I have been reading the book, "HOUGHTON MIFFLIN Reading, Here We Go".
Situation: A girl is taking a walk with a puppy named Ben. A puddle comes out. All the text of the part with Ben is very short:
Ben is my pet. Ben can not get wet. Is Ben at the vet? Ben is not at the vet yet. Ben can get in a pen. A vet can get a kit. What can a vet do for Ben?
What is the meaning of "can" in the following sentences?
Ben is my pet. Ben can not get wet.
Does "Ben can not get wet" mean "Ben does not want to get wet"? I think that the meaning of all "can" come out here is not "possibility or ability" but a different meaning.
In this sentence, does "can" mean "want"?
