The Daltons escape. They are followed by Rintincan. After refusing to take charge of them again, Lucky Luke is forced to do so after they steal horses and a cow from a friend's house. Aided by Rintincan, he manages to catch up with them. In an unfortunate combination of circumstances and because of Rintincan, Luke is taken prisoner by the Daltons, who use it as a bargaining chip against the release of Joe Dalton, who had previously been arrested at Rightful Bend. Averell Dalton, who is fond of the dog, goes looking for it, which will be the cause of his capture as well as those of his brothers.
