Eli is doing Pomeranian curls in front of the TV.
Pookie goes through the ability course and tricks level with perfect ease it all comes down to the last trial – run and sit.
Announcer: it all comes down to this last stage for Pookie to win it all!
Pookie starts running and then slows down and seems to get confused

He is depressed
A buff black man walks into the store and towards Eli. He’s an old friend a legend named Callister Thunderblood
Eli looks up
Thunder: How ya doin brotha?”
Eli: ” I’m good, dog”
He tears up a little at the words good dog
Thunder: listen brotha there’s a position open at the Buffpup its yours if you want it.
Eli in contemplative
” I dont know Thunder I just dont got it anymore”
” it’ll be good for you brotha come by and take a look… For old time sake”
Eli finally agrees
Next scene: open to a large gym with burly bodybuilders and their dogs.
A man is doing a 3 point lift of a husky
Another guy is pulling cables that lift up spaniels in harnesses
Another guy is dual curling Pomeranians
Thunder and Eli are walking and staying center frame as they walk past everything.
Thunder stops and motions toward some fur ” sweep up that fur brotha, camera pivots toward the broom behind a feral looking dog.
Eli steps toward the black dog and he growls.
Thunder says stoically: That’s blackie, he’s a stray dog not even our best guys can train him”
Eli takes this as a challenge and picks up a leash sitting on a weight bench.
Blackie and Eli stare each other down. Blackie growls.
All the burly men look
Eli lunges in slow motion just like old times and he leashes Blackie successfully. The guys cheer. – Eli smiles at Thunder and a montage follows of Eli Training Blackie
