Welcome to San Francisco,|the city by the bay.

Home to 30,000 fre hydrants, 4 million tennis|balls and very liberal pooper-scooper laws.

My name is Lucky. I'm a dog, in case you|hadn't guessed, and I belong to this man.

You remember Dr Dolittle, right?|The guy who can talk to animals?

If you don't, let me jog your memory.|He's a doctor and he talks to animals.

Anyways, he's busier than ever.

Doctor, you've got Mr Carson at ten for|a full workup. Mr Wennington's EKG's at 12.

- Mrs Bloom's got a bad rash. I told her 11.15.|- Got you.

Buster's deworming is at 12.30. Misty's cough|is back. I put her in at one. Then neuters.

- Rotary Club dinner tonight.|- Kennel Club tomorrow.

OK, push Mr Carson to 11. I'll deworm Buster|at 12, do the EKG at 12.30. Move Misty to 1.15.

And, Lucky, stop mixing up my charts.|Last week I almost neutered Mr Panitch.

From what I hear,|you'd be doing Mrs Panitch a favour.

Any time, ladies. Thank you.

No matter how busy he got,|Doc always found time to help animals.

- Hi. My name is Bandit.|- How you doin', Bandit?

- And I'm a stray.|- That's OK. We're all strays.

I know how hard it is the first time.|Take your time.

- One paw at a time, Bandit.|- That's true.

That's right. Never give up hope, Bandit.|And notjust Bandit. All you dogs, listen.

Every dog in here can find a family|and be somebody's best friend.

Let me hear you say that.|Say: I am somebody's best friend.

- I am somebody's best friend.|- One more time:

I am somebody's best friend!

- I am somebody's best friend.|- That's right. That's right.

Also, there's a family in North Beach|trying to find a good watchdog.

Somebody house-broken and great with kids.|Anyone got a background in security?

That'd be Rusty. Rusty's a watchdog.

- Who's Rusty?|- Rusty... Oh, no. Rusty!

- This better be important.|- No, uh, never mind, Rusty.

It says "Must not lick...

...all the time. "

Every zoo in the country had a job for him. He|was especially good at matters of the heart.

How long's it been|since you made baby turtles?

Not that long, maybe 20 years.

It'll be 48 years next Monday.

OK, I see the problem.|Listen, I'm gonna give you these pills.

- Crush 'em up and put 'em in your food.|- What do they do?


Oh-oh, yeah, you're lookin' fine.

Ho-ho, comin' atcha, baby!

In fact, he became an international celebrity,|travelling from Alaska to Australia.

I'm here with the world-famous Dr Dolittle,|who actually speaks with animals.

Now, what we're gonna do is sneak up on|and rescue this unsuspecting alligator.

We're quiet so he doesn't know we're here.

The trick with catching this alligator|is to be wary of those teeth...

Hey, Dolittle, see what I'm doing is allowing|Steve to think I don't know he's back there...

...wait until he tries to grab me, turn on him|and, Bob's your uncle, bite his arm off!

I'm gonna have to get|my arm round his neck...

- Hey, Steve, he knows we're here.|- Sh, don't blow the element of surprise.



Crikey, me arm!

It seemed everybody wanted a piece of|the good doctor, and his family understood.

- Thank you.|- Well, most of them did.

But we'll get to that part in a minute.|Right now I gotta answer the door.

- Yeah, who's there?|- Hey, it's me. I forgot my key. Open up.

Well, then I guess you'll have to beg, huh?|Come on, boy, beg.

Come on. Get it? Role reversal.

Cos usually it's the human...

...that says to the dog...|- I know you better open up the door 'fore I...

Just open the door, Lucky.

- Seeing as you feed me, I'll let you in.|- OK. Thank you. Thank you.

- Guess who's back from France.|- John?
