Part 1

Martha has to take her daily bath. After Helen leaves to take out the trash she leaves Martha's collar on the window. Martha accidentally makes it fall in the trash, Martha (still covered in soap) chases after the garbage truck. The truck driver sees the soap on Martha and thinks she's a rabid dog. He also thinks he is being attacked. He calls the pound and Martha is soon abducted. Martha later meets other dogs who were abandoned in the pound.
