He pays Veijo to do the job. The only problem is that Veijo doesn’t kill healthy dogs. Petri brags to everybody how he has killed the dog by himself. But a lie never lives to be old – the dog is happy and very much alive. Petri gets furious. He has paid for the killing and he won’t be happy until the dog is dead. He has to get his honor back.
