Joey is tearing up shoes outside the café. It’s fall, in the middle of the afternoon. Joey is listening to his master, Mary, when he hears another dog behind him. Someone says, “Don’t do that!” Mary tries to get control over her dog, and hears someone say, “I hope he doesn’t wear shoes!” Joey looks around to see if anyone is in his way; he doesn’t want the other dog or anyone to get in his way.
It seems that Joey has been “collecting” shoes from the café. He removes them from the café and brings them home to his bedroom. Joey is trying to sell the shoes.
