789 – Taking Care of Pets

Magda: Oooh, he’s so cute. When did you get him?

Tony: Yesterday. I’m training him to do tricks.

Magda: Really? Are you having any luck?

Tony: No, not yet. So far, he just lies there, but maybe he’s hungry and doesn’t have any energy to play. I’m going to feed him a few treats and give him some water in his bowl.

Magda: Uh, okay.

Tony: And then later, I’m going to take him for a walk. Here are the new collar and leash I bought for him. I’ll be sure to bring his carrier in case he gets too tired to walk.

Magda: Whatever you say. Are you sure you need to do all that?

Tony: Oh, sure. It’s important to keep pets healthy and happy, don’t you think? I’m going to groom him later. I wouldn’t want him to get fleas or ticks. Maybe I should take him to see the vet for a checkup.

Magda: I really don’t think that’ll be necessary. Tony, you do know that that’s a pet rock, right?

Tony: Yeah, what’s your point?
