Minerva has a special way with dogs. She charms them, and soon the adoring creatures are willing to do anything she pleases with them. Several of the local dogs have acquired odd tricks such as "stacking" and "posing", which is a great source of amusement for the dogs' owners.
Dolly, Minerva, and Delphine are visiting Held Manor for the day, and Mr. Arrow is acting as chaperone. Several of Minerva's dog pupils have followed her, so the girls have decided that an impromptu show would be quite entertaining. The posing spaniels made a comic impression, except that Flash kept trying to play fetch with his flute. The dog stack was a hit with little Digger, dressed up in a sailor suit removed from a doll, topping the pyramid. For Willard, this is just one more confirmation that Minerva Ackermann is the most amazing girl in the world.
