Where did you find the dog?

The problem is they need to find the owner of the dog.
Have you tried calling the number on the collar?
The animal shelter.
Come on, Robbie.
Let's get her to the animal shelter.
so they can find her owners quickly.
The number is out of service.

they need to find the owner of the dog,
and the hour is very late.
But the animal shelter -- ruff ruff --
is open until 9:00.
The dog. The owner.
The problem. The animal.
The number. The hour.
Your hear "the" before a consonant sound,
the dog, the problem, the number.
Your hear "the" before a vowel sound,
the owner, the animal, the hour.
Wait ... H is not a vowel sound!
It's a consonant sound!
But it's not the first sound.
The H is silent. The hour.
But what about the dog?
Robbie has the idea to adopt Gemma
if the owners (the Levinsons) don't call the office.
You hear "the" before a consonant sound.
You hear "the" before a vowel sound.
The idea, the owner, the Levinsons.
I just love
the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
