Wild Dogs in Saijo

Situation: A Japanese man and American woman are sitting in the man’s apartment, tired after hosting a party.

W: (gasps loudly) Oh my gosh! Kazu!

M: Huh?! What’s wrong, Claire?

W: I just got a text from Kotaro! He said he’s being chased by a wild dog!

M: Hey, didn’t he just leave? I haven’t seen any dogs around here except for my neighbor’s stupid little terrier.

W: He said it came out of a rice field!

M: Ha ha, only in a small town like Saijo!

W: Now it’s barking at him! What should we do?

M: “We”? Tell him to just get a giant stick to scare it off!

W: What if it bites him?

M: Don’t worry, Claire. I’m sure it’s just one of those scrawny farmer’s dogs that we sometimes see running around in the rice fields.

W: Oh no!

M: Now what?

W: He said he tried to run back here, since it’s closer than his place, but the dog just followed him! He’s really close to here!

M: (looks outside window) Oh, I see him! Hey, Kotaro! Ha ha. Made a new friend, I see!?

W: Oh my gosh, you’re useless! I’m going to help him!

M: Here, take this broom!
