THE PUPPY GREW UP AND BECAME
BY: PATTY L. FLETCHER
Once upon a time long ago,
When you were very small you know.
In the morning’s early dawn, you were born,
But all too soon from your mother you were torn.
You were sent to live far away with a family you thought forever you would stay.
You learned the neatest and most awesome tricks.
So much more than chasing sticks.
You learned to sit to rest to lay,
You learned to obey in every way.
You did all these things so very well,
And every day you grew.
All too soon your life changed again,
And you made another new friend.
He was your teacher, your very own guide.
Would you forever walk by his side?
No! This was not to be.
You learned all you could from him,
You were given to me.
Fast we became best of friends,
And it is with me you will now stay until our work together ends.
In honor of Guide Dogs, puppy raisers, Trainers, and Handlers Everywhere!
Bubba Tails from the Puppy Nursery at The Seeing Eye Written by Patty L. Fletcher Told by, King Campbell Lee – The Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
In this magical and love filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels
to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of
puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of
learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his
tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one
frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the
urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save
her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell
Victoria Zigler on Dec. 31, 2018 :
What a beautiful story! It’s well told, and is a fun way to teach children – and adults too – about guide dogs, and the wonderful work they do.
