I think I mentioned before that my cousin Simone has a dog, a big black lab named Maxton. I love city dogs in particular because they're so used to being around different people and other dogs that they're really well-behaved, but every now and then, Maxton gets a little too enthusiastic and someone needs to put him in his place. So there's my aunt, "Maxton, seduto!" And he won't listen… "Seduto! Maxton, rimouvuto tui zampi dalla tavola cena e ti prendi all'angolo! Andate!" I find this all very amusing because, silly, dogs can't speak Italian!

Here, let me try: "Maxton! Get down off the dinner table and sit in the corner! Go!"
