THE OLD MAN & HIS HOUND DOG

title11THE OLD MAN & HIS HOUND DOG

There once was an old man who was very lonely. One day he decided it was time to buy himself a hound dog to keep him company. So the old man walked to the local dog pound and got himself a hound dog with a big ol belly and very long ears. As the old man walked through his little white gate he noticed the hound dog was not following. To his surprise, the hound dog’s belly was too big for him to fit through the gate.

The old man was weak and need help to get the hound dog through the gate. “Hey lil billy goat, can you push my hound dog through the gate for me?” asked the old man. So, the billy goat tried to push the hound dog through the gate and his horn got stuck in the fence instead. “Oh dear, now I must get my hound dog through the gate and get the billy goat unstuck from my fence,” cried the old man.

“Little duck, can you help me get my hound dog through the gate and also help me get the billy goat unstuck from my fence?” asked the old man. So the duck ran very fast and ran right into the hound dog, then flipped into the fence where his wing got stuck beside the billy goat. “Oh no! How am I gonna get my hound dog through the gate and get a billy goat and a duck unstuck from my fence?” cried the old man.

“Old donkey, can you help me get my hound dog through my gate, as well as get a billy goat and a duck unstuck from my fence?” asked the old man. So, the old donkey walked slowly towards the hound dog and tried to push him through the gate. The hound dog did not move. Then the donkey tried to push the billy goat and the duck from the fence and got his head stuck in the
fence. “Oh my, how am I gonna get my hound dog through the fence and get a billy goat, duck and old donkey unstuck from my fence?” asked the old man.

“Very large bull, can you help me get my hound dog through the gate, as well as get a billy goat, duck and old donkey unstuck from my fence?” asked the old man. So, the very large bull ran very fast and knocked the entire fence down to the ground. The hound dog ran through the gate and the billy goat, duck and old donkey were freed from the fence. “Thank you very large bull!” exclaimed the old man. The old man never did rebuilt his fence and the hound dog never got stuck in the gate again.
