A Tale of Two Puppies

Once upon a time ,there were two Dobi-Hound Puppies who discovered an empty plastic bottle in the middle of the great lawn of Dog Woods. 'How precious!' they thought and decided to share their find.

However being Puppies who've only just about learnt the 'TERM' of Sharing, have yet to master the actual Technique. While they both agree that the bottle should be placed in the middle of them, they found themselves arguing over their 'proximate distance' to their precious find. Each somewhat distrustful of the other. Fearing that the other would simply snatch the precious bottle and flee.

And so, began the tussle between two young pups - who soon discovered that wrestling was much more fun and forgot what they were tussling about in the first place- i.e. sharing the bottle? or the proximate distance TO the bottle?

But along came the REAL McCoy, Basset Hound Tuffy, Lord of Dog Woods and took the plastic bottle for himself - with no intention what so ever to share!

The End.

The moral of the story is ... sharing isn't a Canine's forte... ;)

-As told by Anna the Doberman-

    Smart! In Chinese we have an idiom that loosely translates to "The fights between the stork and the shellfish benefits the fisher man". This tale reminds me of the idiom ;)

  10. Ah the plastic bottles. I have to try to hide mine from Maria as she takes them from me. Something about recycling. Good for you Tuffy that you were wise and waited for the pups to be distracted.
