||Champion in Dangerous Waters
||Champion and Rebel dog are in the high country, watching over the herd. A mare and her colt stray, and Champ rescues them from a cougar. The colt stumbles into an arroyo, trapped. Coudburst, downpour. Champ leads the colt out of the arroyo. As a flash flood rushes forth, Champ descends again into the arroyo, grabs a fawn by the nape, and leaps to safety. Rancher Tex: his jeep has stalled in floodwater. He rides Champ back to save the ranch from the storm and dam-burst. Rebel herds and pulls the swine from the barn to the wagon. A thunderbolt smashes the barn roof, and Tex is knocked unconscious. Champ and Rebel pull him onto the wagon. Rebel leads the team and wagon to safety. Champ smashes the corral, freeing the horses to escape the coming flood. Back at the hilltop, the rancher tells Champ that the cattle are still trapped. Champ and Rebel return to the ranch, Rebel opens the gate, and the cattle are on their way to safety. Champ turns back, heads for the barn, and rescues a box of mewling kittens floating in the flood waters, by transferring them to a feed bag, in which the mamma cat also crawls.
