    Germany. "Meet sixteen hundred four-legged friends of Berlin - on the spree." Low angle shot of large number of Germans walking down stone steps with large dogs on leads. Full tile reads: "Dalmatians, St. Bernard's, "Pekes", plain dogs and fluffy ones - they're all here, looking for a prize." High angle shot of a dog show. Dogs whine and bark. Judges stand behind podiums and look at the dogs. Low angle shot of dogs being paraded past the camera. C/U of a pug. It looks around and puts its head from side to side. Larger dogs are paraded in front of the camera (Great Danes?) C/U of a Scottie dog (Highland Terrier?) yawning. A boxer dog is presented to the camera. Very small dogs are seen on leads - not sure of the breed. Two St Bernard's make friends. Group of five or six white dogs are held on leads by one man. Camera pans across three dogs (Airdale Terriers?) and their owner. C/U of a dog with long fur and big ears - breed not recognised. C/U of a Pekinese / Pekingese. M/S of funny round nosed dogs.
