Joseph Turner was a great English painter. He had a dog which he loved very much. One day he was playing with his dog. The dog fell and broke his leg. Turner sent for a doctor. But he did not want to send for a vet. He sent for the best doctor in London.
When the doctor came Turner said, «Doctor, I’m glad you have come. My dog has broken a leg. I know that you are too great for this work, but please, do it. It’s so important to me.»
The doctor was angry but he did not show it.
Next day the doctor asked Turner to come to his house. «The doctor wants to see me about my dog,» Turner thought.
When Turner got to the doctor’s house the doctor said, «Mr Turner, I’m glad to see you. I want to ask you to paint my door. I know that you are too great for this work, but please, do it. It’s so important to me.»
