Entertaining Our Gang short has the kids in the streets trying to teach their dogs tricks with the owner bragging about whose dog is the best. Soon Mickey's dog rescues a rich girl (Mary Kornman) after her horse runs away with her in the cart. The kids are invited to her party when trouble follows. Apparently DOG DAYS is one of the handful of shorts that were at one time lost only to be rediscovered years later. From what I've read this one here is still missing quite a bit of footage as it barely runs 12-minutes, which is a lot shorter than most films in the series. Either way, this was a pleasant entry and certainly one of the best I've seen up to this point in the series. I think what makes it work so well are the animals and the various tricks we get to see. The majority of them are quite nice to watch and this includes the big scene where the dog manages to catch up with the horse and jump on the back of the cart to save the day. Also funny were several moments where Mickey tells the gang to follow Mary's lead when it comes time to eat and poor Joe gets put through the pains of not being able to eat the ice cream.
