Oh but they said, you’ll have to teach the dog so many new tricks.
You’ll have to teach the puppy to sit, to sleep, to be quiet, to be tame, to walk on the lead. You’ll have to teach the puppy all there is to know about life.
But oh said the puppy, you’ve no idea what I’m to teach you. I’m to teach you about playing with me instead of your phone, about walking, wandering and exploring. About the simple things in life. And how simple life can be.
Basil laughed, oh said he; I’m to teach you about how incredibly spoiled one puppy dog can be!
