Little Lost Dog.

Extracts from this document...


Little Lost Dog In the beginning, on one cool, summer morning, when the birds sang merrily in the weeping willow trees and the air was peaceful and calm as the gold, fresh, rewarding harvest, a stubby, short dog skipped out of his rather abandoned, lonely-looking kennel. Johnny, the little dog was a dog that loved adventure, sightseeing and exploring. However, Johnny became unsatisfied and ungrateful with the regular country life that he lived and grew more and more bored of it. Instead, he wanted to venture into the bright lights of the city that he had heard so much about. It is 7am; the dawning sun finally shines her bright vermilion rays on the wide-open spaces of Jakes Farm. Jimmy rounded up his six-hardworking sheep dogs on the green feeding them their regular long awaited breakfast meals. In sour relief, they all quickly took to their bowls. "You hungry mutts," Jimmy chuckled, "You deserve every last grub." Johnny, who was the seventh, was the last to come. He was the odd part of the team. Jimmy then placed Johnny's bowl on the floor, Johnny looked at him feverishly as if he was about to have a cold. "What's up with you?" pondered Jimmy. Johnny then slowly nibbled his breakfast like a rabbit; he did not look very well at all. The others just snubbed Johnny still concentrating on their scrumptious meals, "O what a stubborn, self-centred hound" they all thought together. ...read more.


Johnny then sniffed and snuffled instinctively, he then smelled the 'meal of the day' from the restaurant, the long strips of sausages, the finished bones, the bitches he wanted to mate, the cats he wanted to chase, all of which he picked up the scent without having absolutely any doubt in mind. He thought of it to be a doggy high life, ignorantly not knowing that it certainly was a dog-eat-dog world out there. The next morning Johnny rounded up all of his hound friends and decided to tell them what happened. Tommy, Mattie, Pete, Jamie, Early and Frankie all gathered round to listen to Johnny tell his tale. Pete, the clever one, gave Johnny a wise word of advice, "You must be joking about going to the city, the dogcatchers will catch you alive!" he said wisely. All the others agreed except Jamie who was the mischievous one. "Give it a shot Johnny!" he said encouragingly, "You never know what cool bones you'll find there." "I'm quite confused!" Johnny exclaimed, "Really! It all looked, sounded and smelt so real! Honest!" All the other dogs howled mockingly at Johnny for they thought that he had made a mad fool of a mongrel at his age. They simply didn't know that he was telling the truth all along. Later on that week, after the whole mental issues that had occurred, Johnny finally decided to take some action. ...read more.


He was very pleased with the big adventure that he wished for earlier on. No matter what the up and downs Johnny faced, he learnt to not complain and to look up in times of troubles. Back at home, Johnny ran tirelessly down the green to lick his old friends, "Ah, home sweet home." He thought in relief. He new his time had finally come. The other poodles ran back to him in the same way. It was a great reunion. The all-new Johnny told them about his life at the city. They and all the other great and small farm animals all sat down in the haystack and listened carefully to him speak as if he were a preacher preaching a great sermon to a great congregation. He told them all about his thoughts, trances and visions of an adventure as far as the eye could see. He told them all about his ungratefulness and how it affected him in the past. He last but not least, told them about the new lessons that he learnt and new friends he made in the city and how they made him a better character. It came to pass, that finally Johnny learnt the new precepts of 'a dog's life' and also learnt to appreciate his very green home. He helped Jimmy round up the sheep, helped Mrs Smith hang the washing up, he even helped Mr Smith feed the chickens. Johnny had at the end become the very dog he wanted and needed to be. This made him proud. THE END Created on 01/10/2003 13:01 By Emmanuel Yemi ...read more.
