Walter, the family dog with a nose for trouble, creates problems for his young mistress because he keeps sniffing out and unwrapping the Christmas presents.
Industrious Louise makes Christmas gifts for the members of her household, then shops for a dog biscuit for her dog, Walter. Overnight he ruins all the packages looking for his gift. Louise's ire lasts until the middle of the second story, when she gets lost while the family looks for a Christmas tree in the woods, and Walter finds her. In the third story, Walter witnesses Santa's visit and gets an extra bone. Although the illustrations brim with cheer, the book's content will satisfy only the youngest, most unquestioning readers; the characters lack personality, and the first and funniest incident can't support the other, flatter episodes.
