Today we present the second story by our friend Tyler. Tyler is the seven year old son of one of our employees. He is extremely gifted in reading. He has dictated the following story to his aunt.
Gregory the Great Dane dog was sleeping in the night. Gregory whose job is to guard the house was suddenly awakened by a loud, crashing noise. Waking up from a deep sleep, Gregory quickly begins prowling the house to find the source of the noise.
Gregory shares the house with three cats, Tye who is a Siamese, Bob who is a Burmese and Jordan who is a Tonkinese cat. Of the three cats, Tye is the most troublesome, and requires constant watching, because he is always trying to do things that he shouldn’t.
Tye, Bob and Jordan had invited Devon, a Devon Rex cat, to spend the night. In the middle of the night Devon, woke up and told the other three that he was really, really hungry. So Tye, Bob and Jordan being nice hosts, began an intense search of the house for the bag of cat food to feed their hungry guest.
After looking in the drawers, in the microwave since Tye can open it up, on the chairs, under the tables, and finally in the cupboard the cats find a bag of food with the word “cat.” The cats use their mouths and paws to get the bag of food down carefully from the cupboard. Tye becomes tired of this slow process, so he takes his strong back feet and kicks the bag of cat food to the floor.
The shock of Tye’s sudden action scares Bob so much that he faints. Tye and Jordan, quickly use their paws to drag Bob to safety, before Gregory comes to check out the noise. Quickly, Devon begins to distract Gregory by biting his tail, running in circles around Gregory. Gregory becomes so distracted by Devon that Tye and Jordan are able to drag Bob to safety.
Tye and Jordan return to the spilled food, grabbing the bag of cat food and push it to the cat bed while Gregory and Devon are still running around the house chasing each other.
Once Tye and Jordan have the food, Devon jumps the rail and runs to the cat bed to enjoy the cat food. Finally, Bob awakens and realizing that he is back in his bed, begins to dine with his special friends. And all is quiet once again in the house.
The end: Except that Gregory keeps barking, since he really isn’t sure what just happened.
Today we introduce a new category of blog posts…Tyler’s Corner. Tyler is the seven year old son of one of our employees. He is extremely gifted in reading. He has dictated the following story to his aunt.
The Legend of the Frost Gargoyle
Once upon a time there were some artic people that were terrified by dragons. They were so afraid of the dragons, that these people stayed in their houses all of the time, because it was safe. One of the most frightening dragons was the Frost Gargoyle.
The Frost Gargoyle’s family started in France. He had many brothers and sisters. But he wanted to check out the artic. He wanted to see footprints, see if there were other dragons living in the artic, and meet any dragons that might be living there.
While walking out through the artic, the Gargoyle saw dragon tracks in the snow. He decided to follow the dragon tracks, so he followed them to the ice cave. There he was for the first time a frost Dragon. He was surprised that he fainted. After all he had never seen a dragon before, and this one was very, very big and very white. That’s why he is called a frost Dragon.
When he awoke, the gargoyle realized that the frost Dragon was preparing to put him on the grill. Of course he was frightened knowing that the frost Dragon wanted to eat him, but when the frost Dragon realized that dinner was a gargoyle, it is frightened him that he too fainted.
Because the dragon was so large, when he fell on the ground, the whole earth shook. This caused all of the dragons and the gargoyles to run to the cave to see what had happened. At this point, there was a dragon meeting, where all the dragons discussed the 50 laws of dragonology.
At this meeting, the dragons decided to allow the gargoyles to become a frost Gargoyle, so the frost Dragon gently patted the gargoyle on the head. So, the gargoyle became the first frost Gargoyle.
After that, the frost Dragon and the frost Gargoyle worked together.
