Whose Surprise Is It?

“No peeking,” Reggie’s dad said. Reggie shielded his eyes. His father’s hands rested on his shoulders and slowly guided the boy to the family’s living room.

“Happy birthday!” his dad said. “You can look now.”

“Oh boy!” Reggie yelled as he ran across the room and hugged the neck of a huge hound dog. The dog and the boy stood nose to nose and then the dog licked the birthday boy in the face.

Reggie turned to his dad and asked, “Is he for me, or am I for him?”
