is a short humorous atypical story about a man and his kids dog . Getting off on the wrong foot, he hates this dog who he never calls by the same name twice Hansen Writes “ We got off on the wrong foot. Whining in his pen those first nights. My squirt gun in his face and him blinking from the water. The so-called accidents in the house” (Bedford 244) Right from the start there is a clear understanding of the relationship between the two.
