An excerpt …

(women enter with their dogs)

MRS. FLEASLEY: Is this the DoggieObedienceSchool?

MRS. TICKER: Better be. I hope I didn’t drag this hound dog up three flights of steps for nothin’.

MRS. FLEASLEY: Hound dog? Oh, Chi Chi, don’t look at him. He’s a common hound dog!

MRS. TICKER: You got that right. What’s the name of your rat?

MRS. FLEASLEY: Chi Chi is a full-blooded Pomeranian!

MRS. TICKER: I’ll be switched. Think she’ll ever grow?

(the dogs chat with each other)

CHI CHI: It’s all acting, silly. Dogs are actors.

RALPH: They are?

CHI CHI: Do you really want to catch that car when you chase it?

RALPH: Heck no. What’d I do with it?

CHI CHI: Exactly. You’re acting, Ralph. You’re just acting. You expect the moon to talk back when you howl at it?

RALPH: I’d hope not. I’d be plumb scared.

CHI CHI: Of course not, it’s all an act.  Go ahead.

RALPH: Well, I guess I could try.

CHI CHI: Whimper.

RALPH: Do what?

CHI CHI: Whimper. Whimper.

(the dogs have a plan)

MRS. FLEASLEY: (stopping suddenly and turning to an unseen nurse) What? Oh, we were just ... uh ... discussing our dogs. The doctor’s ready for us? It’s about time! Who’s first? I am, of course! My Chi Chi couldn’t possibly be in line behind this … this …

RALPH: Hound. I’m a hound, lady.

MRS. FLEASLEY: This hound! Come, Chi Chi! (grabs her dog and starts toward the doctor’s door) I hope you never see that dog again!

RALPH: Bet you do.

CHI CHI: CityPark? Just after the moon comes up.

RALPH: You’ll hear me howlin’.

CHI CHI: You dog, you.

RALPH: Chow!

CHI CHI: Chow!
