[ open on exterior, La Cusina Canina ] [ dissolve to interior, elegant restaurant decorated with the canine taste in mind; the patrons and staff are dressed as dogs ]

Maitre’D: Good evening. Welcome to La Cusina Canina, New York’s premier doggie restaurant. Do you have a reservation?

Skippy: Uh, yes.. Daisy & Skippy, for eight o’clock.

Maitre’D: Ah, yes! I’m afraid that your table will not be ready for a few minutes. Would you care to sit at the bar?

Daisy: Hmm.. alright, I guess we’re a little early!

Maitre’D: Fluffy! A complimentary water!

Bartender: Right away, Monsieur Butch!

Daisy: [ spins three times before taking her seat at the bar ] This is a nice place!

Skippy: Yeah!

Bartender: [ places glass on the bar ] There you are. One ice-cold toilet bowl water.

[ the three of them begin to lap up the toilet bowl water from the glass ] [ cut to table at the other end of the restaurant ]

Waiter: Good evening. I’m your waiter – Tippy. Are you ready to order?

King: I am. But the bitches don’t know what they want.

King’s Date: Well, it’s just that everything looks so good! You go ahead and order first, King!

King: Alright. How is this appetizer? This, uh.. this Lawn Grass with Deer Pellets?

Maitre’D: Oh! I recomend it! The pellets are fresh and chewy! And Chef Otis personally urinates on all of the grass he serves!

King: Okay, that’s great. Okay, I’m gonna start with that, and then I’m gonna have the Tire-Stripped Possum with Blowflies.

Waiter: Excellent choice. And, Madam?

King’s Date: Yeah, gee.. uh.. uh.. I’m trying to lose some weight.. so, I-I’ll just have two cups of Science Diet..

King: Oh, come on, honey! It’s the best restaurant in the city. You oughtta try something.

King’s Date: Honey, I’m saving room for the coffee grinds with shrimp and eggshells for dessert.

Waiter: And, Miss Yorkie?

Yorkie: What’s in the Cat Vomit?

Waiter: Ohh.. it’s a partially-digested vole with dustmite-laden hairball – it’s very popular.

Maitre’D: And a Fancy Feast Tuna-Base, in its own aspic glaze.

Yorkie: Mmmm..! I’ll have that!

Maitre’D: And what can I get for you, Monsieur Buddy?

Buddy: Yes, uh.. how’s the Rotting Fish?

Waiter: Hmm.. here – smell. [ extends his arms ] I rolled in it this morning.

[ everyone at the table sniffs the Waiter ferociously ]

Buddy: [ excited ] Yes, yes! That’s the real thing, all right! Bring me of two of those!

Waiter: Very good. [ retreats from table ] [ at the front of the restaurant, the popular Big Dog enters ]

Maitre’D: Ah. Bonsoir, Big Dog! Always a pleasure to see you! Your regular table is waiting!

Big Dog: Goooooood! Good! [ sits at his table ]

Maitre’D: And what will be your pleasure tonight?

Big Dog: Buuuuuutch! I think I’ll start off with an aperitif!

Maitre’D: Pepe! Big Dog will have his usual!

Big Dog: Any specials you want to tell me about?

Maitre’D: Oh! Yes. We have a sumptious Melon-Rind Compost.. with Cockworm-Flaked Bacon Grease.. served on an Old Sneaker and a half-side of Tennis Ball. I had it myself, I’m sure you will enjoy it.

Big Dog: Okay, Butch! On your advise!

Maitre’D: And to start! A basket.. of.. waterlogged sticks from a creek upstate!

Big Dog: [ sniffing his plate ] Thank you!

[ a male-female dog couple enters, and Big Dog is attracted to the scent of the bitch ]

Big Dog: Ahhhh.. [ raises his leg and begins to hump the bitch’s backside ]

Male Dog: Excuse me! But the lady came with me!

[ the two dogs began to growl and bark at one another, starting an upset throughout the restaurant as the dogs join the chorus; Big Dog quickly retreats back to his table, and the barking ceases ]

Bartender: And your Bitch’s Piss Martini.

Big Dog: Thank you. May I have an olive with that?

[ Bartender tosses the olvie directly into Big Dog’s mouth ]

Maitre’D: En-joyyyy. [ as the other patrons’ bowls of food are distributed ] Bon appetit, everyone!

[ to pass the time while still waiting for their table, Skippy and Daisy proceed to chase each other in a circle, sniffing at each other’s butt ]

Maitre’D: I’m sorry! Excuse me, please! But because of the new butt-sniffing ban, I’ll have to ask you to do that outside!

Skippy: You can’t sniff a butt in a bar any more?! God, this is absurd!

Daisy: Ridiciulous!

[ they exit outside, as the scene closes ]
