Asked what three items he still had to have in his suitcase, Zee said: “The boots, the puffer jacket, and a pair of solid jeans.”
He felt persuaded that Professor puffer could tell him what he was very anxious to know.
This was a question which puffer found it difficult to answer.
puffer would always come down to us, however tired, and let us stroke him and kiss his glossy head and neck.
Professor puffer muttered something, but did not dare to press the demand.
A little reflection, however, allayed the fears of Professor puffer.
"I believe you are deceiving me," said Professor puffer angrily.
Then Bernard gave an account of Professor puffer's attempt to throw him over the rail during the voyage.
"I won't let him keep the place," said puffer, shutting his lips firmly.
One day, no puffer returned to us; and in despair we gave away all our remaining pigeons.
