So it's true, no one knew the puppy's name. I thought so.
His name is Theo, but I figured people didn't know.
I rarely call him by name. Why were you curious in the first place?
(You explain that Gwynn asked you. Tieve looks thoughtful.)
Gwynn? Now that I think about it...
I believe Ellis stopped by once, asking what Theo's
name was, but he left before I could answer.
You know, Theo came to me right around when Priest Herion
passed away, and I had to care for the temple all by myself.
I heard him crying for his mother. At first, I thought it was a child!
I rushed out there and found Theo in the bushes.
Even though I can speak with animals, I can usually tell humans
and animals apart! This was the first time I was ever so wrong.
Anyway, Theo was just a tiny puppy, so I bottle-fed him milk
and played with him. Now look at how much he's grown!
He always follows me when I go to the temple. I think that's his
way of showing me that he wants to protect me.
Oh! Look at
