|“|| Floyd: Maybe Missy will come back on her own. Dogs are very loyal, you know. |
Regina: No, Floyd. Dogs are stupid. And do you have to stand like that? How are we supposed to have relationship if you can't even stand right? I'd kill that stupid dog.

They were portrayed by Debi Mazar and the late Chris Penn.
Regina was a vindictive, bad-tempered woman who sought out a large sum of money ($50,000) from her ex-husband Brillo and took custody of Missy, a female St Bernard - though she had little care for her and planned on giving her back to her husband once the settlement was complete.
However due to a fateful meeting between a lovestruck Beethoven and Missy a litter of puppies entered the mix - Regina was angered by the puppies and claimed them all despite the fact she simply wished to dispose of them (even if it meant killing them).
However the three Newton children (who owned Beethoven) took it upon themselves to rescue the puppies and kept them safe at their home (hiding them from George) - Regina was angered at the puppies disappearance and sought revenge.
Later in the film Regina (now accompanied by her new boyfriend Floyd) attends the same fair at the mountains as the Newtons happen to be at and manages to steal back the puppies, however Missy, alongside Beethoven, manages to escape into the wilderness not far from the fair and Regina and Floyd pursue - followed by the Newtons.
When the Newtons catch up with the pair Floyd threatens to toss the puppies off a cliff and George tells him that things don't need to get ugly - at which point Floyd threatens George with physical violence by poking him on the chest with a stick, prompting Beethoven to ram it into Floyd's crotch in retaliation: causing him to lose balance as he falls off the cliff, Regina grabs his hand and ends up falling alongside him.
Amazingly the pair survived the fall, landing in a pool of mud - which proceeded to break off, tossing the two into a river and they are swept away into the distance as they argue over their plan (as a result to this, Regina changes her mind and yells at the Newtons, "Take your stinkin' puppies and stuff it!")
Later it is revealed that Missy has been returned to her owner and Regina has lost her claim - gaining none of the money she had sought. What happened to Floyd is unknown, but he presumably put his foot down and broke up with Regina as it shows she treated him almost the same way she does with Missy.
A visit to the Newton family who said that by Brillo who overheard what happened at the mountains Regina and Floyd were arrested by the police for their crimes they comitted; assault, animal cruelty, snatching puppies from kids, child abuse and calling Beethoven a "stupid dog".
