You are not a puppy anymore!
Well no, we do grow up you know. Is that why I only get 2 meals a day now?
Yes, vet Clare said you could grow too fast if I fed you too much.
So don’t complain when I go scrounging then.
You have ALWAYS scrounged!
Does that mean you don’t love me?
No, I just don’t love you very much when you scrounge.
Now that I am grown-up will you stop calling me “Little Zak”?
Probably not. I was still a “horrible child” at 32. I see no reason why you cannot always be Little Zak!
