Just admit it. You like the dog.
I haven’t the faintest idea why you think I’d enjoy the company of this dirty, flea-ridden, cacophony of fur.
Can you pause between “it’s not a person” and “it’s a dog?” As in similar to the original take, which I included below:
You should make more of an effort to train him.
There’s the crux of the matter, you referring to “it” as “him.” It isn’t capable of being trained. It’s not a person. It’s a dog.
Man’s best friend? More like Mer’s worst nightmare.
All right then.
