Show 14: Ruff Follows His Dream

After Ruff had a dream where he was flying with elephants, he decided to see if he could make his dream come true! All he needed was to fly and get an elephant…

Ruff sent Marco to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee to learn what he'd need to make elephants happy. Elephants need lots of room, other elephant friends, and 50 pounds of hay and 30-50 gallons of water every day. It's pretty much a constant job to keep them happy! But Ruff only works an hour a day and his home is far too small for an elephant. Marco decided that it was a horrible idea for Ruff to get an elephant.

Rubye and Marc helped out by learning how to indoor skydive! They took a quick training course to learn how to move their bodies in the air, and then they were ready to fly! They competed against each other for height and Marc soared above the competition, while Rubye won for speed and control!

Shreya, Emmie, and Jay stayed back at Studio G where they scored 45 points in the Halftime Quiz Show!

Then all the FETCHers met back at Studio G for the Triumph Tally:

Marco scored:

  • 85 points for getting the skinny on the not-so-skinny elephants

And for the two gravity defyers:

Marc scored:

  • 50 points: for reaching new heights in the first fly-off

Rubye scored:

  • 50 points for triumphing in the speed round

Marc and Rubye also earned:

  • An additional 35 points for their grace in the air. That's a total of 85 points!

BUT: "Is that all the points a dog can give?"

The 5 bonus points went to Rubye for providing a great explanation of air resistance during a sky dive. That gave Rubye 90 points! Her prize: an action-packed pachyderm game!
