30 Seconds for Wind Quintet, No. 1: "Puppies & Kittens Commercial"

I gave myself the limitation of writing an upbeat piece in a classical style, limited to 30 seconds—as if it had to fit exactly into a 30-second radio or television commercial. This piece was composed around the idea of a commercial for something pet-related, with animals romping and playing behind the music. Note to wind arrangers: HELP! How would you suggest I arrange the last measures to emphasize the motor rhythm, but still make sure a beloved bassoonist doesn't turn blue? I've grayed out notes that I feel could be left out without adversely affecting the overall sound, but I'd love other suggestions!
