There’s a new puppy at Oriah’s house. There used to be two, but the other one died. The puppy who lived used to have a different name, but when his brother died, his name was changed to Chocnut. (Chocnut is a popular, locally made milk chocolate that sells for around one peso per piece.)

Chocnut lives in a bayong, and goes out only when he is called, and he expects to be fed when he is disturbed. Because he is an askal, I believe Chocnut does not need formal dog obedience training like other puppies.
