Once upon a time there was a dog name Teddy.
He grew up in small apartments, but one day his mommy moved to a house with a big yard and a fence.
Teddy loved his yard.
He would sniff and play every day.
There was a squirrel who lived HIGH up in the tree.
Actually he lived in several of the trees, and he would run across the fence from tree to tree.
Teddy knew it was his job to guard the yard.
He did this every day.
He guarded the yard from the big bad – or was it the little friendly squirrel?
No squirrel or rabbit, or tadpole or other intruder would invade the yard when Teddy was on duty. Not ever. Teddy made sure.
Teddy and the squirrel where having their usual discussion one day, when Teddy decided to ask Mr. Squirrel – what is your name?
The squirrel was astonished – he did not know how to reply.
Should he introduce himself to the guard dog?
To a little squirrel – that beautiful black barking dog – who could run as fast as he – seem pretty scary.
What should he do?
