THE LITTLE DOG

So soon!

TOBY-DOG

We’ve already wasted a great deal of time.

THE LITTLE DOG

But ... we’ve been chatting.  I’ve enjoyed it very much ... and I fail to understand why the society of young dogs like you, is forbidden me ...

TOBY-DOG

Allow me to make love to you.

THE LITTLE DOG

What’s that?

TOBY-DOG

I’ll show you.  First I hold myself very erect, stiffen my legs, walk ’round you, barking low and melodiously.  My tail wriggles, my ears ...

THE LITTLE DOG

Don’t come near me.  I feel quite upset. (Escaping.) Aie!  You unmannerly fellow!

KIKI-THE-DEMURE, (standing up)

These preludes are indeed a sad parody on our wild love-making ... (aloud, very angry) I should think—­

THE LITTLE DOG looks to see where the dreadful voice is coming from, and espies a strange striped monster with eyes afire, and eyebrows and whiskers bristling ferociously.  She dashes towards the door crying,

Help, help!  There’s a tiger on the piano!...

And falls into the arms of her mistress, who has come upon the scene and proceeds to console her with great volubility; Fifi! my Zezette!  My darling! there, there, goo, goo, goo, goo, you poor helpless little doggie!  What did they do to her?  Ooooo!—­Ooo!  Was it the naughty bow-bow? etc., etc., etc.
