A Dog With a Secret

Fighting Words Mayo, Craggagh National School, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class.November 19th 2015

Billy the stray dog is crawling along the pavement on a cold, rainy day.

The streets are very busy and there is lots of cars and noise and lots of people are walking into him. 

Billy has lovely black and brown fur but it is very muddy and dried up. Poor Billy is a dog with a special secret.

As Billy walks down the back alley he hears a loud banging and rattling. He sees a large furry tail sticking out of a trash can. 

“Ruff Ruff Hello there!” barks Billy. Suddenly a black ball of fur standing on end jumps out. 

“Meowwwwww psssssssst..” hissed the cat.

“Sorry” whined Billy “I didn’t mean to scare you. What on earth are you doing in there?” 

“Do you need some help?” added Billy. 

“I’ve been doing this for a long time because I’m homeless and I don’t need any help.” says Jelly crankily.

“I’m homeless as well.” says Billy happily.
