Think about it

1. What kind of a person do you think the narrator, a veterinary surgeon is? Would you say he is tactful as well as full of common sense? 

Ans: in fact, the veterinary surgeon is a very practical man with a lot of common senses. He is also tactful. He clearly finds out the cause behind tricki’s illness and succeeds in recovering it. 

2. Do you think tricki was happy to go home? What do you think will happen now? 

Ans: yes, tricki was happy to go home. But Mrs. Pampherey will possibly give him lost of food and make him ill again. 

3. Do you think this is a real-life episode, or mere fiction? Or is it a mixture of both? 

Ans: I think this is a real-life episode. It is not mere fiction. But it contains the quality of fiction. 

Talk about it

1. This episode describes the silly behaviour of a rich woman who is foolishly indulgent, perhaps because she  is lonely. Do you think such people are merely silly, or can their actions cause harm to others? 

Ans: persons like Mrs. Pampherey are silly because they have no common sense. They don’t know that too much of anything is bad. They can cause harm to others. 

2. Do you think there are also parents like Mrs. Pampherey? 

Ans: yes, definitely there are parents like Mrs. Pampherey in our society who later repent. 

3. What would you have done if you were: (1) a member of the staff in Mrs. Pampherey ‘s household, (2)a neighbour? What would your life have been like, in general? 

Ans: if I had been a member of Mrs. Pamphrey’s s staff I would politely advise her to cut tricki’s food down and arrange for the dog’s exercise. But had I been a neighbor of her I would strongly advise her not to give the dog excessive nutritious food? 

My life would have been o. K as I act using any common sense. 

4. What would you have done if you were in the narrator’s place? 

Ans: if I had been in the narrator’s place I would have done exactly the same thing as he did. He did not exploit Mrs. Pampherey. He just playfully ate part of tricki’s food that would cause the dog harm.
