Oh he’s beautiful! He’s a super dog. SUPPERRR DOG!! Super Man. He’s looking and thinking “hurry up and take this off-me. I’m so embarrassed.” He’s thinking he might get stuck in a bath. He’s grinning and bearing it. He’s saying “Why me? What are you doing to me?”
His name is Ruffy. He looks like he’s all paws, just a tiny dog. He’s a yappy dog! He’s owned by a family, some kids. The owner may be away or taking a photo of him. That’s it. The owner is saying,“stand still”. We hear woof woof and children laughing. Poor Ruffy might have fleas. He’s thinking “when do I get my supper.” He wants a reward. He’s a silky terrier or a Heinz variety with those gorgeous floppy ears. That’s not a towel, it’s his robe. He disrobes himself. Someone drops his favorite lollies in front of him. He says “enough is enough.” He grabs the robe and runs off with it. He thinks it’s a game. He’s a cuddly dog. They pick him up for a cuddle. He wants attention. Maybe he wants the children to play tag and the poor dog will get into trouble.
He gets up, looks at anybody and then wanders off and says “you silly buggers” into the still of the night, the backyard to do his business. Then he flops down.
