An indescript brown dog sniffs through garbage.  An African-American
youth spots the dog while walking down the street.  He approaches the
dog in a friendly, non-threatening manner.

			BOY
		Hi, doggie!  Nice doggie!  Here boy, come on...

The boy gets down on one knee.

		Hi fella!

Suddenly, the dog's expression changes from passive apathy to that of 
unbridled aggression.

			DOG
		Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

The boy jumps back.

			BOY
		Hey!

Suddenly, a random man with protective arm padding shouts advice to the boy.

			RANDOM MAN
		Don't run!

			BOY
		Mutt!

			MUTT
		Walk away slowly!

			BOY
		He tried to bite me!

			MUTT			
		Never try to pet an animal you don't know!  He may be lost, 
		sick, or scared!

			BOY
		You mean he might be dangerous!

			MUTT (comforting the boy)
		That's right!  If we don't know, we leave him alone!

			BOY
		And we don't get bit.  Now I know!

			MUTT
		And knowing is half the battle!

Another G.I. Joe Public Service Announcement.
