A tale about a dog that was so poofy, people thought he was a cloud

Once upon a time, there was a white dog that had big and soft curly hair. He looked like a small cloud. Every time the dog walked, people stared and pointed.

One person yelled, “The sky is falling!”

No matter how many times his owner convinced people that the dog wasn’t a cloud, it never worked. One day the owner saw rain coming from the dog’s belly. His belly even flashed bright lights and made thunder sounds. That little incident never happened again.

Maybe it was a dream or maybe everyone was right about the white dog being a cloud.

A tale about a dog with infinite amounts of hair

Once upon a time, there was a dog that had too much hair. The hair was long enough to cover a ballroom. The hair was thick enough to pull a ship. The hair was dense enough that you needed a chef’s knife to cut the hair. With all that hair, the dog couldn’t see. The dog has eyes, but you would have to push aside endless amounts of hair for hours to see the dog’s face.

So many items find their way into the dog’s hair that they never return. Sometimes people and animals disappear inside the hair. Some say the dog is hiding a ship inside all that hair.

A tale about a cat that barked like a dog

Once upon a time, there was a cat named Dog. Dog knew how to bark. When he was the only kitten in a household with nine dogs, all Dog heard was barking. So instead of doing cat things, he did dog things. Dog wanted to fit in with the dogs so much that he learned how to bark. At first, the discovery scared people. There were not any cats in this world that knew how to bark except Dog. Dog occasionally makes cat noises, but outside of that, he sounds like a Doberman.

The same Doberman dogs that raised Dog.

A tale about a dog that hated buckets

Once upon a time, there was a dog named Bucket that hated buckets. Bucket also hated his name for the same reason. Bucket didn’t like the shape of buckets and how it just stood there for no reason. Bucket would always bark at buckets. Sometimes, the buckets would fall over and roll away forever. Sometimes the buckets would stand there. That would drive Bucket up the wall. He hated all buckets, but specifically, buckets that stood there while he was barking at them. He wanted them to fall over.

He still hates buckets to this day.

A tale about a dog that was nothing but a square

Once upon a time, there was a dog named Square. You don’t see it, but his body is shaped like a square. Every one called him a square. They didn’t call him that because he was being a party pooper. They called him that because he was shaped like one.

Sometimes, his owner wished he was normal-shaped like other dogs, but there was not a whole lot he could do about it. He would have to get used to it.

This was Square. The shape was his identity. He was the square-shaped dog.
