Dog and Bear: Getting Started

April 19, 2020

Dog and Bear: What should we do to help?

Dog and Bear sat and enjoyed the after-effects of a good meal.  They were filled up, happy, content and… 

“Mmmm, that was the best pusgetti,” said Dog.

“Sure was.  Mom sure knows how to make super good stuff,” responded Bear.

“Yeh.  I’m kind’a tired, I might go take a rest,” yawned Dog.

Bear thought a moment then suggested, “I’m tired too, but I think we should do something nice for Mom.”

“Like what?”

“Let’s think… what would she like us to do?” asked Bear.

“I dunno,” said Dog.

“I got it!  Look at the dirty dishes!  Let’s wash the dishes,” said Bear.


Dog and Bear were soon busy doing dishes.  They were a bit small for the task, but they didn’t let that stop them.

Mom walked in as they washed dishes.  

“My, my.  Look at you two!  Thank’s so much for all your help.”


She gave them big hugs then went to the other room.

Dog was first to speak.  “Wow, I think Mom was really happy to see us help!”

“Yeh, she sure was surprised to see us doing dishes,” observed Bear.

“I know.  And it didn’t take that long.”

“Sometimes the hardest thing is Getting Started.”

(What could possibly happen next?)

      Thanks for the comment. And you are so right… Dog and Bear are young and need time to learn right and wrong, etc. But, they are on the right track.

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, it is a good idea to do nice things for your parents. It makes them feel good. Plus, it is good when life is a journey where we all do nice things for one another.
