  7. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): We're going out soon. So early in the day?


  9. As Kaji enters, two STRANGERS approach her aggressively.

  10. KAJI (V.O.): I've my routine to do. Don't bother me!

  15. Sitting on the lap of the Pack Leader, Kaji sniffs the air outside the moving car.

  16. KAJI (V.O.): We've been here before.

  17. Recalling.

  18. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): There're restaurants by the sea.

  19. We hear Peter asking the Pack Leader: Which way?

  20. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Oh, it seems that we're going to a new place.

  21. We see their car going down a narrow road.

  22. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): That's exciting.

  23. PACK LEADER: The barbecue restaurant is on the right.

  24. We see Peter nodding and Kaji sniffing.

  25. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It seems that delicious food is all around.

  28. KAJI (V.O.): Everywhere is sand.

  29. Recalling.

  30. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): In the pet garden, there's just a small sand spot to pee.

  31. Kaji begins to walk on the sand.

  32. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Oh, it's quite hot. Would it hurt my paw pads?

  33. Walking.

  34. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'd better keep on walking to see if there's cool sand.

  35. PACK LEADER: She's not afraid of the sand anymore!

  36. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): The Pack Leader doesn't know my pads aren't protected.

  37. Peter leads Kaji to walk close to the sea front.

  38. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): The sand here isn't that hot.

  39. PETER: She's a good girl!

  40. We see sea water coming in on the beach, gradually reaching Kaji's front legs.

  41. KAJI (V.O.): That's cool.

  42. PACK LEADER: Oh, she's not afraid of the seawater too!

  43. Soon, Kaji turns around to step back.

  44. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'm worried that the seawater may suck me out to the sea.

  45. Pausing.

  46. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I've swum in a pool before. It was torture.

  47. Kaji then lies down on the cool sand.

  48. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): The greatest help after all is self-help.
