For context, this page would take place in the midst of a story where Shorty has come back to where ever he and Baldy reside with a giant, terrible, slimy toad-like monster that would roughly be between the size of a large cow and a small house. Shorty calls said monster "Steve" and wants to keep it as a pet. Baldy is somewhat leery of the proposition, but relents to give Shorty a try to tame it. This page would be part of said taming.
1 - Shorty holds a book whose cover reads "An Oaf's Guide To Taming Pets". There is a picture of a clueless looking dwarf (who shares a strong resemblance to Shorty) on the cover. Shorty looks pensively at what's written within.
SHORTY (1): Lemme see...
SHORTY (2): Roll over!
2 - Steve the horrible toad monster sits there, doing nothing. No dialogue.
3 - Shorty is a little surprised. Not to be disappointed, he tries a change of tactics.
SHORTY (1): Oookay. Mebbe a little much for ye. How about...
SHORTY (2): Speak!
4 - Repeat panel 2. Steve continues to do nothing. No dialogue.
5 - Baldy comes in, looking over Shorty's shoulder at the book and pointing at a particular entry. Shorty pushes him away, insisting he doesn't need any help.
BALDY: Try that one.
SHORTY: Shove off! I don' need yu meddlin' in me hard work. I can do this on me own.
6 - Turning back to his "pet", Shorty tries a third command, looking confident in the chances of success.
7 - Repeat panel 2. Steve continues to do nothing. No dialogue.
8 - Shorty turns to Baldy, a smug smile on his face.
SHORTY: See? I told y--
9 - Steve starts belching fire everywhere. Shorty and Baldy duck down to get out of the way of the projectile flames.
SFX: Fire Belch!
