"What do think Mom, will that darned puppy fit in the box?"
"It's not very big after all, even if it is hogging up ALL the attention!"
"We could just stuff him in the box and leave it out by the mailbox and the guy who stops there every day will just cart him away. We'll have Ma all to ourselves again."
"It's a good idea kid, but you know we'll never get away with it. Ma watches that thing like a hawk. I guess we better just resign ourselves to only getting most of the attention instead of all of it."
"Sheesh, that's just SO unfair! There's gotta be a way to make this work, I know that thing will fit in here....."
