Dog and Bear: Teamwork

April 6, 2020

Dog and Bear: What should we do to help?

“Aunt Lucy said we should be helpful,” said Dog.

“Yeh.  I know, I know.  What’da you think we should do?” asked Bear.

Dog answered.  “Uh… see the dishes in the sink?  I think they’re clean.”

“How do you know for sure they’re clean?”  inquired Bear.

‘They look shiny.  I guess they’re clean.”  Dog did not always think things through.  

“Maybe we should put ’em in the cupboard.”

“That sounds like a GREAT idea!”

Dog and Bear jumped up and started their first good deed.  They knew the plates went on the top shelf and they were ready to go!  They couldn’t reach the top shelf so they needed to be creative.  And Aunt Lucy said they should be creative.

Dog and Bear: Teamwork

Dog opened the toaster oven door and used it to climb to the top of the oven.  Then Bear got on the door.  Bear handed a plate to Dog then Dog stretched to put the plate on the high shelf.

It was a GREAT plan!

What could go wrong?

Everything went smoothly for a few minutes.  But, it should come as no surprise, Dog and Bear could easily lose focus.  

Dog started to act silly.  He hopped on one foot, then reached into the air and pretended to catch birds, then closed his eyes.  Anything for a laugh.

Bear thought it was time for a joke.  

“Dog, would you like to hear a cat joke?”

“Yeh!  Tell me.”

Bear began.  “An old man lived way out in the country, back in the woods.  He lived all by himself.  Well, almost…  He also had 10 cats and a rowboat out on a nearby lake…”

“When are you gonna tell the joke?” interrupted Dog.


“Just hold on and listen…  One day the old man decided to take his 10 cats for a boat ride.  The cats got into the boat and he rowed the boat onto the lake.  Then one of the cats jumped right out of the boat!” said Bear.

Dog laughed.  The joke was getting better.

Bear asked, “So, how many cats were left in the boat?”

“Euh, let me think.”

Bear pushed him to answer.

“9 cats were left!” shouted Dog.

“Nope.  None were left.  They were all COPY CATS!” said Bear.

Dog laughed and LAUGHED!

Dog laughed so hard he tumbled off the top of the oven.


Dog and Bear: Losing Focus

“Dog!  Bear!  What on earth are you two doing in there?”

“Nothin’ much,” came the meek reply.

Mom was in the other room but it seemed she had a magic radar.  She always knew when they were acting up and she was not too happy with the racket they were making.

    I love your blog so far. I really want to see what happens next! The joke is really funny, too! I wonder what’s going to happen next? Are they going to still be troublemakers?

      Dog and Bear are being themselves. You’ll have to keep reading to see what happens. And thanks for reading and commenting. I appreciate it.

    Great story! I liked the part where Dog thought that the dishes were clean enough. I do have one question though, if Dog and Bear’s Aunt and mom is a llama, then why aren’t they llamas too? Are they adopted? I don’t know who my favorite character is so far. I think it’s Dog.

      Good questions. Since this is the world of pretend… Dog and Bear talk… they get on the computer, etc… anything is possible. Actually, Aunt Lucy is a Llama and Mom is a Camel. You will soon notice that other family members are a mixed group of animals. Thanks for your comments!!! And I’m glad you like Dog. He is busy and happy and doesn’t always pick up on the details.
