Jealous Gody
Gody resisted all his life to be brushed on a table; maybe it's because he's ticklish. He developed a good ability to keep away from the brush. Until another dog came into the house; he was small, his name was Bini and he liked to be brushed. Gody wasn't watching very long before he jumped up on the table and laid on top of Bini, while looking at his owner "I left Bini on the floor and started to work on Gody who let himself be brushed with infinite patience, while on the floor Bini jumped up and down furiously".
