Setting the stage:
midnight...Maudie asleep in the laundry area oblivious to the closing of the gate. The characters will speak in human voices so you can actually understand them.
2am all is quiet but the watchers are watching.
Suddenly an intruder is detected at the gate to the sleeping areas of the priviledged. Sir Cuddles springs into action, leaping from the bed and sounding the alarm. General Albert Spice joins him and together they hold off the intruder.
"GET BACK YOU BEAST" shouts Sir Cuddles to the frantic and gate climbing husky.
"The Gate is closed, go away" orders the general in a tone that brooks no argument.
"please, please...." begs Maudie, "please let me in, I need to be in there, please open the gate!"
"NO!" they both scream "THE GATE IS CLOSED! YOU CANNOT COME IN!"
Maudie loses her mind, and despite the two mean and unfeeling poodles, she starts to climb the gate.
" Send reinforcements! the bitch is scaling the gate!!!"
Suddenly out of the darkness appears Squirt (who apparently is sometimes brave) and he joins the other two in holding off the intruder.
The battle is fierce, the little trio stand their ground, refusing to give an inch.
Finally Maude sinks to the ground in defeat, still on the wrong side of the gate.
She begins to sob, "oh...will no one help me, will no one let me in???"
And in the darkness, a figure appears in a very ugly bathrobe. The tiny army respectfully gives way, the gate swings open and Maude dashes past to her bed, finally safe at last.
As the silence once again falls and peace reigns again the poodles grumble to themselves..."she woke HER up again, that's why we lost"..."yes, but did you see how brave was the little Squirt?"
