This is the only dog that exists on top of the mountain.
The little boy is 10 or maybe 13. His name is John.
He’s sitting and eating something that he got out of kitchen. Something sticky like taffy. The dog would like a taste of whatever he’s eating.
It was expensive good candy in that dish. It’s a tin of expensive candy. It was a present to his mother.
Uh-oh!! He’s going to be in big trouble.
His Mom was saving it for something special. She was having a birthday party that night and she was saving it for that. She was much displeased and was going to smack his bottom. But then she got soft-hearted. She was about to punish him, but then she saw the dog there in the corner and she thought the dog would rescue the boy. The dog’s name is Tiddlywinks and she thought,” Oh. I can’t smack him because Tiddlywinks will come after me!”
The dog is waiting to get his share. He just wants a little bit. He looks as if he knows something and he does sure enough!
His mother might show up any minute. He knows he did mischief. When his mother comes he’s gonna run and hide. But his shoes are dirty. They don’t fit. He tracked mud all over the kitchen floor. He tried to put the lid back on the goodie tin but it slipped off. He’s going to pretend that he never knew what was inside and his mother will say, ”I’ll take care of this!”
He’s been up to mischief before.
The father’s going to have a few words with the boy. When he gets home, he will have a laugh. And that’s going to be the most exciting thing of all.
He’s going to grow up to be the World’s Heavyweight champion!!
But his Mom wanted him to be a professor.
Uh-oh. Put the lid back on. She’s coming!!
It remains to be seen what will happen at the birthday party. There are a number of possibilities depending on we don’t know what!
