Does he have a name yet?

Yes, he does. Temporary guest!

You'll have to keep him.

Don't the house

Ask your mother.



Could you come here, please?

Look, he even likes your music.

Really? I can't believe it,

I absolutely have to keep this.

No more dog.

Don't encourage him.

I won't!

You're so mean.

Dad, he's gonna jump out

of it, here.

Oh yeah, that's better.

You know what, bud?

Well, that's good.

I like it, great!

So, you saw Michael last night?

Yeah, we drove over to the look-out.

Looks common but it's beautiful.

Very romantic.

It was.

Are you the...

Can I help you, pop?

Yeah... yeah, I just found this little

tyke at the station last night.

Can you board him till

we find his owner?

Board him?

We can't board him.

This isn't a boarding service,

Look, I just found him,

what am I going to do with him?


He's cute. That'll help with

the adoption but...

We give them two weeks.

Two weeks?

We're packed!

Excuse me.

I'll call you next week then,

alright... bye-bye.

- How are you doing, Parker?

I'm doing great. I was wondering

if I could ask you for a favor?

Sure... anything.

Oh... look at this!

Hey little one. Hello... hello.

Oh... oh, he's gorgeous.

Where did you comes from?

Well, he was wandering

around the station last night.

Really? He is adorable!

I just want to put that up.

- Okay, fine... fine!

- Window? - Yep, and over there.

And anyone of those.

Parker, this dog is just fabulous!

You wouldn't be interested, would you?
