“I’ll take two of them,” says Roberta!
“Woof, woof, woof,” adds Bill.
Peggy says: “It looks like mine. I had one!”
It is a boy dog or a girl dog? “Half and half,” says Maria again.
It’s a very nice dog—one, that’s enough! It’s a lovely dog. Her name is Picobella. Peggy wants to name it “Peggy”, so we’ll call the dog Peggy Picobella!
It’s not a very big dog. You’d have to say: “Come on, Pup!” The dog is wrapped in a towel because she is very cold—poor thing.
The dog has to belong to someone. The owner is at school and Peggy Picobella is waiting for them.
The dog is feeling good. What a pup! The dog would probably appreciate the people who own it. They would be attracted to dogs and the pup would keep them happy.
Don’t forget—or worry—that dogs run everywhere, including going into bins. Peggy Picobella might like the thought of getting into mischief, observes Isobel. But it depends on how big the things are around the pup and how big the pup is.
This thing is full of life—ready to jump over somewhere, to win or something.
“It’s a puppy and a towel,” George reminds us. “It’s cute, isn’t it?” says Roberta. Peggy Picobella is the best mate and has special manners. She is loved by the people.
Whistle the dog and it will run to you. If you whistle the dog, it will get familiar with it. You say “Come on, Pup, come on,” and it responds. “Dogs run to the shepherd,” notes Maria.
It’s going to go all right. Wait and see what happens. Don’t forget, Bill reminds us, that a lot of people kick dogs. “It doesn’t sound nice,” says Roberta. We all agree.
The owner will come home and take Peggy Picobella for a walk around the park. The dog lives in Karahoja on a sultana farm. It’s a very big farm. Maria says she is an Amazon, and the pup is an Amazon too!
Peggy would like to take the pup home!
