An excerpt …

(they have a book on dog training)

DEVIN: Yeah. Just started. How cool … we’re training our dogs together. Let’s see what’s next. (both Micah and Devin begin to read)

HARLEY DOG: (after a pause … only Harley and Scout can hear each other) Can you believe this?

SCOUT DOG: No. I’ve been trying not to laugh.

HARLEY DOG: What do they think we are?

SCOUT DOG: (a pause, then) Dogs. (both dogs look at each other a moment then laugh) Sorry. Couldn’t help that.

HARLEY DOG: How long you been training him?

SCOUT DOG: Started last week. He picked me up at the pound. You learn a lot in a dog pound.

HARLEY DOG: I’ve heard stories … never actually seen one.

(the first trick)

DEVIN: (reading) “Begin with simple tasks such as fetching a stick.” Okay, Harley. Here’s your first test. (standing and picking up a stick) See the stick?

SCOUT DOG: Does he think you’re blind?

DEVIN: Okay. Fetch! (Devin tosses the imaginary stick) Come on, boy! Fetch! Fetch!

HARLEY DOG: : Should I?

SCOUT DOG: Humor him.

HARLEY DOG: Very well. (Harley suddenly goes into a spasm of happy-puppy frenzy, energetically dashes after the stick, picking it up in his mouth and returning it to Devin)

SCOUT DOG: That was a work of art.

HARLEY DOG: Thanks

(the dog has a plan)

SCOUT DOG: Cool!

HARLEY DOG: You gotta milk it for all it’s worth.

DEVIN: Now just a little more … come on, boy, just a little more … (Harley growls, gets a biscuit, growls a little more, gets another, eventually building to all-out barking and biscuit tossing)

SCOUT DOG: What a trick!

HARLEY DOG: You ever see such a well-trained human in your life? With a little patience you can teach ‘em anything!
