Dobbie was the name of a carriage horse owned by Nik Kinn. When Nik found the flowered hat of perfume bootlegger Posie Ermine, he placed the hat on Dobbie’s head, not knowing the hat held plans for an upcoming heist. Posie and his daughter Mindy attempted to steal the hat back by grabbing it while driving by in a convertible. This spooked Dobbie and the horse ran wild, crashing into a lake which destroyed the carriage. Dobbie swam out and was eventually recovered by Nik who also found the hidden plans and turned them over to police.
