They drive in her pink convertible to the Mutt Ball, whose theme is: “making fetch happen.” She walks with her during the presentation. The owners pose with their dogs on a platform, a green curtain behind them. The judge rate her competitors with average scores.

A dog rides a skateboard on his hind legs. The judges clap as she walks with Nugget. They award with perfect 10s. She blows a kiss the audience and accepts her first place trophy. A young man walks in with his dog and nods to her. She breaks the trophy. They meet in the center of the aisle and he kisses her hand. They leave the competition together.

While she and the young man eat at the cafe, Nugget stares at the ground. They share an ice cream and ride their bicycles in her neighborhood.

The young man carries a box as he moves into the box. His dog offers Nugget his bone. Pink hearts fly as Nugget bops the young man’s nose. The young man and Perry sit on the couch, their dogs beside them. His dog eats out of the popcorn bowl. She takes a handful of popcorn as the credits start for The Barky Bunch.
