Albert learns (again) that some dogs just don’t like him

“Ah no, he’ll not bite you,” the dog’s owner said.  “He’s such an old softie.  He’s more likely to lick you to death.”

Albert remained unconvinced.  He looked at the dog.  And the dog looked at Albert.

“Go on!” the owner said.  “Give him a pat!  He’s ever so friendly.”

But when Albert tentatively reached out his hand the dog immediately bit him, drawing blood.

“I am so sorry,” the dog’s owner said, ordering his dog away.  “He’s never done that before.  Never!”

“Well,” Albert said sadly, examining the small cut on this hand, “he’s never met me before either.”

    1. Just read it – fantastic. Funnily enough, my grandfather was a massive fan of Thurber but I’ve never got into him so now I’ve just ordered a selection, having enjoyed the dog that bit people very much on a free website. To say I’m grateful for this reminder of him from you would be an understatement – many thanks!
