Now as Angus grew older and longer he learned MANY THINGS. He learned it is best to stay in one’s own yard and FROGS can jump but NOT to jump after them and BALLOONS go POP! Angus also learned NOT to lie on the sofa and NOT to take SOMEONE ELSE’S food and things like that. But there was SOMETHING outdoors Angus was very curious about but had NEVER learned about, and that was CATS. The leash was too SHORT.
I was just very suddenly reminded of Marjorie Flack’s Angus books, which I loved as a child and then never thought about at all until just now.
