Greg is on his way to work. He runs into his friend Sally who is taking her dog for a walk.
---S: Hey, Greg, how's it going?
---G: Oh, Sally, hi. I'm just on my way to work. My car's in the shop today, so I'm taking the subway(n.地铁) What about you? Where are you off to?
---S: I'm just taking Cinderella for a walk. She's been cooped up（v.被关着） in my apartment for too long. She needs some exercise. Isn't that right, Cinderella? Yeeesss. You're a lazy puppy（n.小狗）.
---G: I see, and what is that she's wearing?
---S: Well, it's cold so I bought her a little sweater. Chihuahuas have kind of a thin coat, so they get cold easily. And all the salt on the road is bad for their paws, so I make sure she wears her booties. Doesn't she look cute（adj.可爱的）?
---G: She certainly looks interesting.
---S: Yeah. All this stuff is top of the line（adj.最好的）. You know her outfit cost $500.
---G: That's more than my suit cost.
---S: I know. But nothing's too good for my baby. Right, Cindy? Who's the trendiest（adj.最时尚的） puppy around? I think it's you.
---G: Uh, listen, I've got to get going, but you and Cinderella enjoy your walk.
---S: Okay, I'll call you later this week. We should get together for dinner or something.
---G: Sounds good. See ya.
---S: Say goodbye, Cinderella. Bye-bye…Alright. I'll talk to you later.
