Now, the once powerful have fallen into poverty and live in shabby apartment complexes. Such a person is lord. The lord had just reached out his hand to pity a dog with a strange shape and short legs, but was confused by the mischief of his new servant. ‘What is this? Can a dog do such things?” The fierce-looking lord and the happy dog live together in peace and harmony!
