When his father bought him a dog he forgot all about his fear of walking, he would follow the dog from one room to the next, falling over or crawling, and in some cases walking upright. It was almost a miracle. He gained confidence in himself and stopped being spoiled, in the sense that he would want all his parents attention at all times.
