The voice of each Dog talking.


Buck talks about how each Bundy would come to his rescue,but then discard the possibility. Buck about Kelly:"the an idiot.If she did'nt undress in front of me,I would have no use for her". Buck about Bud:"Bud,well he could'nt find a two-legged Dog,what make me think he could find a four legged one"? Buck about Peggy:"the redhead...she would'nt know I was gone unless my face was on the side of a Bonbon Box". Buck about Al:"that just leaves the big dumb guy with the stinky feet.My pal Al,he would'nt let me down.Besides,what else does he have going on in his life"?
