The first person he met was an old man watering his garden. He looks like a nice man, thought the dog. He went up to him, wagging his tail, which is a dog's way of politely saying hello.

Much to his surprise, the man yelled at him, "Get out of here before you destroy my garden." And he squirted water at the dog. Wow, what a grump. He wouldn't make a good family. And he took off, quickly.

He ran to the park where he found a young man and woman having a picnic. They looked like nice people. Maybe they would make a good family.
