Snappy the alligator was outside his shed. He was showing his doctor’s stethoscope to Tonk, the rabbit. The earpieces were in Snappy’s ears as he held out the other end to Tonk.
“Beep!” Tonk spoke into the end of the stethoscope.
“OUCH!” Snappy jerked his head back. “That’s too loud. You mustn't do that when I am wearing this!”
