A Chester-Charlie Story
Once there was a puppy who was lost. He lived in a city. It was raining. The cars splashed him. He was cold and muddy and hungry. He was scared and sad.
He wanted to find a home and he knocked on many doors of many apartments.
At one apartment, two children answered the door. When they saw the puppy, they called to their daddy and mommy. Please! the children said. We will help take care of him!
They took the puppy inside and gave him a bath and dried him and brushed his fur. They gave him food and water. The puppy wagged his tail.
The mommy said, should we keep this puppy? The children said, Yes! Please! The puppy wagged his tail again.
The daddy said, what will we name him? The boy said, Chester! The girl said, Charlie!
The mommy asked the puppy, do you like the name Chester-Charlie? The puppy wagged his tail. He was happy. He had a warm home and food and children to play with him.
The family took Chester-Charlie to a park. When Chester-Charlie saw the grass and a fence all around, he wagged his tail.
When the children threw a ball, he chased it. When a bird flew into the tree, he barked. When a squirrel ran up the tree, he barked again.
Chester-Charlie had found a home and he had four new friends: a boy, a girl, a bird, a squirrel.
He gave the children kisses. He was so happy!
