The White's have three different responses. Herbert, the son, is very interested and thinks of immediately becoming rich and famous. Mrs. White doesn't seem to take the paw too seriously. In fact, she likens it to something from Arabian Nights. Mr. White is, at first, just mildly interested, but he is the character who takes it from the fire and decides to keep it!
