Why do my flash buttons require TWO clicks?

I don't get it. When I click the button the first time, nothing happens. When I click it a second time, it works like it's supposed to.

I think I have everything set up correctly. The button resides in the first frame (which has a stop action). The action for the button is as follows:

on (release) {
      petBtn.onRelease = function() {
            gotoAndPlay(2);
      };
}

So all I'm asking it to do is advance one frame (frame 2 also has a stop action).

IT WORKS FINE on the second click! Why won't it work on the FIRST click?

Thanks in advance!!

Sorry all, I figured it out. I didn't need that

on (release) {

in my actionscript.

The correct actionscript should read:

petBtn.onRelease = function() {
      gotoAndPlay(2);
};
