|Once upon a time, in a neighborhood with big trees and small houses, there lived a dog named Nigel.|
|“Yes, so I am,” Nigel told him. “Boo!” (which sounded like “woof!”), and he jumped up.|
Much to his delight, the cat did something amusing. He made a funny, indignant “meow” sound and scampered away along the fence with impressive speed.
Nigel ran after him.
The cat jumped off the fence and was over on the other side of the street in no time at all.
Nigel’s only regret was that the game had been so short.
He hoped that cat would come again.
|He settled down in a shady area and chewed on a stick, listening to the wind through the trees. It made him sleepy, so he decided he would take a nap.|
