The Pig and the dog
By: Hannah Broyles
There was a dog names Sparky and a pig named Mike. One day Sparky thought he should pay a visit to the zoo. Sparky Knew he would see lots of animals and he could talk to them. Sparky came across a Elephant and Sparky said " your big and everybody doesn't like you!" to the Elephant, But the elephant just ignored him. Then Sparky came across a tiger " you are ugly!" Said sparky, But the tiger just ignored him. Then Sparky came across a hippo and he said " you weirdo all you can to is hop! nothing else" But once again The hippo looked at Sparky but just ignored him. Finally Sparky Came across a pig who was laying in the mud and his name was Mike. Sparky shouted at Mike and said " you weird thing your pink and gross! get away from me!" but Mike just looked at Sparky and said " well you can think that but I like and I will not let that bother me at all. Sparky huffed off And went home, but he knew he had to go back to the zoo tomorrow to talk to Mike.
Sparky woke up early to get to the zoo just a little after it opens to be sure he sees the animals. When Sparky got to the park he expected all the animals to say Hello to him but they all looked at him then looked away. Sparky was silent all the way in till he got to Mikes pig pen. Once he got there he looked at Mike and said "what did I do wrong?" Mike slowly lifted his head up and looked at Sparky and said " well if you tried to be nice and not call all of the other animals names maybe they would want to talk to you". Sparky listened to this idea and said " I'm sorry Mike you are not too pink and I think its cool you can lay in mud whenever". Mike looked at Sparky and said " Thank you don't worry I will forgive you." "oh thank you Mike!" exclaimed Sparky. Sparky raced off toward the elephants cage and said " Please forgive me elephant what I did was very wrong!" Then Sparky races down to the Tigers Cage and shouted " Tiger Oh I am so sorry please forgive me!" The tiger lifted his head and said "I do forgive you". Then without any more words spoken Sparky raced down as fast as he can to the hippos side of the zoo. " Oh I am so sorry please forgive me!". Sparky raced out to the middle of the zoo and the zoo animals followed Sparky. And they all told him that they will forgive him but next time to but other peoples feelings first before his.
