He pawed so hard at Fatty’s legs that Fatty had to lift him up, and carry him! �Whose dog is that?’ demanded the man called Bill. �I never saw such a badly behaved one in my life. Knocked my wife over, and made her coat all dusty! Ah - there’s a policeman - come over here, my good man. I want to report this dog. It’s been out of control, attacked my

supply of generous aunts and uncles and grandparents. �Sit, Buster. Well-mannered dogs do NOT put their paws on the table, and count the number of scones.’ �They’d take some counting!’ said Ern, eyeing the plate with much approval.
