Critic Reviews for Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
Audience reviews for homeward bound: the incredible journey.
Sweet and likable for all the family. Years after, The Incredible Journey still a delight remarkable odyssey and a Disney classic.
My animal-movie loving mania continues. I seem to remember a black and white version of this movie, but maybe I'm hallucinating nostalgia. I definitely read the book. It's a great story--what animal lover doesn't fear being separated from a beloved pet and then doesn't fantasy about that pet finding their way back to you? It bordered on sentimentality (it is Disney after all) but I cried at the end so there you have it.
Homeward Bound-The Incredible Journey is the perfect family film. The film may not be flawless, but for what it is, it's a fun, charming film that kids and adults can enjoy. The film is good fun. The voice talents are good in their parts, and you see that they have fun with the material. Homeward Bound is a fun family film for anyone looking for good entertainment. The film has a good story, a good cast and good adventure. Homeward Bound is a good film that the entire family can enjoy. With a good cast, this film is worth watching, and this is simply an amusing film. The film may not be perfect, but it's entertaining enough to appeal to the family, and it's simply a good adventure film. The film is charming and the cast do a good job with their parts. The script is well written, and the film succeeds at being a piece of nostalgia from your childhood, that is if you've seen it when you were younger. The voice over of the animals is a clever touch, and considering that this film came out around the same time as Beethoven, this is a far better family film with a better story, better acting, and above all, much more original concept. This the better film to watch and unlike Beethoven, which is tiring, stupid, and poorly constructed, Homeward Bound is still a good film after all these years. The film is very enjoyable whether you're a child or not, and it's an adventurous story that will appeal to the child in all of us.
It's the rare remake that works and improves upon its inspiration. I grew up with this film and I still cry every time I watch it. So much care was put into making this film, and it sucessfully respects the original and doesn't try to be hip for the new generation audience but rather goes in the better direction of good storytelling. The voice acting is also well done so there isn't really anything to dislike about Homeward Bound.

Did You Know? 8 Incredible Facts About Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
By Jim Fanning
Take one cat and two dogs who comically converse among themselves in human voices, separate them from their humans, and send them off on a perilous quest through the Sierra Nevadas to find their family, and you have Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey. This Disney hit, the popularity of which inspired a sequel in Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco (1996), is a remake of Walt Disney’s classic 1963 film The Incredible Journey . Released on February 12, 1993, this live-action comedy-adventure celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, so to fete the film and its two fidos, Shadow and Chance, and their feline friend, Sassy, here are some fascinating facts about this beloved Disney animal adventure.
1. The Incredible Journey Began with a Book… and a Movie The story of Homeward Bound : The Incredible Journey starts with The Incredible Journey , a top-selling book by Sheila Burnford. The author based her novel about the unstoppable animal trio on her own pets. Her three animals were her constant companions in England during World War II, and the pets were themselves inseparable. “They were closer than any other dog and cat relationship I have ever seen,” she said of her English Bull Terrier and Siamese cat. “Sleeping in the same basket, hunting and playing together, they made a lawless pair.” Later, a young Labrador was added to the mix, and the pup guarded the older dog when the Bull Terrier’s eyesight began to fail. It was this remarkable animal-kingdom kinship that inspired the author to write The Incredible Journey . Less than a year after its publication in 1960, the book became an international bestseller. Walt Disney immediately saw that this extraordinary story would make a compelling film. Released in 1963, The Incredible Journey became an iconic Disney animal film.
2. Two Oscar ® Winners Team Up One of the primary differences between the original film and Homeward Bound is that the animals talk. Since audibly revealing the thoughts of the pets is integral to the story, the casting of the actors who could convey personality with their voices alone was crucial. Consequently, the Homeward Bound filmmakers cast Academy Award ® -caliber talent. Two-time Oscar ® winner (For Best Actress in Norma Rae (1979) and Places in the Heart (1984)), Sally Field performs the voice of Sassy, the sophisticated Himalayan feline. As for the voice of Shadow, Don Ameche was signed to vocalize the wise Golden Retriever. A movie star from Hollywood’s golden era, Ameche experienced a popularity resurgence when he won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor for Cocoon (1985). Homeward Bound marked a return to Disney for Don as he had starred in the popular comedy The Boatniks (1970).
3. Fox Voices Dog When Emmy Award-winning TV and movie star Michael J. Fox voiced Milo Thatch in Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), animator John Pomeroy noted, “He was a virtuoso at the microphone, and he understood the situation and would improve it. He also improvised emotional nuances that weren’t in the script and made the character very sympathetic.” When Fox worked on Homeward Bound a few years earlier, he brought that same vocal skill to performing the voice of the enthusiastic American Bulldog pup, Chance.
4. The Animal Actors of Homeward Bound Each of the animal actors portraying the three four-footed leads worked for up to seven weeks before shooting even began. Each responded to voice and sound commands, and each was rewarded for its performance not with movie-star perks, but with liver treats. The heart of Homeward Bound is of course the unusual bond between the three, which meant normal canine and feline conflict had to be dealt with. “There are certain restrictions to working with dogs and cats together,” said head dog trainer Gary “Sam” Vaughn. “But there are rewards, too. By nature, they don’t get along. But our animals spent so much time together that they have become very close. These animals developed affections for each other and the actors that come through on screen.” Added veteran animal coordinator and trainer Joe Camp, “This is the first time where you have animals, not just performing a behavior, but actually their behaviors interacted between each other. They’re in a sense communicating with their partner.”
5. Beauties and the Beasts Homeward Bound has quite a Disney animation pedigree. Along with Donald W. Ernst, co-producer of Aladdin (1992), Kirk Wise, co-director of Beauty and the Beast (1991), served as executive producer . In that capacity, Wise supervised the writing and recording of the animals’ dialogue and was involved in casting the voice talents. Screenwriter Linda Woolverton came to Homeward Bound after penning the screenplay for Beauty and the Beast , while co-screenwriter Caroline Thompson also wrote Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas , released in 1993, the same year as Homeward Bound .
6. Stand-In Pets and Supporting Players Ben, Rattler, and Tiki, the main animals portraying Shadow, Chance, and Sassy, receive star billing in the film, but, in reality, Chance and Shadow were each played by four dogs, while Sassy was played by 10 cats. The additional animals were brought in to perform specialty actions or simply to give the lead animal performers a break. Other animals in the Homeward Bound cast include a mountain lion, an owl, black bears, a porcupine, and a skunk.
7. Chance, Sassy and Shadow’s Human Family The first Incredible Journey film adaptation focused primarily on the animals’ journey, but this later version was expanded to examine the special bond between a child and his pet, especially as exemplified by Peter (Benj Thall) and his relationship with Shadow. “There is a magic between children and animals that adults can’t touch,” observed co-producer Mack Bing. “This magic was evident on and off screen. There’s an almost visible chemistry in that special relationship that makes this film work.” Producer Jeffrey Chernov added, “To me, the most important part of this movie is about family. The human characters don’t start out as a solid family, but they grow into one.” The animals’ family is named Burnford in honor of the original book’s author.
8. Incredible Journey, Incredible Scenery Though the original book and movie took place in Ontario, Canada, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey is set in California as the pets’ trek takes them through the wilds of the Sierras. In reality the movie was filmed in Oregon. “Oregon is a popular site for filmmaking because of its varied topography,” location manager Mark C. Hughes said. ”In this film, we used parts of downtown Portland to substitute for San Francisco; eastern Oregon to serve as Bishop, California, and the Eagle Cap Wilderness area, which bears a striking resemblance to the Sierra Nevadas.” Filming took place from August through October 1991. Midway through the project, the film crew packed their cameras and equipment on mules and horses and rode more than 15 miles of protected wilderness areas into the Eagle Cap area in the Wallow Mountains for three days of filming in the forest. “My job was almost made easier by Mother Nature,” said production designer Roger Cain. “You look around to decide what needs to be done to the surroundings and realize that there’s no way you can improve on the grandeur of the scenery. I think that the audience will feel awed by how remote a journey these animals are on.”

Homeward bound: everything changed from the original '60s movie.
Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey is a classic, feel-good Disney movie, but there's another version of it with a fair share of differences.
Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey is a classic Disney film about two dogs and a cat trying to find their way back to their owners after mistakenly believing that they were abandoned, but the one most people are familiar with is hardly the only one to exist. The one most people would recognize released in 1993 and stars Michael J. Fox as a wily loner Bulldog named Chance, Sally Field a sarcastic Himalayan named Sassy, and Don Ameche as a wise old Golden Retriever named Shadow. The trio goes through a series of trials and tribulations on their way back home, and along the way, they even come to love each other as much as they love their owners.
It’s a very classic, feel-good movie from the nineties, but as previously stated, it’s not the only version of the story, with the live-action movie from 1993 being a remake of an older film, and both films are even adapted from a children’s book. Said book was written by Sheila Burnford and published in 1961. It was simply called The Incredible Journey , and it was adapted into a Disney film of the same name two years later in 1963. The two films don’t differ much regarding the basic story, but going beyond that is where divergences can be found.
Related: Aladdin: Biggest Differences Between The Live-Action & Animated Movies (So Far)
One major difference that can be noted right from the start is that the main characters in Homeward Bound all have their animal language translated into English, whereas the versions of them from The Incredible Journey are all silent . The story in the former is carried through the dialogue the animals share while the original from the '60s has its story moved forward through narration, resulting in a lot of the thoughts and feelings of the animals needing to be explicitly told as opposed to being inferred through dialogue. This, in turn, can cause The Incredible Journey to feel a lot slower than the remake, but that sort of style isn’t automatically a hindrance to an otherwise entertaining film.
Another difference is in the human characters and their overall relevancy to the Homeward Bound story. In the process of remaking the original Disney film from the sixties , Homeward Bound gave the animals’ owners, the Burnford-Seaver family, a decent amount of screentime showing how they react to the sudden disappearance of their pets, the efforts they go through to find them, and even how they bond as a family throughout the story. Meanwhile, The Incredible Journey has the animals’ owners, the Hunters, and their caretaker, John Longridge, in much more limited roles. As a result, their involvement in the story ends up becoming secondary to the animals their struggles.
There are also a variety of cosmetic differences between each film. Continuing on with the animals, The Incredible Journey ’s depiction of them is more in line with their depiction in the original book . As such, the characters who would become the remake’s leads are a Labrador named Luath, a male—as opposed to Sassy being a girl—Siamese cat named Tao, and an old Bull Terrier named Bodger; this also means that the roles and dynamic of Chance and Shadow are essentially a reversal of Luath and Bodger. Homeward Bound also has the story set in California as opposed to Ontario like The Incredible Journey and the original book, and the journey, itself, has a few differences in the remake, such as an encounter with a mountain lion, a prison break from a pound, and the original film’s climax of the animals getting caught in a blizzard being replaced with Shadow falling into a hole, spraining his leg, and needing Chance to talk him out of being left to die.
In conclusion, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey hits a lot of the same beats as The Incredible Journey from thirty years prior, but it still ends up becoming a different product. That being said, one isn’t automatically superior to the other, and when it comes down to it, both films have their own merits and are more than worth a watch.

Role in the films [ ]
Homeward bound: the incredible journey [ ].
Bob first appears at his home where the wedding is held and is married to Laura with her children, Peter, Hope, and Jamie from a previous marriage and Peter's dog, Shadow , attending. He hears a crash noise coming from inside the house and it was a lampshade being knocked down by Jamie's dog, Chance , who was been annoyed by Hope's cat, Sassy , but he and Laura ignored the noise and continue the wedding.
After the wedding, Bob and his family go to the farm owned by their friend, Kate , where they leave Shadow, Chance, and Sassy to be looked after her ranch's hand, Frank. Before leaving, Jamie plays Frisbee with Chance until Bob throws it, and Chance catches it for him.
A few days later, Bob received word from Kate and Frank that Shadow, Chance, and Sassy are no longer on her farm anymore due to them returning back home. Although saddened by this news, he is hesitant to seriously look for them.
"Trying to find three animals in the wilderness, is like...trying to find a needle in a haystack."
This causes Peter to scold him for leaving them at the farm. At work, at the university where he worked as a professor, his secretary enters his office and informs him that his students are waiting for him; he asks her for a favor to do a hundred print of the "Lost Pet Reward" and goes to where his students are waiting.
Sometime later Bob receives a call from the forest rangers whom he sent to look for Shadow, Chance, and Sassy, and informs him that they found Shadow, Chance and Sassy who helped a lost girl named Molly to find her parents and are in the Pineville Animal Shelter and Chance was getting medical treatment because of his muzzle being pinned by a porcupine earlier, to his delight, causing everyone in the lobby to look at him in confusion. Bob then informs Laura, Hope, and Peter, picks Jamie up during the middle of practice for a play, and apologizes to his teacher for the magic pumpkin that he accidentally breaks and will replace it.
However when Bob and his family finally arrived at the shelter, Shadow, Chance, and Sassy already escaped (because of Chance having mistaken the shelter for a pound), and the shelter staff apologizes to Bob and his family for failing to stop Shadow, Chance, and Sassy from escaping. He watches Peter calling out for Shadow in the darkness, and they returned home.
Near dusk, Bob, Jamie, Peter, and Hope are playing basketball, to which the kids begin to accept him as a second father figure when they hear barking coming from a distance and it was Chance, who then reunites with Jamie, followed by Sassy, except for Shadow who has fallen into a muddy pit at the train yard. Peter laments that Shadow is too old to make it. But Shadow appears in the distance limping (having injured his leg from the fall, and how he able to get out of the muddy pit is not shown), and is reunited with Peter. After being reunited with their pets, they all go inside to enjoy dinner.
Homeward Bound 2: Lost in San Francisco [ ]
Sometime after the first film and before the second film, Bob adopted Peter, Hope, and Jamie. Bob and his family are preparing to go to spent their vacation in Canada . He is carrying the things that they need for it. When Jamie and Chance return from playing baseball at the field by the park, they leave for the airport and board Chance, Shadow and Sassy in the back of their car.
At the San Francisco International Airport, Bob puts Chance and the others on their cage. He asks Jamie if he's gonna say goodbye to him, so that they could all board on the plane. At the plane, Peter asks Bob if Chance, Shadow and Sassy are gonna be okay and he replies that they are safe and sound below their feet.
However when Bob and his family arrive in Canada, they received a word that Chance, Shadow and Sassy had somehow escaped from the plane, due to Chance escaping from his cage mistakenly again thinking that he and the others will be taken to the pound and as well mistaken the airport for also a pound.
A few days passed at their rented home, Bob calls the San Francisco authorities to look for Shadow, Chance and Sassy, which they will and also need to watch out for some crooks named Jack and Ralph who are trying to steal dogs and bring them to their lab. He and his family then board on their rented car to go to the airport.
When Bob and his family finally arrive back in San Francisco, he hopes that Shadow, Chance and Sassy are already at home. While on the way, a container truck that was in front of them suddenly skidding to a stop, and Bob manages to avoid crashing right into it by putting their car to a stop. Hope then asks what happened and he replies it must be an accident and inform them to stay in the car, while he goes to check it. They then notice Shadow and Sassy coming down on a hill nearby, realizing that they already made it and are reunited with their pets. The truck driver then apologizes to Bob and asks him if he and his family are okay and he replies that they are fine and what happened and he replies that there was a dog in the middle of the road. It turns out it was Chance who was in the middle of the road and is reunited with Jamie.
At home, Bob and family meet and adopt a new dog named Delilah , Chance's love interest, a member of Riley 's gang and the former girlfriend of Bando , who Chance, Shadow, and Sassy met in San Francisco while on their way home and dealing with Ashcan and Pete and Jack and Ralph.

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey/Transcript
- View history
Chance: (narrating) My name is Chance.
I know it sounds odd, but most names do if you think about 'em long enough, maybe even yours.
I was abandoned when I was very young.
I lived on the streets, scrounging for food, sleeping wherever I could.
That seemed like fun at first, but pretty soon it landed me behind bars.
(Gate slamming shut)
But I don't like to talk about that.
Let's talk about after that when I got my second chance... and my name.
You see, this family came along, and... and, I guess you could say, they rescued me...
'cause they adopted me and brought me to live with them at their house.
But it was their home, not mine.
Still, it sure was an improvement over, well, over that other place.
Lots of space, fresh air, plenty of interesting things to explore... and all the underwear I could eat.
Sassy: You've just woke me up from a very deep catnap.
Chance: What's the matter, Sassy? You get up on the wrong side of the litter box?
Sassy: Even a very great beauty needs her beauty sleep!
Chance: Beauty sleep? You'd have to sleep for like... a month.
Sassy: Oh, you are such a typical dog.
Chance: (narrating) Indeed. The house was full of new clothes to be shredded... on account of the family was growing.
You see, Bob was joining the family by marrying Laura.
Her little girl was Hope. Hope belonged to Sassy.
Chance: (narrating) The little boy, Jamie, was supposed to belong to me, but I didn't need anyone else.
I was a loner.
Chance: (narrating) Still, I had to admit it, he did have a lot of very good ideas.
He was the one who named me Chance.
Laura's older boy was Peter.
He belonged to Shadow. Shadow was faithful.
Shadow was loyal. Shadow was a chump.
He just sat down there while I had all the fun upstairs.
Sassy: Chance, stop! The blouse is dead.
Chance: That's right, but I gotta shred it... into teeny, tiny little pieces, and I really...
I swallowed a button.
Sassy: Oh, what a shame! Too bad it wasn't a zipper.
Chance: Hey, you better beat it, powder puff, or you're gonna end up dog meat.
Sassy: Is that any way to speak to a petite dewdrop?
You big flat-faced butt-sniffer!
Peter: Shadow, down.
Shadow: I really should give that pup a talking-to.
Minister: Uh... I now pronounce you husband and wife.
You may kiss the bride.
Jamie: Ew! Ugh!
Chance: (sniffing) Who is this?
Somebody new, 'cause I never forget a face.
Oh, whoa! Food! Food! Hello, food.
Hey, wait, wh-whoa! Where ya goin'?
Hey, you with the food, drop it!
Drop it! Drop it!
They wanna serve that on the floor, I think.
Yeah, down here on the floor, kind of an alfresco thing.
I know what I'll do, I'll give him the look.
Chef: Sorry, fella, not for doggies.
Chance: Flying meat!
Ooh! Ah! Ah! Hot, hot, hot!
Shadow: I wonder if I could have that dog stuffed.
Chance: Yech! Green stuff! I hate that. Who eats this stuff?
Bingo! Now we're talkin' turkey.
Chance: Back off, old man!
You're just jealous 'cause I smelled it first.
Shadow: Would a rolled-up newspaper mean anything to you?
Chance: No. Why?
All right! Okay. Just wanted to smell it.
(Shadow barking again)
To make sure it was safe for people.
Shadow: I'm keeping my eye on you, pup.
Chance: Yeah, I'm just gonna go, uh... mingle.
Hey, how are ya? Nice to see ya! Hey, nice shoes. I should know.
Hey ya, bud. Nice tie. How're ya doin'?
You want me to show you a place where you can bury that food?
What do you think? Give me a little?
Ugh! Ptui! Hasta la vista.
What was that? Broccoli! Ptui!
Lady: They're not taking these pets to San Francisco with them, are they?
Grandma: No. Laura has a friend from college who has a ranch up near Bishop and she's agreed to keep the animals while they're gone.
Chance: Ladies, please, you gotta help me.
I'm starving, and I can't remember when I had my last meal and I'm an orphan and I'm weak and I'm helpless and if you don't feed me, I'll shrivel into a pile of bleached bones so please.
Lady: Shoo! Go on, shoo!
Chance: What, do you want, shake a paw, shake hands? Is that worth most of your food? All your food?
Lady: Shoo, I said. Go on.
Chance: Doesn't even know how to shake right. You need training.
Sassy: You need the training.
Chance: Ah, great. And I suppose you know a better way.
Sassy: Yes. I'll get food by acting like I don't want food.
Chance: That's stupid.
Sassy: I'll prove it.
Chance: You don't have to prove it. I believe you're stupid.
(Sassy meowing, purring)
Hope: Oh, Sassy, I wish we didn't have to go away.
I'm going to miss you so much.
Sassy: Just watch me work.
Hope: But it's shrimp. You like shrimp.
Sassy: I couldn't possibly. No, no, no, no.
Hope: Come on. It's good.
Sassy: I can't. I just can't.
I have those four pesky ounces still hanging on from Christmas.
Well, if you insist.
Hope: Told you.
Chance: It works. I don't believe it. Aw, a twofer.
Hope: Have another one.
Chance: I gotta remember this.
Sassy: It's like I said all along, poopsie:
Cats rule and dogs drool.
Chance: Get a life. Get nine of 'em.
Sassy: It's true.
Cats are smarter than dogs and more attractive... and we don't drink from the toilet.
Chance: Why not? Uh-oh. Moving food. Gotta go.
Must follow. Must follow. Must follow.
Peter: It's Peter against Shadow. He's coming up!
Shadow: I'm gonna get it, Peter.
Come on. I'm gonna get it.
Peter: Peter steals it!
Shadow: You gotta bounce it better than that, boy.
Peter: Shadow makes the jump. Peter takes it!
Shadow: Come on. I'm gonna get it.
Peter: Scores it!
Shadow: I can still do this pretty well, huh?
You're my favourite boy in the world.
Oh, I love you, Peter.
Chance: I hate this mushy stuff. I got a cake to catch.
Bob: Hey, guys.
You know, Shadow's gonna have a ball at Kate's ranch, aren't ya, boy?
Gonna be sunshine and fresh air, lots of room to run.
Peter: I still don't see why we can't take him to San Francisco with us.
Bob: Peter, I want him to be able to go as much as you do.
We gotta think about what's best for Shadow, don't we?
Peter: Well, yeah.
Bob: I mean, we're gonna be living in pretty tight conditions.
Besides, my work there is temporary.
We'll be back before you know it.
Peter: What if he doesn't understand? What if he thinks I abandoned him or something?
Bob: Are you kidding? He's gonna be so busy chasing horses... and bothering chickens, and you're gonna be busy.
There's tons of stuff for both of you guys to do.
Peter: There's tons of stuff we can do here, together.
Peter: Come on, Shadow.
Chance: Okay. Now, act like you don't want it.
Bob: Attention, everyone!
Chance: Goin' in.
Bob: My bride tells me it's time to cut the cake.
I hope you've all saved room because the mother of the bride made it herself.
Chance: Oh! Aw! I couldn't possibly. Really. I'm dieting.
Chance: I got a pound to lose off my hips and I'm...
Oh, man! Don't tell me to do that. Sorry.
Dig in everybody! There's plenty for everyone! Ha, ha!
Hope: No! Stay there.
You have to stay there or you can't play.
Chance: (snickering) Cats are smarter than dogs, huh? Right.
She doesn't even know the meaning of the word "stay".
Hope: No. Stay there!
Chance: The savage beast spots his unsuspecting victim.
Slowly he sneaks through the tall grass.
Chance: Moving in for the ambush.
Sassy: Keep away from me, you mutt!
Chance: He runs. He leaps!
Sassy: (screeching) Ooh!
Hope: My poor baby! Are you all right?
Sassy: He threw me in the big litter box!
Peter: Nice shot, Chance.
Chance: That's why they call it the catapult.
Shadow: You got a lot to learn, pup.
Sassy: Call the vet, now!
Hope: I'm telling Mom what your stupid dog did!
Sassy: I've never in my life! I think my fur is falling out!
I'm losing my fur!
Bob: Hey, it's time to hit the road, guys!
I wanna get going before it gets too late.
Shadow: Luggage? Why luggage?
Chance: I think... I need to eat some grass.
Jamie: That's Grandma's cake!
Peter: Yuck! Come on, Shadow.
Chance: (narrating) I learned an important lesson that day:
Cake and polyester don't mix.
You know, I was actually starting to like doing things with the whole family.
They weren't so bad, for people.
They were all so happy together. And Shadow, and even Sassy, seemed happy.
I was beginning to think that maybe this time, with this family, things were gonna be different, better.
Tah-dah! Bat dog!
Kate: Well, if it isn't the newlyweds!
Kate: How was the wedding?
Chance: Excuse me. Pardon me. Look out. Comin' through. Look out.
Whoa, this place is a smell-o-rama. Hallelujah!
I've died and gone to Kentucky!
Kate: Wish I could've made it.
Bob: We wish you could've been there.
Kate: Hey, you! Congratulations!
Laura: I don't know how to thank you enough for what you're doin'.
Kate: You're kiddin'. The more the merrier. I just have to take that one short trip I told you about.
Peter: You're going away?
Kate: I help drive the horses to winter grazing every year.
Just for a couple of days.
Peter: Who's gonna take care of Shadow and...
Kate: My neighbour, Frank. He always watches the animals while I'm gone.
Don't worry. He's very trustworthy. Do you have a minute to come in?
Bob: Wish we could, but we got a long way to go.
Jamie: Chance! Come here, boy! Chance!
Hope: This is Miss Kate, Sassy.
She's a nice lady, and she'll take good care of you.
Kate: Yes, ma'am.
Jamie: Hey, gimme that Frisbee! Here. Good boy, Chance.
Bob: How far can you throw that Frisbee?
Jamie: Pretty far.
Bob: Can you throw as far as that field over there?
Jamie: Maybe you better do it.
Chance: Hey! Now look what you did. You let it escape.
Don't worry. I'll wrestle it to the ground... and chew it up so good it'll never fly away again.
Jamie: I hope he doesn't forget me.
Peter: I'm gonna miss you so much.
Shadow: I know.
I know you're sad. I wish I knew why.
Peter: We'll be back to visit next week, okay? I promise.
Shadow: What's wrong?
Laura: Peter! It's time!
Shadow: Don't worry, Peter. I'm here to protect you.
Peter: Be a good dog.
Sassy: Hope, where are you going?
Kate: Good-bye, Hope. Bye-bye.
Shadow: All right, all right, all right. Easy on the fur coat.
Chance: I got it! I got it! It was crafty, all right, but I... Jamie?
Shadow: Peter. Wait.
Chance: Oh, no, not this.
Kate: Shadow? Chance?
Come on, fellas!
Bob: Come on, guys. We're gonna be back for a visit in a couple weeks.
Hope: I thought we'd be back next week.
Peter: Yeah, Mom. I told Shadow I'd see him next weekend.
Laura: Oh, honey, they don't know the difference.
Hope: Yes, they will.
Laura: You know we can't come back every weekend.
Peter: Two weeks then.
It can't be any longer, okay?
Bob: Okay. Two weeks. It's a deal.
Hope: Cross your heart?
Bob: Cross my heart.
Shadow: I just don't understand.
Who are you gonna get to watch over you?
Who's gonna wait for you to come home from school?
Who's gonna sleep at the foot of your bed?
You'll come back.
I know you'll come back.
Come on, boy! Come and get it!
Hey, Shadow, come on. Breakfast time. Come on, boy.
Come on. That's a boy.
Chance: Hey, which of you guys are regular and which ones are extra-crispy?
Hey, I know that noise. Kibble!
Kate: Come on. Breakfast time.
Chance: Kibble, kibble, kibble, kibble, kibble, kibble!
Gimme some! Kibble, kibble, kibble!
Kate: No! Get down, Chance!
Chance: Kibble, kibble, kibble, kibble...
Kate: No! Ow! Ow! Chance!
Chance: Where's the kibble?
Kate: There you go. Here you go, Chance.
Oh, Sassy! I'm sorry!
Sassy: Ooh! My beautiful tail!
Kate: Sorry, baby. Okay, look, here's your breakfast.
See? Here we go.
All right, it's your turn. Okay.
Sassy: You're supposed to warm it up.
Kate: Come on, girl. I'm so sorry.
Come on. Okay, come on.
Sassy: It's cold.
Well, don't expect a big tip from me.
I feel I'm going to be sick.
Hey, hey, stop! That's mine!
Chance: (burp) Yeah, well, you snooze, you lose.
Sassy: Ooh! Canines!
Chance: Whoa! You sick or what?
Hey, bath toys! Oh, oh! That's cold!
Come on, come on, come on. I'm not gonna hurt you. I just wanna chew on your neck.
(Sniffing) Whoa! What was that?
Whoa! What a pig!
Hey, what happened to your fur?
(Pig grunting loudly)
Excuse me, excuse me, but I'm the new chicken monitor here.
You gotta fix this dog door. It's a little small.
I'm afraid I may have left a very important bone here.
Here we go! Look out!
Ho! I got ya! Whoa!
Whoa! What the...
Help! It's Birdzilla!
I swear I'll never eat a McNugget again!
You guys won't believe some of the weird stuff they got around here.
They got this bird the size of a Rottweiler.
Looks like somebody ran over his head.
Oh, man, what are you waiting for? They're not coming back.
Shadow: That just shows you how little you know.
Chance: It's happened before... to me. People use you and lose you.
Shadow: Shame on you for betraying your boy.
Chance: Me betray him? Who ditched who?
I mean, not that I care. I can get along just fine without him.
Shadow: How dare you call yourself a dog.
Sassy: A cat would know better.
Shadow: Dogs are supposed to be faithful, loyal and true.
Chance: To people? Why?
Sassy: Didn't you even notice how sad Jamie looked when he left?
Chance: Sheesh! I'm sorry.
Man, I didn't know anybody cared so much.
Jamie: Ask her about Chance!
Laura: They're doing just fine.
Peter: Let me talk to Shadow.
Laura: Peter wants to talk to Shadow.
Kate: Peter, somebody here wants to say hello to you.
Peter: Shadow. Shadow?
Can you hear me, boy? Look, I know I promised we'd be back tomorrow, but we can't make it for another week, okay?
Shadow: I never understand a thing when they do this.
Sassy: Me neither, but you might as well humour them.
Kate: Did you hear that? He said hello.
Hope: What'd he say? What'd he say?
Peter: He said Chance ate Sassy.
Nah, I'm just kidding. He said Sassy loves it there.
Chance: (muffled) You know, I don't even miss the old place.
I mean, there's a lot more stuff to do here.
Sassy: Ugh! I miss it.
It's so much harder for a lady to keep clean here.
Kate: "Thanks again, Kate."
Shadow: How much longer? Peter should've been here by now.
Chance: Why don't you relax, Gramps? Find yourself a shoe.
Shadow: Oh, pups.
Sassy: Do you have any idea where that's been?
Chance: Oh, yeah. That's why I love it. You want some?
Sassy: I'm not into leather.
Shadow: Now, where's she going?
Kate: Okay, you guys. I'll be back in a couple of days.
Chance: A car ride! We're goin' on a car ride! Let's go! All right! Ow!
Kate: No, no, no. Sorry, boy.
Not this time. You stay here and be good.
Okay? Bye-bye. Frank'll be by to feed you later.
Shadow: Something's happening.
Sassy: What? What do you think it is?
Shadow: I don't know, but I don't like it.
Sassy: That's peculiar.
Chance: (Whining) Locked in. I hate being locked in.
This is just like it was back at the pound.
Sassy: Chance, calm down.
Chance: You don't get it, do ya?
The pound is where humans lock you up when they don't want you anymore.
Sassy: Not want me? Impossible.
Shadow: Don't listen to him.
He's just makin' it up to scare you.
Chance: Oh, yeah? You two pampered pets haven't been out on the streets like I have.
I've been to the pound, remember? Don't tell me there's no pound.
I know about the pound.
Shadow: Something doesn't smell right. They've been gone way too long.
Much longer than they should've been. Something's really wrong.
Chance: Wake up and smell the kibble. They dumped us.
Shadow: No! It isn't true!
Chance: They love you, and they dump you.
Shadow: Not Peter!
Sassy: You could be right, Shadow. It's been too much time, way too much time.
Shadow: Something is keeping Peter from coming to me, so I'm gonna go to him.
Chance: You guys kill me. She locked the gate, remember?
Shadow: I don't care about gates.
I'm going home.
Chance: What'd he say?
Sassy: Shadow, wait!
It's too far. You don't know the way.
What if they come back here looking for us?
Shadow: It's time to go, Sassy. I'm going home.
Sassy: It's crazy! Who'll feed you?
Chance: You won't make it out there on the road!
That's where they catch you and take you to the pound!
I'm stayin' right here. Huh?
Oh! Birdzilla returns!
Hey, guys, guys, wait up! Wait up! I'm comin'!
Don't let him eat me! Don't let him eat me! Oh!
Aah! Oh! Ugh!
Whoa! Ow! Did that hurt.
Look out, chicken broads. Comin' through! Pardon me.
Shadow: Home is just over that mountain. We'll be there before dark.
Sassy: How do you figure? It took us ages to get this far.
Shadow: That was the long way. We'll take the shortcut, straight up and over.
Chance: Hey! Wait up! Hey, guys, wait up!
Shadow: I thought you were gonna stay, pup.
Chance: I thought I better come along in case you two needed protection.
Sassy: My hero. Guess I'm gonna have to stare at your butt the whole way.
Shadow: I'll race you to the trees.
Chance: (narrating) And so began the most perilous journey of our lives.
Teacher: The Sierras extend to over 250 miles north and south... and to over 50 miles east and west.
This makes them the second largest mountain range in the western United States.
Sassy: Ow! I broke a nail! I broke a nail.
Shadow: Not much further now.
Chance: I think Little Miss Fur Ball needs a rest, don't you think?
Shadow: What's the matter, pup? Too much for a tough guy like you?
Chance: What are you talkin' about? I'm just sick of hearin' her whine.
Sassy: This ground isn't nearly soft enough. Ah! Ah!
Shadow: Almost there, Sassy.
Chance: I hate these package tours.
Frank: (Whistling) Here, dogs! Come on! (Whistles)
Kitty? Here, kitty, kitty!
"Thanks for feedin them...
"Old dog seems really homesick. Taking him and the other two..."
Taking 'em where? Cat on a stock drive? You gotta be kiddin' me.
Okay, okay. I know you're hungry. I'm comin'!
Sassy: I wanna be home where the tallest thing I have to climb is a bookshelf.
Shadow: Top's just ahead. You'll be able to see our house from there. Keep marching.
Chance: Don't worry. I'm gonna be glad to put this place behind me.
First of all, there's way too many new smells to learn.
Not to mention, I got about ten million trees to mark, and I don't know about you but I am running on empty.
Chance: Whoa! Get a load of this.
You could see everything from up here.
Except the house. I don't see the house. Where's the house, Shadow?
Sassy: Well, thank you, Shadow.
It's been simply a divine vacation, but I think I'll just stay here and wait for the bus.
Chance: Hey, where you goin'? Where's he goin'?
Shadow: I told you. I'm going home.
Sassy: You can't be serious.
Shadow: I have to go. Peter might be in trouble.
Chance: You look around. We're in trouble. Home's not that way. Can't you smell straight?
Shadow: Oh, it's out there. I have a sixth sense. You'll have it... one day.
Sassy: Shadow, you're not as young as you used to be.
Shadow: I'm going home, Sassy, that's all. Now, you two coming or not?
Chance: Look, there's no way I'm gonna let an old-timer like you go it alone.
I'll be your guard dog.
Shadow: This isn't a game, pup. If you're coming, you're gonna have to keep up.
Chance: All right. Hey. Don't worry about me. I got the stuff. It's you I'm worried about.
Sassy: You two are really gonna go off and leave me here?
Shadow: You wait for that bus. You'll do fine.
Chance: We'll send you a dead bird when we get there.
Sassy: I prefer to do my own shopping.
Shadow: Au revoir, Sassy!
Sassy: Hey! All right. All right. Wait up!
I can't believe I'm following... a couple of irresponsible, misguided, mangy canine plague lifters.
Chance: (narrating) There was more to that old boy than I'd given him credit for.
I was soon to learn just how much more, but even in that moment I had to admire his faith, wherever it might lead us.
Chance: Check it out! What kind of animal made that?
Shadow: That? You don't wanna know.
Chance: Whoa! That's as big as Sassy.
Sassy: Thanks, darling.
Chance: Whew! But it smells better.
Sassy: At least I don't roll in it like some species.
Oh, right. Like if you yap at it, it's gonna come right down and ask you to eat it.
Chance: What's that smell? (Sniffing) That smells interesting.
Whoo-hoo-hoo! I never thought anything could smell too much.
Hey! Shadow, wanna have some fun? Go stick your head in that hole.
Shadow: Pace yourself, pup. We got a long way to go.
Chance: Don't sweat it, pops! I could go on like this for days!
Ugh! I'm too pooped to poop.
Chance: I can't sleep. Too tired to sleep.
I'm tired and I'm hungry.
And this place is spooky. I don't like it here. Gives me the creeps.
Sassy: Oh, 'fraidy cat... I mean, dog.
Shadow: You two pipe down and go to sleep.
Shadow: Now what?
Chance: There's somethin' out there.
Shadow: Enough, Sassy! Now, sleep.
Chance: I'm tellin' you guys there's something out there.
What was that?
Something's out there. What do I do? What do I do?
Shadow: Stay right where you are.
Chance: What is it?
Shadow: A moose, probably.
Chance: Oh, a moose. What's a moose?
Shadow: A big razor-toothed animal. Comes out at night to eat the tails off smaller animals.
Shadow: Uh, uh, don't worry. I'll, I'll protect you.
Sassy: Of course, mooses can't climb trees.
Shadow: Don't have to.
They can reach right up to the top. You'll be safer on the ground with us.
Sassy: Me, Sassy, sleep in the dirt?
Chance: Well, look who's down in the dirt with the dogs.
Sassy: Ugh! Dog breath! Blech!
Shadow: Up and at 'em, you two! I've found our breakfast.
Chance: Great. I hope it's garbage.
Shadow: No. Even better.
Sassy: With you two gourmets, I can just imagine.
Chance: Fine. Stay here and diet.
Sassy: Are you calling me fat?
Chance: Of course not, for a hippopotamus.
Aah! I meant to do that.
Sassy: Ha, ha! Serves you right.
Chance: There's one. No, wait, there's one.
Shadow, how'd you get one of these?
Chance: Oh. Wait, there's...
Sassy, help me out here, will ya? I'm starvin'.
Sassy: Say it first.
Sassy: Say it!
Chance: Okay. Cats rule and dogs drool.
Sassy: I can't hear you.
Chance: Cats rule and dogs drool! Ya happy?
Sassy: Thank you, precious.
Chance: You're welcome, cupcake.
Sassy: (Humming) Whoo! There you go.
Chance: Hey, thanks.
Whoa, fish! Sit! Hey, fish! Ho!
Whoa, here you go! Stop! Sit! Sit!
Stay, fish, stay! Roll over!
(Black bears growling)
Hey, hey, scram! Get your own fish.
Shadow: Careful, pup.
Chance: No. No. We didn't invite these guys.
Get outta here! Buzz off, ya party crashers! Go steal some porridge!
(Black bear growling)
Chance: You guys catch that? I smoked 'em.
Shadow: I wouldn't be so cocky, Chance.
Chance: Hey, whoa, whoa. Time out.
Look, when Chance scares somebody off, they be gone.
Sassy: Uh, Chance.
Chance: Lousy punks. Think 'cause they're bigger than me... they can steal my fish, well, they ain't even that big.
Shadow: (Barking) Chance, get away from there.
Chance: What... is this? Uh...
Gosh, you look hungry. May I... recommend the trout?
(Grizzly bear growling)
Shadow: Well, looks like we don't have any choice but to go straight across.
Sassy: Chance, when will you grow up? That bear could've eaten you.
Do you realize how painful that would've been... for the bear?
Chance: Oh, go hawk up a hair ball.
Sassy: Oh, yeah, that hurt. Ooh! Really hurt!
Shadow: Sassy, Chance, I'm sorry, but we're gonna have to cross here.
Sassy: There isn't a bridge here.
Shadow: Come on.
Sassy: I don't see any stepping-stones.
Chance: Hey, wait up.
Shadow: It's gentle here, Sassy. You could swim across.
Sassy: I don't have to swim. I have a note.
Shadow: It's fun to swim. Come on. You'll like it.
Sassy: Except for the water part.
Shadow: Come on, you two.
Chance: Don't be such a sissy, Sassy.
Sassy: You know how to swim?
Chance: I happen to be a champion dog paddler.
Banzai! Oh, that's cold!
Oh, that's cold.
Shadow: It's easy, Sassy.
Sassy: I prefer the dry look. (Meows)
Chance: I think I shrank in there!
(Sassy meows angrily)
Shadow: Please don't make that noise, Sassy. I'll come back and swim beside you.
Sassy: Don't bother. I'll find my own way across.
Shadow: The water just gets worse further down.
Where is sh... Sassy!
Sassy: I can't believe what they want me to do.
Just so they can have the pleasure of my company?
Shadow: She just doesn't want to get wet. She can swim. She can.
Sassy: She won't. She won't, she won't, she won't.
She won't, she won't, she won't, she won't.
Ah, this is more like it.
I'm so clever I amaze myself.
Shadow: Will ya look at that?
Sassy: Cats rule and dogs drool.
Chance: Jumpin' rocks.
Typical cat move.
Shadow: Good girl, Sassy.
You all right?
Sassy: Never better.
Never better! Ooh! Ahh! Yes!
Shadow: Well, good work.
Sassy: Ah! Oh! I just had this coat cleaned.
Sassy: Oh, help! Help!
Shadow: Sassy's in the river, Chance.
Sassy: Shadow! Ugh! Oh!
Chance: Hang on, Sassy!
(Sassy coughing, choking, meowing)
Shadow: Sassy, I'm coming. Keep your head above water!
Sassy: Oh, Shadow...
Shadow, help me!
Help me! Shadow!
Shadow: Sassy, swim. Swim hard.
Sassy: Please... help! (Yowls)
Shadow: Sassy! Sassy!
Sassy: Shadow! OH!
Shadow: (Whimpering) Oh, no.
Chance: Did you find her? Where is she?
Shadow: I couldn't reach her, but we've got to keep trying.
Hurry! Maybe she made it to the other side.
Chance: I-I don't see her, Shadow, do you?
Shadow: No. It swallowed her up.
I shouldn't have made her come.
Chance: It's not your fault. She wanted to come.
Shadow: But it's my responsibility.
I had a responsibility to Sassy... to love her and protect her... the same as I have to you... and to Peter.
And the same as you have to Jamie.
Chance: But... we didn't ask for this job.
Shadow: We didn't have to. It's built in.
Has been ever since the dawn of time... when a few wild dogs took it upon themselves to watch over man, to bark when he's in danger, to run and play with him when he's happy, to nuzzle him when he's lonely.
That's why they call us man's best friend.
Chance: (narrating) Looking at him that night, he seemed so wise... and ancient, like the first dog that ever walked the Earth.
I just hope that one day I can be like him.
Shadow: I'll miss you, Sassy.
Quentin: There you are. Master of the sky.
You're the boss.
Third sighting in four months.
Not bad at all.
You poor thing.
How did you get way out here?
Get you all cleaned up here now. Yeah.
Quentin: What's a classy dame like you... doin' way out here in the sticks?
Sassy: (Weakly) Shadow.
Quentin: Some rest.
Quentin: Some food.
Sassy: Shadow? Shadow.
Quentin: Be all right.
Shadow: You'll never catch anything if you're not patient.
Chance: I can't help it. I'm starving. (Barks)
Shadow: I'm starving too, but you have to be patient.
Stop barking. You'll scare everything away.
Don't move a muscle.
Chance: I won't. I won't.
Shadow: And wait till I say go.
Chance: Say what?
There goes the bunny.
There goes the pup.
There goes breakfast.
Chance: Uh! I hate fast food.
Shadow: That's it, pup. You're on your own.
Chance: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'll do it right.
Give me a second chance.
Shadow: That was your second chance, Chance.
Chance: Give me a third chance. Come on. Please! I'm starvin'!
Shadow: All right. One last time.
Chance: How did Sassy do this? I don't want it. I don't want it.
I don't want it. I! I! I! I don't want it!
Shadow: Sassy'd love to see this.
Chance: Ah! (Whines and sighs)
Frank: Welcome home!
Frank: Been watching for you all morning. How was it?
Kate: Oh, boy, that trail gets longer every year. I need a nice soak in a hot tub.
Frank: How'd the animals take to it?
Kate: The horses?
Frank: No. The dogs and cat.
Frank: You didn't take 'em with ya?
Kate: You don't take pets on a stock drive.
Frank: That's what I thought, but your note said you'd taken 'em.
Park Ranger: No, ma'am. I gotta tell ya, domesticated animals... wouldn't stand a chance out here.
We've got bears, mountain lions. These are serious predators.
Kate: Is there anybody else in the Park Service I can call?
Oh, would you? Oh, I'd appreciate it.
Oh, I gave you my number, didn't I? Oh, good.
Yeah, it's just a shot. Bye.
Frank: You've done everything you can.
Kate: Not everything.
Peter: Well, maybe we can go look for them.
Bob: I really don't think we're gonna be able to do that, guys.
Peter: Why couldn't we?
Bob: Look, Peter, we all miss 'em.
We're gonna do everything we can to find 'em, but we have to be patient.
Peter: We have to do something.
Bob: Trying to find three animals in the wilderness... is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
I think we need to be realistic.
Peter: I don't care what you think.
I told you he'd think I abandoned him.
But you made us come anyway!
It's your fault! It's all your fault!
(Peter slams door)
Research Assistant: Professor?
Research Assistant: They're waiting for you.
Research Assistant: Dean Maxwell and the Grant Committee.
Bob: Oh, I forgot.
Print! Print, you stone-age piece of junk.
Research Assistant: Professor.
Bob: Yeah, yeah, okay, okay.
Listen, um, could you do me a big favour, please?
Have 50... No. Have 100 of those printed up as a personal favour to me.
I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
Chance: Hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry.
Chance: First thing I'm gonna do when I get back is raid the trash can.
Shadow: I just want to see Peter.
Chance: Yep, straight into the garbage.
Snout first. Darn good eatin'.
Sassy: Oh, no. I'm with strangers.
And I look like something the dog dragged in.
Quentin: Well. You made it through the night.
I guess that means you're gonna be okay.
Think you can keep some milk down?
Sassy: Was that my sixth life?
Oh, I'll just say it was my fourth.
Quentin: Here you go.
Nice, warm goat's milk, compliments of Aretha.
Sassy: (Meows) Hey, this isn't low fat, but, uh, it is pretty good.
Chance: Remember hot dogs?
Never much liked the name.
Chance: I don't think they're really made out of dog.
Shadow: I don't think they're made of meat.
Chance: They taste the best when they fall in the dirt.
(Mountain lion snarling)
Did you know Peter used to slip me broccoli under the table?
Chance: Yuck! Gag me with roughage!
(Mountain lion growling)
Shadow. Shadow, Shadow.
(Muffled) Shadow! Shadow! Shadow! Shadow!
Shadow! Shadow! Shadow!
Chance: There's a b-b-big, a c-c-ca...
A huge cat!
Shadow: Balderdash! You're smelling things.
Now, stop scaring the fish.
Chance: Bu-but it was there!
I-I didn't just smell it! I...
There it is again! Shadow! Sh-Shadow!
Shadow: Young dog, just...
(Mountain lion yowling)
Chance: I'm such a wimp! I'm runnin' from a cat!
Shadow: I won't tell if you won't.
Chance: Of course, this isn't your ordinary house cat!
I mean this is like Arnold Schwarze-kitty!
Listen, if I don't make it, I got a pile of bones buried in the backyard.
Shadow: We'll make it.
Chance: And I...
I knew it! We're trapped! We're goners!
Look, the bones are buried next to the jungle gym.
The TV remote control is under the seesaw.
Shadow: Seesaw? Seesaw!
Chance, you're a genius!
Chance: I am not! What's a genius?
Shadow: Never mind. This is gonna take teamwork.
(Mountain lion growling, roaring)
Chance: I sure hope this works.
Shadow: Get ready, Chance. Here he comes.
He's right behind me. Wait for my signal, okay? And get down.
Here, kitty, kitty, kitty.
(Mountain lion roaring)
Come on. Come on.
Get ready, Chance.
Chance: I'm ready, I'm ready.
Shadow: Not yet.
Chance: Hey, cut it out.
Shadow: Chance, now!
Chance: Hasta la vista, kitty!
Shadow: Yeah! We did it!
Chance: Wow! Couple of geniuses! Right, Shadow? Yes! Look at that!
Hey! Hey! Dogs rule... and cats drool! (Laughing) Whoo!
(Shadow and Chance barking)
Sassy: What's that?
Shadow? Shadow! And Chance!
Quentin: All right, all right.
But take care of yourself now.
And steer clear of the river!
Sassy: Come on, guys, keep barkin'. Let me know where you are.
P.U.! They were here, all right.
Chance: You were great! You were like Rin Tin Tin!
Shadow: Like who?
Chance: Rin Tin Tin! Don't you ever watch TV?
Shadow: Ah! That's not real!
Chance: Oh, it is too!
Shadow: You can't smell it, can you?
Chance: Anyway, you were great.
Shadow: Okay, thanks, Chance.
Chance: Couldn't be.
Sassy: My boys! My boys!
Chance: Sassy! Sassy! Sass... Gopher hole!
Sassy: Chance! Shadow!
Sassy: Shadow! I thought I would never see you again!
Shadow: Sassy, you're alive!
Sassy: Oh, I missed you so!
Shadow: Oh, I missed you so much, Sassy.
Chance: Yeah, me too.
Chance: Yeah, well, we could use you around.
Sassy: I missed you too, Chance.
Chance: Hey, can we go fishing now, Sassy?
Sassy: Chance, you are hopeless, but all right.
Let's go fishin'.
Chance: Yes! Fish, fish, fish, fish, fish!
Shadow: Great fish, Sassy. Full stomach sure feels good.
Chance: Yeah, I pigged out.
Sassy: (Burp) Oh, excuse me.
Shadow: We'd better get a move on. We can still make a few miles before dark.
Sassy: I'd give anything to have Hope scoop me up in her arms right now.
Chance: Yeah, I can't wait to see the look on Jamie's face when we come strollin' up.
Shadow: Jamie? I thought you didn't care about him.
Chance: Why, of...
Hey! Check it out! Intruder at 4 o' clock!
Sassy: What is that?
Chance: You got me.
I think it's a squirrel havin' a bad hair day.
Shadow: Leave it alone, Chance!
Chance: Are you kiddin' me? I gotta check this out.
Hey, you, pal!
Shadow: No, don't! Doesn't smell right.
Chance: Will you look at this guy? This is like mondo bizarro.
All right, pal. You know the routine. Assume the position.
I sniff you; You sniff me. Hey, hey.
Hey, where you goin'? Did I say you could go?
Come back here. Hey, what about that hair?
What, you stick your tongue in a toaster, huh?
Aah! He bit me with his butt!
Shadow: Chance, you really are a bulldog, aren't you?
Chance: (Whining) I was just curious!
Sassy: Like my mother always said, "Curiosity killed the dog."
Shadow: Sassy, can you pull those things out?
Sassy: I'll try.
Chance: (Groaning) Sassy, Sassy, you got my lip!
You got my... lip.
Sassy: It's all right, I'm a professional.
Shadow: They look like they're in deep.
Sassy: Really deep.
Shadow: Whatever you do, don't lick yourself.
Punk: Come on, man. I didn't do nothin'.
Policeman: Right in here, just tell us. Through the door.
Punk: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Peter: Excuse me.
Police Chief: Yeah?
Peter: I need some help finding a member of my family.
Police Chief: Mm-hmm.
Peter: Actually three members of my family.
Police Chief: How long they been missing?
Peter: They ran away about a week ago.
Police Chief: Your name?
Peter: Peter Burnford.
Police Chief: Where are your parents?
Peter: They, they don't know I'm here.
Police Chief: You better give me their names.
Peter: Laura Burnford, that's my mom.
And my dad... Well, her husband's name is Bob Seaver.
Police Chief: I need a physical description of the missing persons.
Peter: Well, there's Shadow. He's got brown eyes and sandy-coloured hair.
And Sassy's got blue eyes. She's Himalayan.
Police Chief: Himalayan?
Peter: That's right.
And Chance is... Well, he's white with black spots.
Police Chief: Black spots?
Police Chief: Look, kid, this is the San Francisco Police Department.
We can't go chasin' after stray cats and dogs!
I'm sorry, but we got more important things to do.
Peter: This is important to me, and my brother and sister.
What are we supposed to do, just forget about them?
Police Chief: Let me tell you something that might help you out.
Sometimes when we're lookin' for a suspect, we make up these reward posters and we put 'em up all over the city.
Now, sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. But... it's a shot.
Peter: Yeah, maybe I'll do that.
Police Chief: Hey, kid, good luck.
Laura: Peter, do you want me to help you find something?
Peter: Mom? Who made these?
Laura: Bob did.
Peter: He did?
Laura: Yeah, he sent them everywhere.
Peter: Why didn't he say anything about it?
Laura: After the way you talked to him... the other night, I think he's afraid to even look at you.
And he didn't want to get your hopes up.
Peter: Has anyone called?
I miss Shadow, Mom.
Laura: Oh, honey.
Peter: I really miss him.
Laura: I know you do.
Shadow: You gonna make it, Chance?
Chance: Yeah, sure.
You go ahead, Sassy. (Groaning)
Sassy: Oh, no.
Don't worry, Chance.
The water... I... It isn't so bad.
Sassy: No, really.
If we can just hold his head above the water...
Shadow: Wait. Listen.
Chance: Now what?
Shadow: I don't know. Stay there. I'll find out.
Molly: (Crying) Mommy! (Crying, gasping)
Shadow: No... don't be afraid. Good dog.
Shadow: Sassy? Chance?
Sassy: Poor thing, she's lost.
Chance: Yeah, I know how she feels.
Shadow: It's okay.
People: (Shouting) Molly! Molly!
Sassy: (Yawning) Shadow, is that people?
Shadow: Yes, I'm going to find them.
Chance: No! No strangers, Shadow. They'll take us to the pound and lock us up!
We'll never come out again.
Shadow: They're just lookin' for the little girl, Chance.
She needs us. We have to help.
Chance: Oh! I hope you know what you're doin'.
I don't wanna go back there again ever.
Shadow: Don't worry.
Sassy, you keep her warm. I'll be right back.
Sassy: Hurry, Shadow. (Meowing)
Molly's Dad: What is it, old fella?
Molly's Dad: Molly! Molly!
Molly: (Gasping) Daddy!
Molly's Mom: Molly honey!
Molly: (Crying) Mommy!
Molly's Mom: (Crying) Are you okay?
Chance: I'm not so sure about this.
Shadow: It's gonna be all right.
Molly's Dad: Thank you for saving my little girl's life.
Chance: Uniforms. They've got uniforms. It's okay.
Shadow: They're here to help.
Lady Ranger: Hey, wait a minute. I know you guys.
Mark, get over here. Look at this.
Mark, these are the animals that were on the flyer we got.
Mark: I can't believe it.
Lady Ranger: These are them.
Mark: This guy's in pretty bad need of a vet.
Lady Ranger: Okay, guys. Okay, guys. You're goin' home.
Shadow: Home? Home!
Lady Ranger: Oh yeah, you're goin' home.
Is this a Robert Seaver?
Yo... You found them? That's great!
Lady Ranger: They're okay.
They've been taken to the Pineville Animal Shelter on Route 90.
Bob: Thank you! Yes!
Peter: Yes! Oh, yes! All right!
Hope! Come on!
Miss Winters: All right, children, now, settle down, settle down.
All right, now, let's see.
Bob, Laura, Peter and Hope: We found 'em!
Miss Winters: What? Found who?
Laura: Yes, yes.
Bob: Sorry about the magic pumpkin, Miss Winters. We'll replace it.
Shadow: Wait a minute.
We've turned around.
Chance: What do you mean?
What are you talkin' about?
Shadow: This isn't right. Home's the other way.
Chance: They took us to the pound! I told you!
This is it! This is the end of the line!
We gotta get outta here!
Shadow: Just calm down!
Chance: No! You don't understand! Dogs and cats come in here... and they disappear and you never see them again!
Shadow: It's okay, Chance. These people are only trying to help.
Foote: Calm down. Nobody's gonna hurt you!
Chance: Shadow! Help!
Shadow: Hey! (Muffled)
Chance: Shadow! Shadow! Shadow, help!
Foote: It's okay. Come on. It's okay.
Chance: Oh, no, don't let 'im take me in the back room!
No! Shadow! Please! Help me! Shadow!
Shadow: Run, Sassy, run! Save yourself!
Mark: Okay, missy, your turn.
No! Wait a minute! Kirkwood!
Kirkwood: Family's gonna be here real soon.
Shadow: So this is it. Chance knew all along.
Mark: Took off that way. Can't be too far.
Foote: Here, kitty, kitty, kitty. Kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty.
Sassy: "Here, kitty, kitty, kitty." Not on your life, chubby.
Foote: Here, kitty, kitty, kitty.
Here, kitty. Scat!
Darn. Here, kitty, kitty, kitty.
Sassy: No, dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy.
Foote: Dumb... cat!
Sassy: Oh! What a bozo!
Vet: Hold on, boy.
Take a look at you.
Chance: Hey, what are you guys gonna do?
Vet: You are one lucky pup, yes.
Chance: Hey, hey, get your paws off me.
Sassy: I just got those two back.
Hmm? And I will not lose them now. Oop.
Oh, yeah. Chow down, chubby.
Chance: Oh! Okay! Okay, I'll talk.
I... left the gift on the carpet!
I let Sassy take the heat for the time...
I unrolled the toilet paper all over the house.
I stole underwear on three occasions. Yike!
Okay, okay! Four, four!
Kirkwood: It's all right. It's okay.
Doberman: Hey, kitty. Hoo, hoo.
Rottweiler: Hey, shake that tail, baby!
Sassy: I don't believe it. Catcalls.
Beagle: Ha, ha, nice whiskers, baby!
Sassy: So, big fella, what are you in for?
Shadow: Sassy? Sassy!
Sassy: Shh! Keep it down.
Shadow: I told you to run away.
Sassy: I never listen to dogs.
Shadow: They took him into the back room.
I think something awful is happening to him.
Chance: Ow! Ow! Please stop! Please stop!
Oh, just let me die!
Shadow: They're killing him, Sassy.
Man: Knock it off!
Foote: Hey, cat. How'd you get in here?
Sassy: I'll take care of Tubbo. You get Chance. Whoo!
Foote: I'm comin' back for you.
Shadow: Attagirl, Sassy.
Sassy: All right, this way, Thunderbutt!
Shadow: Chance! Can ya hear me, Chance?
Chance: Ow! Shadow! Shadow, please help me!
Kirkwood: How'd he get out?
Vet: I don't know.
Chance: Don't let them hurt me any more! Please!
Sassy: Whoo-hoo! This way.
No, this way. Just don't fall on me.
Okay, come on this way. That-a-boy.
Am I bad? Oh, yes.
Chance: Enough already.
Hey, Shadow! Are you there?
Shadow: I'm out here, Chance.
Chance: Well, get in here.
Kirkwood: See, old fella, your friend...
(Shadow barking and growling)
Shadow: Get outta here. Run, Chance! Run for it!
Chance: Where's Sassy?
Shadow: She's on a secret mission.
Sassy: I'm bad, I'm bad. I... Oooh! Ow!
(Growling) That hurts.
Foote: Got ya.
Shadow: Watch it! Watch it!
Chance: Let her go!
Shadow: Come on!
Sassy: This way, guys!
Foote: Kirkwood! Kirkwood!
Sassy:Hurry! Come on!
Shadow: Dig, dig. Dig, Chance, dig.
Chance: I'm tryin'! I'm trying! Aah!
Chance: (Whimpering) Oh, no! I'm stuck!
Sassy: Hurry! Here he comes!
Shadow: Hurry up, Chance!
Chance: Aaah! It's choking me!
Foote: You come back to Daddy. Come on.
Foote: Come on.
Chance: Get off of me! Shadow!
I ain't goin' back! No! No way!
(Shadowing barking fiercely)
Kirkwood: If I didn't know better, I'd think they'd planned this.
Hope: You know, if you hadn't made those flyers, we'd probably never find them.
Bob: Well, it was a long shot, but we got lucky.
♪ I told the witch doctor I was in love with you ♪
Laura: ♪ Bum-bum-bum ♪
Chance: Boy, Shadow, the way you nailed that vet.
You're a regular action figure.
Shadow: Oh, it was nothing... next to you trippin' that big guy, splat!
Sassy: Ahem. Not to mention...
Chance: Yeah, Sassy the super cat.
Seavers: ♪ I was in love with you Bum-bum-bum-bum ♪
♪ And then the witch doctor He told me what to do ♪
♪ He said that Oo-ee-oo-ah-ah ♪
Chance: Sure, cats are agile, but dogs have brute strength.
Sassy: Well, that may be, but...
Shadow: Hey, hang on just a minute.
Chance: Come on, come on. Let's go, guys.
Shadow: No, wait.
Sassy:What is it, Shadow?
Shadow: I don't know. I got a funny feeling all of a sudden.
Like something's telling me to go back the other way.
Chance: What, back to the pound? What is he, crazy?
Shadow: Yeah, you're right.
Chance: (narrating) Shadow and Sassy had risked their lives for me.
I never knew I'd have friends like that.
The feeling was all very new to me.
I liked it.
Kirkwood: I'm sorry this worked out this way, sir.
Bob: Yeah, me too. Thanks.
Hope: Let's keep looking, Mom. They were just here!
Laura: Honey, that was hours ago.
I mean, they could be miles away by now.
Listen to me. The people here have promised to do everything they can.
And, and they'll call us the minute they get word.
We came so close to gettin' 'em back.
At least we know they're alive.
If the animals made it this far, they just might make it all the way home.
Bob: We can't give up.
Chance: We goin' in circles? That tree smells familiar.
Shadow: Of course it does. It's pine.
Sassy: (Gasp) Hurry up!
Oh, look, you guys. We made it!
Chance: Wow! Shadow, this is incredible. You were right all along.
Sassy: Oh, isn't that the most beautiful sight you ever saw?
Shadow: Come on, you two. Let's go home.
Chance: (narrating) Even now I don't really know how he did it.
But there we were, finally... looking down at the road that would lead us home.
Shadow: Home is just beyond these tracks.
We should be there before dark.
Sassy: I've heard that before.
Shadow: Just be very careful.
Come on, you two. Watch carefully where you're going. Look both ways.
Stay with me. Hurry up now.
Sassy: Not so fast.
Shadow: Come on. Hurry up.
Come on! Come on!
Sassy: I'm coming! Wait up!
Shadow: You all right, Sass?
Sassy: Me? I laugh at danger.
Chance: Me too, but I'll laugh later. Let's get outta here.
Sassy: I'm so sick of nature I could puke.
After this I intend to live indoors on a velvet cushion... filled with bird feathers and be served fillet of mouse on a silver platter...
Shadow: All right, Sassy. We're nearly home. Come on...
Sassy: Oh, Shadow.
Chance: Poor old guy.
Chance: Are you okay?
Shadow: Yeah. My leg hurts pretty badly.
Sassy: Is it broken?
Shadow: I don't know. It's hard to move it.
Chance: Hey, hey, look at this. It's not as steep over here, Shadow.
Maybe you can climb out here.
Shadow: I'll try. (Whimpering)
Chance: Come on, come on. You can do it! You got us this far.
Chance: Yeah, that's it.
That's it. Great, keep comin'.
Sassy: Come on. If you can jump in a river to save me, this should be easy!
Chance: Yeah, that's right. And after outrunning a mountain lion! Come on.
Sassy: Come on, Shadow!
Chance: That's good!
That's good. Take it slow now, take it slow.
One step at a time. One step at a time, Shadow.
Sassy: Oh, oh, hang on!
Chance: Come on. Come right back. Come right back!
Come on. You're so close.
Sassy: Oh, Shadow!
Chance: No, no, no, don't lie down. Don't lie down!
Shadow: Sorry. I can't make it.
Chance: Why not? Of course you can make it.
Sassy: Try, Shadow. Please try.
Shadow: I just can't.
Chance: (Whining) Look, you pushed me this far. Now I'm pushin' you the rest of the way!
You know, back there in the woods even when things looked really bad, I always believed we'd make it 'cause I thought you were too stubborn to quit.
Well, you're not gonna quit. Not now, not when we're this close!
Now try again!
Shadow: Do you think it's easy for me to admit I can't do it?
I'm too old.
Chance: That's not true. There's nothing you can't do.
Shadow: I have nothing more to give, Chance, and it's time for you to be on your own.
Chance: But I want you with me.
I love you, Shadow.
Shadow: You've learned everything you need, Chance.
Now all you have to learn is how to say good-bye.
Chance: (Whimpering) I won't let you give up.
Grandma: Now, I can't stay but a minute, but here's a "welcome home" pie for you.
Laura: Oh, thank you.
Grandma: Where are the kids?
Laura: They're out in the backyard with Bob.
I know he's gonna break his neck.
Grandma: How are they doing? Um...
Laura: They're much better now that we're back at home.
Jamie: Burnford goes for the slam! Yes!
Jamie: We win!
Hope: Me next! Me next!
Bob: Hope, I think I'm gettin' too old for this stuff.
Hope: Oh, please, Daddy, please!
Peter: Yeah, come on, Dad.
Bob: (Chuckles) Okay.
Get up. Come on.
Bob: Now, don't let go whatever you do.
Hope: I won't.
Bob: Hold on. Here we go! (Laughing)
Jamie: Did you hear that?
Bob: Hear what?
Hope: It's a dog!
Laura: Okay, guys, turkey's on the table...
Laura: Oh, no, honey, it's not...
Jamie: Here, Chance! Here, boy!
Hope: I know that bark. It is him!
Jamie: Chance! Chance!
Jamie, my boy!
Jamie: Oh! Yes! Yes!
Chance: Yes! Jamie! Jamie!
Jamie: I knew it! I knew it!
Chance: Jamie, you don't know how much I missed you and all the things that happened.
Jamie, you smell like a million bones! You're my favourite boy in the whole world!
I love you, Jamie!
Laura: Where have you been?
Bob: Where have you been? Huh?
Laura: Oh, Chance.
Bob: Where have you been?
You scoundrel you! Look at this guy.
Laura: You made it!
Sassy: Hope! Hope! Hope! Hope! Hope!
Hope:Oh, my baby.
Sassy: I thought I'd never see you again.
Hope: Oh, Sassy.
Peter: Sassy's back!
Jamie: What do we have here?
Bob: Look at this!
Hope: Oh, Sassy, I'm never gonna let you go! Never, never, never.
Sassy: Oh, sweetheart. Sassy can't breathe.
Bob: Family's all comin' back together, huh?
Peter: (Sighing) Come on, Shadow.
He was old.
It was too far. He was just too old.
Laura: Oh, Peter, honey.
Shadow: Oh, Peter. I worried about you so.
Shadow: Peter, you're okay!
Shadow: He's here! Oh, I'm so happy!
I thought about you all the time.
Peter: Missed you!
Shadow: I missed you, Peter, and I love you.
Chance: (narrating) It was Shadow's victory, really.
His belief was the thing that got us through.
And in that moment, I saw the years lift from him.
He was a puppy again, reunited with his best friend.
Bob: (Laughing) Shadow! It's good to see you, boy.
Chance: (narrating) As we turned to go inside the house, a strange new feeling came over me.
I had a family, and I had found out that sacrifice... and friendship and even love... were more than just the mushy stuff.
Jamie: Come on, Chance. Come inside.
Chance: (narrating) At last, for the first time in my life, I was home.
Chance: Turkey! Turkey, turkey, turkey, turkey...

To Get This Quest [ ]
Highperch is located in north-eastern Thousand Needles , along the southern cliffs. The ramp to get up to Highperch is almost directly west of Whitereach Post , which can be found along the main road. The coordinates for the bottom of the ramp are (15,33). The NPC you are looking for is in the south-eastern end of Highperch , up a path barely visible, coordinates (18,41).
Objectives [ ]
Escort Pao'ka Swiftmountain from Highperch , and then talk to Motega Firemane in Whitereach Post .
Description [ ]
Please help me, <class>! I've been hiding here in Highperch for some time now and it's been days since I've seen a friendly face. I came here to study the wyvern and I think I got a little too close. After being chased away from one of the nests I got lost.
I need to get back to Whitereach Post ! Motega does not know that I am missing and will be furious to know that I ventured into Highperch by myself.
Whitereach Post is just east of here... please take me there!
Rewards [ ]
Completion [ ].
What!? If I knew that Pao'ka Swiftmountain was going to snoop around Highperch , I would have chained him to a totem! His father was reluctant allowing him to come with me to Thousand Needles . We came here to study the different creatures that inhabit these beautiful lands.
I appreciate the help you have shown Pao'ka . I hope this covers any misfortunes this deed has cost you.
Let Pao'ka walk ahead of you, grab aggro, then come in to help him once he starts fighting. If you run ahead instead, he may walk right past the fight and into more enemies. Once you have escorted him out of Highperch , head east to Whitereach Post and talk to Motega Firemane to turn in the quest.
