This is Henry, and he’s been sent to bed because he got into mischief. He’s been a bad boy. His Mother sent him to bed. He’s an only child and he’s spoiled. Henry’s parents are in their own bedroom, but they’re not sleeping. Not until he does! His dog is with him on the end of the bed. He’s not very happy. He’d rather be playing with other dogs outside. Does Henry have the mumps? Henry’s dog’s name is Buddy. He likes dogs. He’s got three of them! Buddy looks very comfortable. Henry wonders “Why am I here?” He wants to sneak out of bed. He’s going to go play with the dogs – because dogs can’t get the mumps!
