"I can do this," you think to yourself. "I'm just a dog, but even an idiot can dial 911, right?"
Running into the living room, you bowl over the little table holding the family's telephone and knock it to the ground. The familiar "BUZZZ" sound greets your ears, hooray!
You deftly try to pick out the right numbers on the phone, push a couple of them, and to your joy, you hear the phone ringing on the other side!
"....At the tone, the time will be, 9:23 am...... BEEP"
Oh no! This isn't going to work - you aren't able to use a telephone - you are a dog!
