FADE IN:

EXT. DOG PARK - DAY

On a beautiful spring day, a light brown SCHNAUZER manages to free itself from its owner and greets a GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

SCHNAUZER
I've never seen you here before? When do you come?

GOLDEN RETRIEVER
(gesturing to its owner)
When he's not hung over.

The schnauzer's owner catches up to her dog; grabs the leash.

WOMAN
(addresses the man)
She's got a mind of her own.

MAN
So does he.

WOMAN
I've never seen you here before. When do you come?

MAN
(laughs)
When I'm not hung over.

As they stroll, other dogs scamper, owners are mingling.

SCHNAUZER
What's your name?

GOLDEN RETRIEVER
Max.

WOMAN
What's your name?

MAN
Max.

GOLDEN RETRIEVER
What's yours?

SCHNAUZER
Daisy.

MAX
What's yours?

WOMAN
Daisy.

GOLDEN RETRIEVER
Do you hear an echo?

SCHNAUZER
Isn't it something? How they try to look like us!

GOLDEN RETRIEVER
And think like us too? We should throw them a bone for good behavior.

She nods wholeheartedly as they disappear into the crowd of dogs and their owners, or dogs with their dogs, or owners with their owners???

FADE TO BLACK

Wow, this one is tough, mostly because I need to identify with the type of dog before I can give it a voice. The shnauzer was difficult because I don't know anyone who has one, and the retriever, well let's just say that I am stuck with Don Ameche doing the voice of Shadow in the 1993 remake of Disney's Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey.

A good thing that you didn't write in a westie. I would've jumped at the part! :lol:

The way we elevate our pets in today's society-I'd say the dogs are right!! This one was really fun.

Your knowledge of actors is quite broad - many would not know these greats. I was sailing along on the quiz answering a lot and getting stars still got an F. How can that happen ?/HAHA just love doing these..sandy

ha ha Petra. Okay, just a question though:
"She nods wholeheartedly as they disappear"

Who's the she?

God Save The Queen

(1)

God save our gracious Queen,

Long live our noble Queen,

God save the Queen!

Send her victorious,

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us.

God save the Queen!
(2)

O Lord our God arise,

Scatter her enemies,

And make them fall.

Confound their politics,

Frustrate their knavish tricks, ,

On thee our hopes we fix.

God save the Queen!

(3)

Thy choicest gifts in store,

On her be pleased to pour,

Long may she reign.

May she defend our laws,

And ever give us cause,

To sing with heart and voice.

God save the Queen!
