First Sentence


Beatrix said her first sentence “she’s a dog”. Walter also spent a long time chattering at Sally here, things like “I like your winter coat, do you have a hood?” And “you’re a female, do you have a vulva?”, the dog just stood there in stoic canine silence, so after a prolonged period of this he started saying to the dog “hey look at me, look at me!!” and sticking his face in hers, Like we do to him when he’s not responding to our questions...


for the record, this is Sally, his friend Charlie’s dog, so we knew she was friendly.
