A cheerful take on the "dog ate my homework" excuse and the "can't teach a old dog new tricks" adage, "A Very Old Dog" follows the player-character's attempts to housebreak a grad student's science experiment.
This experiment is a playfully menacing pet, and your attempts to train him involve diverting, but straight-forward, puzzles. Unfortunately, a bug in the game's auto-naming feature can break the game, so name your new pet yourself, and you'll likely enjoy this little romp.
This cute game is very brief (about 20 minutes). You've been presented with a new pet velociraptor and must keep him from destroying your apartment. The puzzles are fairly easy, with the exception of the final puzzle, which may not be obvious to everyone. The premise is original enough to make the game an amusing and short diversion.

A very short game. Whatever you do, do not pick up the phone booth; well, you can guess from the title what happens if you do. [--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]
