Rufus placed his paw over the bone he’d been working on for the last hour and let out a low growl. He didn’t care of the puppy was new, it couldn’t keep taking his bones. It set a bad precedent.
The puppy his humans adopted looked at him with wide eyes and wagging tail.
Rufus tried to ignore the look and went back to chewing, but the puppy whimpered.
Rufus thought about growling again, but decided against doing so. Sighing, he lifted his paw and let the puppy take his bone again. Some things were just too sweet to refuse.
