A comedy about a dog and a cat. An extension is being added to the house and everybody has plans for the new space. The woman of the house, in particular, has decided it will be a studio for her herself where she will paint the animal portrait she has been talking about for years. There is even talk of an exhibition in the National Gallery. The dog and the cat are very interested in who might be selected as a subject for this portrait and they compete with each other for the affections of this great artist!
