
