Marmaduke is seated in a wagon, imitating a lighthouse with light spilling from his head in all directions. The Winslow's fat and elderly neighbors come upon the dog, and for no logical reason, the female with the face of a sow believes that Marmaduke wishes to go for a ride.
Continuing with his lighthouse imitation, Marmaduke reacts with fear when the sow-woman suggests to her morbidly obese husband that they give him a push. The dog's fear is probably caused by the fact that he is precariously balanced in the wagon, with his large Great Dane ass hanging out the back. Marmaduke is put as ease however, by the obese male steadying him as his wife begins to pull the wagon.
Summoning all of her strength, the woman pulls the wagon like a Clydesdale on speed. His lighthouse beacon now extinguished, Marmaduke nonetheless is experiencing great pleasure as the obese man massages his ass during the journey. With an inexplicable "zoom" sound, the trio passes six begging dogs on the side of the road.
In the final panel, the man and woman are seated in chairs looking at the group of dogs who have now gathered around Marmaduke in his wagon. Although not a single dog is in the wagon except for Marmaduke, the obese man seems to think that they all want a ride. The woman comments on the cuteness of it all.
And despite the total lack of humor, they all lived happily ever after.
