Puppy pals Victor and Butch return in Ahoyty-Toyty by Helen Stephens, a companion to Poochie-Poo. When their owners, Miss Loopy and Miss Froopy-Frou-Frou take a cruise, the pups ""couldn't wait to explore."" When they meet the ship captain's dog, the snooty Lord Laa-Di-Dah, Butch impresses him, while Victor flubs and fumbles in front of him. Will this new dog drive a wedge between the friends?
