What he didnt know about wizardry was hardly worth knowing, for he possessed all the books and recipes of all the wizards who had lived before him- and, moreover, he had invented several wizardments himself.

This admirable person would have been completely happy but for the numerous interruptions to his studies caused by folk who came to consult him about their troubles (in which he was not interested), and by the loud knocks of the iceman, the milkman, the bakers boy, the laundryman and the peanut woman. He never dealt with any of these people- but they rapped at his door every day to see him about this or that or to try to sell him their wares. Just when he was most deeply interested in his books or engaged in watching the bubbling of a cauldron there would come a knock at his door.

And after sending the intruder away he always found he had lost his train of thought or ruined his compound. At length these interruptions aroused his anger, and he decided he must have a dog to keep people away from his door. He didnt know where to find a dog, but in the next room lived a poor glass-blower with whom he had a slight acquaintance- so he went into the mans apartment and asked: Where can I find a dog? What sort of a dog? inquired the glass-blower.

A good dog. One that will bark at people and drive them away. One that will be no trouble to keep and wont expect to be fed. One that has no fleas and is neat in his habits. One that will obey me when I speak to him. In short, a good dog, said the wizard.
