The trouble-mongering terrier has to find his way home when he chases a rabbit a little too far! The white terrier who found a home with Fred and Lucy in "McDuff Moves In" gets lost again when he sees a rabbit in the neighbour's yard and chases him "over hills and streets and flower beds" and into Mrs Higgins' garden. The matronly Mrs. Higgins puts him in the sidecar of her red motorcycle and is driving him into town, when McDuff recognises the smells, the sounds, and the sight of home.
