Puppy: Tell me a story
Me: I just told you a story
Me: What kind of a story?
Puppy: My name, tell me about my name
Puppy: I had the wrong name
Me: Well, we thought it was the wrong name
Puppy: So you gave me the right name
Me: Not right away. We knew we had to find the right name, but we weren’t sure what it was.
Puppy: What did you call me?
Me: Sometimes we called you Puppy, sometimes I called you Baby.
Puppy: Because I’m your baby
Me: You will always be my baby
Me: Then we started thinking about names. We came up with lots of names, but we just couldn’t agree. We made lists and we talked about it and thought about it and just couldn’t come up with the right name.
Puppy: Then what happened?
Me: After about three weeks, we finally decided that no one could leave the dinner table until we’d figured out your name
Puppy: And you named me Booker
Me: and we named you Booker
Puppy: And we lived Happily Ever After
Puppy: I love you
Me: I love you too, Puppy
Puppy: Now scratch my tummy
