Gyp, a sheepdog, loves romping with his brother Sweep. Their owner, Mr. Wilkin, trains the brothers and eventually sells Sweep. Gyp proves to be a loyal, sweet companion but is not the skilled sheep dog his brother Sweep is. A peculiar trait about him is he never barks.
The following summer Mr. Herriot attends a sheepdog trial where he sees both Gyp and Sweep (with their separate owners). Sweep is competing in the trial and proves very competent. Will the two brothers recognize each other?
