5. Pets

"Can you keep those pets of yours out of the stables?" Faramir asked his brother. "They upset the horses, and hunt the cats."

"What of it? Warhorses should be better-trained, and my dogs are hunting dogs, not pets. That's what they do."

"So will your… pets… keep vermin out of the stables?" Faramir asked pointedly.

"Don't be ridiculous! They are for hunting boars and deer, not mice… and I said they're not pets."

"I heard you," Faramir said. "Then stop treating them as if they are, and try not to have them chase Father's favourite mouser up a tree either."
