Meet Sprocket

Recently, Amadeus has been acting suspiciously. I knew he was up to something, but I had no idea what it could be. One afternoon, not long after the suspicious activity began, a package appeared on the front step. Amadeus opened it and quickly got to work, studying the instructions thoroughly before assembling the mystery.

After less than an hour, there were two pairs of legs joined together and what appeared to be a music box. At this point I was banned from the assembly room for being too human and making annoying breathing sounds.

Later that afternoon, while walking around outside, I saw Amadeus and what appeared to be a small wooden dog. At first glance, I thought Amadeus was teaching the dog to sit.

A moment later, however, Amadeus threw the stick and the little wooden dog ran after it.

I'm unsure how exactly he managed it, but the dog picked up the stick and returned it to Amadeus.

They continued to play fetch for a while. And I eventually learned that the dog's name is Sprocket. For the past few days, the two have been spending time together and doing whatever it is that little wooden robots do whenever humans aren't around.
