Nice, Nice! The dog is having a wonderful time choosing his shoes. He’s riding a skateboard. The dog will likely pick the most expensive pair. His name is Jed-Toto. It’s in someone else’s house, in the shoe shop. He doesn’t know which pair to pick. It’s in the morning of course. He’s choosing shoes to take outside, on the verandah. He’s looking to see if it’s OK. He’s listing to see if someone’s coming. He’s happy! He’s got the expensive shoes. He’s very cautious and a bit confused. He’s saying “Where Am I?”
Maybe he notices another dog. He’s saying “Why are you following me? Those shoes are mine. They are my shoes.” He’s picked a good pair with high heels! He sits down and chews up the shoes. He could be locked in. Thinking: “How can I get out of here.” Someone opens the gate and he is free, after a good bark. He has his eye on something. He’s seen a real beauty. A girl dog. It may be a poodle too! Jed-Toto and the poodle play in the park and kiss one another. When 2 strangers meet like that….Oh Gosh, that’s the best part.
Someone hopefully opens the door and he can go home to where he belongs and the other poodle will follow!
It’s a big decision for them both, especially when the owner of the shoes finds them gone. Knowing his reputation with the shoes they will both be locked away!!
