[bells tolling]

Oh, man. Late again.

[bell tolling,

and groaning]


Later. Oh! Gotta go!

Excuse me, ma'am.

Do you have

the time?.

No, I don't, I'm so sorry.


[man whistles]

Hey, there, Rainy.

Come here, boy. Good boy.

[groaning and panting]

Good boy. Have a good day.

Hey. Hi Rainy. Hey.

Hey, boy.

Come on, Rainy.

Good boy.


Hey, Rainy.

Come here.

Hey, boy. Good dog.

Hey, Rainy. Come to Mama.

Let me give you a big hug.


Hey, Rainy, have a treat.

Hey! Cool dog!


Good boy.

Good boy.


[music continues]


[rings bell]

Hey, there, Rainy.

Deliver this for me?.



Morning, folks.



[romantic music]


[twinkle sound]

Look at that!

[both chuckle]


[romantic music continues]



Hey, Rainy!

Hey, there.

[alarm clock]


[turns alarm off]

I'm tired.




No, Rainy.

No! Just one more minute.



Oh, man! I'm late.


Let me go brush my teeth.


What would I do

without you, boy?.

[whine and twinkle]

Good morning.

Jimmy, sit

down and eat some

breakfast, please.

But I'm

late, Laura.

Sit down,

young man.

All my friends

are waiting

for me. Dad?.

Son, you gotta

figure out a way

to get to bed earlier.

But it's a holiday.

Do you have

money for lunch?.

Yeah. Bye.

Come here, Rainy.


That's no breakfast

for a grown boy, Dean.

I know I 'm not his mother,

but you have to be firmer

with him sometimes.

He'll be fine, doll.

Have you told him yet?.


Honey, it's gonna

be difficult enough

knowing he has to move.

Even more difficult

because of Rainy.

You need to speak to him.

I know. It's just--

It's gonna break his heart.

[train horn and rap music]

Did you eat

your breakfast, boy?.


Okay then. I got your

favorite snack right here.

But remember,

Dad doesn't think

it's good for your teeth.

[rap music continues to play

on their earphones]


What's wrong boy?.

What's the matter?.



Help me, please!

I can't hold on!

Help me! Help me!


[suspense music]


We have to do something, boy.



Help me! Help me!


Hang on, I'll go get help.

Jimmy, help!


Help me!



That's it, Rainy!

Please, please help me.


Please Rainy,

help me.

Help me. Please.

Please, Rainy.

Grab Rainy's collar!



Reach, Sharon! Reach!





Pull her, Rainy!

Good boy. Good boy.


[triumphant music]


Sharon! Over here!

Daddy! Daddy!

Dad. Rainy saved me.


Good job, Rainy.


Sharon. Oh.

Sweetheart, are

you okay?.

What happened?.

I lost control

of my bicycle.

He saved me.

Well, he

sure did.

He's a heck

of a dog.

He's a hero.

I love you, Rainy.

Did you

hear that boy?.

You're a hero.

Now what

can we do

for Rainy?.

How about

a big juicy bone?.


You got it!

I love you, too.



That dog's a hero!


Hey, Rainy.

Look over there.


Did you see that?

Hey, can I have one?.


Jefferson High

marching band!


You're a hero.

[several animals howling]



[all, meowing]




Hey, sport.

How was your

day today, huh?.

It was so much fun.

Rainy is a star.

Hey, Rainy,

did you get your

errands all done?.




Come on, boy.

Let's go.


Would you like

to say grace this

evening, Jimmy?

Sure. Thank you

Lord for this food,

for rest and home

and all things good,

but most of all,

for those we love.

Specially, Rainy. Amen.

[Rainy groans]



Well, it sure

smells good, honey.

You know, Jimmy,

we have some exciting

news to tell you.

We're going on vacation?.

Not exactly. But we are

going somewhere this

coming weekend.


Well, your father

got a big promotion.

He's gonna be

the general manager

of a new insurance office

in New York City.

Isn't that great news?.

Does this mean

we have to move?.

Well, yes it does, sport.

You'll love it, Jimmy.

It's so much more

exciting than here.

None of this small town

thinking there.

But I like Eagle Rock.

And what about my friends?.

Well, you'll

make new friends.

Sport, we'll be able

to come back and visit

from time to time.

Well, you boys can.

Well, I suppose

that'll be okay.

Rainy and l

are pretty good

at making friends.


[melancholy music]

Jimmy, we can't take Rainy.

What do you mean?.


The apartment

the company's paying for

doesn't allow pets

But Rainy's part

of the family. Right Dad?.

Yes, he is.

Then we have to take him.

We can hide him,

and he'll be quiet

and nobody will know.

Jimmy, this is very

important to your father.

We've all made sacrifices

so he can get this promotion.

Now I don't think

we can be selfish

about it now, can we?

But it's Rainy.

We can't leave him alone.

Jimmy, we talked to Charlie.

He's a security guard

at the Fairgrounds

and he's agreed to look

after Rainy until we find

an apartment that allows pets.

You called him,

didn't you, honey?

Y es. And Charlie told me

he loves animals.

And he promised to take very

good care of Rainy until we
