The Dating Life of a Dog

ME: You coming in or what?


ME: Why are you shushing me?

WATSON: Because I don’t want Bella to hear us talking. I don’t want to scare her away from coming back.

ME: Is Bella the new dog in the next yard?

WATSON: Yep! She said she was coming back.


WATSON: How do I make her want to come back?

ME: You can’t make her.

WATSON: What do I do?

ME: Well, you just have to try not to think about her. As soon as you stop thinking about her, that’s when she’ll appear.

WATSON: That’s crazy talk.

ME: Yeah, I don’t make the rules.


WATSON: Dating sucks.

ME: Sorry, mate.
