Once upon a time there was a boy dog. And once upon a time there was a girl dog.

He has been guarding his garden all days, and she has been running behind his fence until her owner whistles at her.

And as it happens, in lives not only of dogs, the two has become fancy of each other, despite high planks of the fence that kept them apart. But she didn't want to go into an unknown garden and he couldn't leave his backyard.

How to make her come in? What if ... Yes! This will definitely work! He will show her his beloved toy: a tiny circuit of an old garden railing peeping through the clumps of growing grass. And not only that! In his kennel, looking like a small railway yard, a smoke is rising from the chimney of an old steam locomotive. The girl dog jumps over the fence and drives around the garden with the boy dog. Now she is his. And he is hers. But ... but what’s that? Why does her owner whistle at her again? Are we somewhere at the railway station? Well, actually, we are ... But why is he putting her into a car? And where is he going with her? Oh no! Not now! This can't be happening now!

The studio production was prepared by the team of the director Michaela Homolová (author Vít Peřina, artist Robert Smolík and musician Filip Homola), which also created a successful performance for the youngest children About the Lamb that Fell from the Sky. And the “dogs on the track” can be certainly measured with the "lamb". This time, the production is for children of the age of 2 years, it is almost without words and for a little number of audience sitting almost at the stage. On a specially adapted stage, a large railway is gradually being built and a story of a dog who decides to overcome a fear of the unknown to find his girl dog friend and is heading towards a great train adventure is being unfolded. On his journey to find his love, he gets a lot of new dog friends who help him in his quest ...
