|When Patrick was not at work, he spent as much time as he could
with Mr. Robin talking about fatherhood and helping to guard the feathery
nursery in the Gumdrop Tree.
"If you love your family," said Mr. Robin, "you want to protect them,
feed them, love them and take care of them."
Patrick listened carefully to every word. He wanted to be a
wonderful father just like Mr. Robin. The thought of being a dad made him
nervous. "It's so much respawnsibility," he said.
"At least your baby won't fly away," laughed Mr. Robin. "Where
are you going to adopt from?"
"Wiggle said she will drive us all around the planet if she
can," said Patrick. "We are planning to adopt the best puppy in the
world. We just have to find him!"
