He’s rude because he has a finger in his mouth. Oh beautiful! He has a dog. The boy’s name is David. He’s only tasting what he got out of the container. David is a bit lonely but Maria’s daughter is going to America to keep him company.
The dog wants to taste what the boy has. There are biscuits in the container. David is not sure if he likes them. The dog is looking at him and is company for David. The boy is playing with a toy there.
The dog is named Nong Nong Lufta Picobella! The dog is looking at the boy and laughing. We don’t know how David is feeling because he hasn’t told Margaret yet. Most parents wouldn’t be happy about David eating all those biscuits. He might get a tummy ache. When his parents come home they will take the biscuits away. He’s cheating; he’s eating!
David is in the hallway in his house, in Chatswood. He is wearing overalls. It’s taking place in the present. He’s on his own—no brothers and sisters—poor thing! He thinks he hasn’t got any tucker, so he’s sucking honey on his thumb. He’s forgotten about his drink. It’s next to him.
When his parents come home they’ll take him outside and give him something extra to do, like running around. They have a big yard because they have a dog. It’s taking place on Sunday morning. The dog goes outside too. The dog is happy because he has an unusual name!
In the picture the dog is happy but the boy doesn’t look happy. Maybe he is angry at the dog. David’s mother has curled David’s hair.
Afterwards, David has his dinner but he is still angry with the dog, and the poor puppy has nothing.
