going to tell you about an extraordinary thing that happened the other day. The day before yesterday, about 8 o'clock at night, a young woman approached the box office of the best movie theater in the city. She had with her an enormous dog with a beautifully groomed coat. She bought two tickets and went toward the door followed by her dog. The manager of the theater spoke to her, saying,

sorry Miss, but dogs allowed in the theater.

But, I have a ticket for him.

very sorry, but animals permitted.

You understand. This is a special case. My dog is so well trained, and so intelligent that almost human.

I see that you have an exceptional animal. But...

I promise you that if there is any problem, leave the theater immediately. I assure you that this dog like any other dog ever seen.

"Well alright. let you go in since the theater is almost empty tonight. Nevertheless, your dog will have to behave himself, or have to leave."

Several hours go by and now the people are leaving the theater. The manager sees the girl with her dog.

I congratulate you. You were right. Your dog behaved very well. been watching him and amazing how quiet he was.

I told you that well trained and very intelligent.

He certainly is. It even seemed as if he was enjoying the moving.

Oh! He did enjoy it! He liked the film very much; however, he liked the book much better.
