That’s a remarkably well-trained hound you have there, Bock.
It was Jim, my neighbour.
Bock, if you don’t mind my asking, what training method did you use? I’ve never seen such obedience.
Not at all, Jim, I replied. I use the carrot-and-stick method. When he behaves himself, I throw a stick for him, and when he doesn’t, I shove a carrot up his arse.
