Let's start with the dog first. His name is Buffy and he is the hero of our story.
Start at the top of his head and feel his smooth, tall, black top hat. Move down over its brim until you come to his two beady black eyes. Continue down over his nose to his little smiling mouth. Now feel all over his face to find his two fluffy ears sticking out to the sides. These would normally hang down by the side of his face, so he must be jumping up or doing a dance for them to be bouncing like this. Just past Buffy's ear on the left can you find a strong, long thin line going diagonally down to the right? This is his black cane which has white ends.
