    Hi Sonya,


    I'd do it like this.



    function getThisDog(https) {
      var aqHttpRequest = aqHttp.CreateGetRequest(https);
      aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Accept", "application/vnd.api+json; version=1");
      aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8");
      aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Accept-Language", "pl");
      aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Accept-Charset", "utf-8, iso-8859-13;q=0.8");
      aqHttpRequest.SetHeader("Content-Language", "pl");
      var aqHttpRes = aqHttpRequest.Send();  
      return aqHttpRes;
    function parseThisDog() {
      let jsonResponse = getThisDog("");
      if(jsonResponse.StatusCode === 200) {
        let doggyJson = JSON.parse(jsonResponse.Text);
        let dogImage = getThisDog(doggyJson.message);
        let randomString = Math.random().toString(36).substring(2, 15) + Math.random().toString(36).substring(2, 15);
        dogImage.SaveToFile("C:\\TEST-TRASH\\" + randomString + "dog.jpg");
      } else {
        Log.Error("Something went wrong while trying to connect")
