Dolly claims she wrote Dylan's poems to impress Hansel. Things get out of hand and she winds up in a poetry slam. Will she keep up the lie - or own up?
Dylan is cloud gazing in the park, coming up with a poem about them on the spot. Meanwhile, Dolly is watching her crush, Hansel the Husky, across the park. Dylan suggests she go introduce herself, but as she tries to come up with what she'll say to him, Dylan is still barking his poem out loud, getting it stuck in Dolly’s head. She asks Dylan to recite the poem to the other puppies, and suggests Diesel, who has recently had stitches done and claims his cone is now picking up random voices, such as Pearl the Police Horse taking an apple "into custody".
Dolly soon approaches Hansel and tries to introduce herself, but gets tongue-tied. Hansel, thinking she was reciting poetry to him, asks for more, with Dolly reciting Dylan’s poem, which impresses Hansel and has him invite her to meet at the cemetery at dusk.
At home, Dolly tries to come up with a poem, but then ends up doing some free-styling hip-hop, which the other pups like. Dylan then comes in, complimenting Dolly, and Dolly admits she used his poem to impress Hansel. Dylan is happy that someone liked his poem, as he has anxiety about reciting in front of a crowd. He agrees to help Dolly with Hansel, but Dizzy worries about Dolly taking credit for them. There is also no time to write and teach Dolly a new poem, but Diesel walks by, mimicking Clarissa the Corgi as his cone picks her up, giving Dolly & Dylan an idea.
The two get Dolly to wear the cone and Da Vinci to paint it in a style that matches Dolly, while Dylan hides close by and feeds the poem to Dolly. Diesel has to come too, since he will not stop chewing his stitches. The plan works, despite some small issues caused by Diesel (with Dolly briefly doing her free-style to cover), and Hansel invites Dolly to recite the cloud poem at a poetry slam in the park later.
Dolly is beginning to feel guilty about taking credit, but tries to put on a confident look as she heads to the park. The other Dalmatians ask to come along, and Dylan agrees, as long as they are inconspicuous (though the pups appear to have trouble trying to pronounce it).
At the park, a lot of animals are gathered, and it is Dolly’s turn to recite. Dolly then notices Dylan in the audience, and admits that Dylan is the real poet, inviting him out to recite. Dylan is anxious to do so, with so many animals watching, but Dolly gets the puppies to fetch him up and she helps Dylan with his performance anxiety, allowing Dylan to recite the poem to much applause. Hansel stares in awe at Dylan.
Dylan then suggests Dolly do her free-styling, which also receives a big round of applause. Hansel admits to Dylan thar while Dolly’s hip-hop is okay, it’s too mainstream for him, so he invites Dylan to walk with him as the two discuss Dylan’s poem together.
