It’s Christmas time. The tree is partly decorated in the living room and there is a big tub filled with things that are still needed to decorate the tree. The lights haven’t even been strung on the tree yet.
The dog and cat both live at the house and like to hang out in the living room, especially during the holidays. During the holidays there is so much to see and so much mischief to get into. They like the lady who lives there. It’s a pretty good place and she is a really good mom. She went shopping and left the dog and cat alone in the living room. She could be under the tree but we don’t see any feet so that’s probably not true!
The dog may have accidentally knocked over the Christmas tree and there are decorations and toys spread out all over the floor! That’s right! He looks like he has done something naughty but he is smiling about it. The dog is named Spot, because he doesn’t have any!
The cat looks as if he is worried and would be saying, if he could talk, “I didn’t do it!” He is checking out the damage. The cat is named Elliot because he looks like a cat we know named Elliot. He is a really smart cat and knows it. The owner will surely think, if there is any question about it that the dog is the one who knocked over the tree.
When the mom comes home from shopping she will scream when she first enters the living room. Then she will look around and say “What a mess!!” She will see Spot and Elliot there and will also say “Oops, oh darn, I guess I’ll have to get some help putting the tree back up. Well, Spot and Elliot, what do you have to say for yourselves?” Elliot meows and runs out of the room. Spot barks. They are, after all, one big happy family!
