|PSSSST! I've got a secret...|
Triumph: The humans keep saying I have an “important” job to do. Merit, do you know what “important” means?
Merit: Yes, I do. What do you think it means?
Triumph: Um, I think it means when you have to get out of the house right away and go potty.
Merit: You’re right, that is an important job.
Triumph: Merit, you should come to school with me forever.
Merit: I can’t go to school with you, Triumph. I’m too big now. I have to go to work.
Triumph: Just don’t eat your dinner and then you will shrink and then you can go to school again.
Merit: Triumph, why is there a mouse in my dog dish?
Triumph: I don’t know, maybe he’s hungry.
Merit: Did you catch him and put him in my dish?
Triumph: Not sure…
Merit: What do you mean not sure?
Triumph: He doesn’t have a head. I only catch the ones with heads.
Merit: Are there any ones with heads in the house?
Triumph: Not recently… Although, I did see a head without a body in your crate…
Merit: What did you learn at training class tonight?
Triumph: The flowers are all gone, the animals have all disappeared and snow is falling; it’s now wintertime.
Merit: Wow, that has nothing to do with dog training.
Triumph: I don’t make the curriculum, Merit. I just listen and follow along.
Triumph: Some of my friends are yellow and some are black.
Merit: Yes, you’re right.
Triumph: And some are brown. The brown ones are the best! But I like the yellow ones too, even if they're a little red. I like everyone really.
Triumph: I’m black, but I shouldn't feel bad about it, one day I’ll be brown, just like you.
Triumph: But first I need to jump in the mud, and then find some rabbit poop to roll in…
Merit: What happened to all the toys I had?
Triumph: Which ones?
Merit: All of them. There’s only one left in the box.
Triumph: If there’s only one left then you’re not missing all of them.
Merit: Don’t be smart with me Try!
Triumph: OK I’ll be smart with myself then, but I think you could use my help. This is basic math.
Merit: You’re a real funny girl.
Triumph: I’m smart and funny? Wow, I must take after you.
Merit: How sweet. Now go find my toys.Triumph: All of them???
