(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. 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)
