Mickey and Donald see a poster advertising a pet show being put up and figure that Pluto could easily win it, but first they have to give Pluto a bath. Pluto doesn't want to take a bath, so Mickey and Donald, eventually joined by their girlfriends and Goofy, chase Pluto all over town. Then, when they finally catch him, they have lots of trouble trying to give him a bath, to the point that he briefly runs about and jumps in Mickey's car. They also have trouble putting a bow around his neck after that. When they finally do bring Pluto to the pet show, they see the whole poster that it's actually a pet cat show.
