See how he minds so nicely? Well, if you could’ve seen him when I first got him, you would have been abhorred. He never came when I asked, and he was a terribly messy eater (all over his face, you know the kind). You would’ve thought that I had just picked him up off the street, but he came from a really great bloodline – an Ivy League kennel, if you can believe it. He thought he could just go wherever he wanted, and sleep in my bed, and basically just run around with complete disregard for my inherent authority. I know what they say about corporal punishment, but I really believe that he enjoyed his little dalliance with the Sunday Times. He’s just been such a good boy since then. I mean, it’s totally all about the handler, but look how handsome he looks in his new collar.
