WOOF – Who’s going to save the world?
Magical buffoonery about sharing and the human gift of empathy for others

Two tramps sit on a bench, just enjoying life. The sun is shining; they have salami in their pockets to eat. Suddenly, there is a small dog at their feet, and he stays right there with them. It’s good to have a dog, they think. He’ll keep you company, wag his tail when he sees you, and bark when a stranger comes too close to your bench. The dog is hungry, but they barely have enough salami for themselves. Perhaps the dog should look for a different home? They can think of a hundred reasons why the dog can’t stay with them. Let’s send him away… But what if he gets run over by a car, or can’t find anything to eat, or freezes to death, or is trapped by a dog-catcher? Oh, it will be OK, nothing will happen to him. But what if it does? Then suddenly there‘s not just one dog with them, but a whole bunch of them! You can look after one dog, but a whole pack of them?!
