(two dogs play in the park with a ball)
Dog 1: Did you hear that?
Dog 2: Mmm… no, I don’t think so.
(they keep playing with the ball)
Dog 1: What’s that noise?
Dog 2: What noise?
Dog 1: Come on! Don’t tell me that you didn’t hear it.
Dog 2: Oh well, Yes, I did! It’s my stomach! I’m hungry.,.. and don’t say anything more!
(they keep playing with the ball when suddenlty the ball falls into the lake)
Dog 1: Look what you did!
Dog 2: Let me get it.
(Dog 2 gets near the water and sees a bone in the bottom of the lake)
Dog 2: Look… it’s a bone!
Dog 1: Yeah, sure… the ball changed into a bone as soon as it touched the water!
Dog 2: I’m telling you the truth… it’s a bone!
Dog 1: Let me see… you’re right… it’s a bone!
Dog 2: Let’s get it…it’s just what I need.
Dog 1: How are we going to get it out?
Dog 2: Let me think… I know… we’ll drink all the water, and then the bone will be mine.
Dog 1: You mean ours.
Dog 2: That’s what I said.
(both dogs drink all the water in the lake. They are now full and fat)
Dog 1: I can’t drink anymore water.
Dog 2: Keep drinking.
Dog 1: How much?
Dog 2: Just keep drinking.
(both dogs fall to the ground)
Dog 1: I don’t think it was a good idea.
Dog 2: Sorry… I thought it was going to be fast and easy, but it wasn’t safe.
(both dogs close their eyes)
