    Titles read: "Canine Conundrums!"


    Soundtrack missing from 01:32:59 to 01:33:28.

    Various shots of a man with a white dog in a garden. The man seems to be asking the dog to bark. The dog walks to a box and takes out a little sign reading 'Bark'.

    When the soundtrack cuts back in we hear that the dog, called Sport, learnt his ABC before he was six. Sport takes out other signs reading 'Pose', 'Roll-over' and when his owner holds them out, he does so. His owner shuffles the signs in the box. Sport takes out 'Go Dead' and lies down.

    The owner says he is going out and asks Sport to keep an eye on the food and drink on a table. When the man has gone, Sport jumps on the table, eats some of the food and places a toy cat on the table. Sport barks to bring the man back, who picks up the cat and throws it on the ground.
