“One was a Styrofoam float. Romeo would pick it up and bring it to [my friend] Harry to throw.” It’s like he thought he was one of the dogs.
Nick would tell anyone who was willing to listen to him talk about Romeo the wolf. He knew that having toys was an important aspect of being a dog, because dogs enjoy playing around more than humans do.
