HE WHOOSHES AND ZOOMS
Prepare for a landing, Doggy!
Oh, hey. I was just taking Doggy for a little flight before bed.
What do you mean, dogs can't fly?
Are you sure about that?
Because tonight's Bedtime Story might just change your mind.
It's called Some Dogs Do and it's by Jez Alborough.
When Sid set off for school one day, a happy feeling came his way.
It filled him up so much, he found his paws just lifted off the ground.
Without a howl, without a whine, Sid fell up towards the sky.
Through swirling puffs of cloud he twirled
above a tiny toy-town world.
In the land of sun and moon like a doggy-shaped balloon.
At school, Sid asked his best friend Ben, "Did you see me fly just then?"
"Don't be daft," came Ben's reply. "You're a dog and dogs don't fly."
"But I did," said Sid. "I did, I did!"
In the classroom, Sid said "Hey, guess what, I flew to school today."
His classmates giggled, yelped and yowled.
"Dogs don't fly to school," they howled.
"But I did," said Sid. "I did."
Miss Mare, the teacher, shook her head.
"Now, Sid, you shouldn't lie," she said.
"All dogs walk and jump and run,
"but dogs don't fly, it can't be done."
"But I did," said Sid.
Gus said "Right, if you can fly, come outside, let's see you try.
Sid's happiness had gone by then. He tried to get it back again.
He thought about the clouds up high and then he jumped towards the sky.
"You see? You're just a dog," said Gus,
"With paws for walking, just like us.
"That will teach you not to lie. Now you know that dogs don't fly."
When Sid walked home from school that day,
it seemed a long and lonely way.
And once at home with Mum and Dad, deep inside, he still felt bad.
He did the things he always did, but something wasn't right with Sid.
His dad came out and asked, "What's up?
"You seem unhappy, little pup."
Sid sat staring at the sky
and all he said was, "Dogs don't fly."
Sid's Dad slowly raised his head. "I know a secret, Sid," he said.
"Could you keep it safe inside?"
"What's the secret?" Sid replied.
He turned around and then he knew
and now you know the secret too.
Sid's happy eyes were open wide.
"I knew it! Dogs do fly," he cried.
Sid's dad said, "Come fly, then, Sid."
And that's exactly what Sid did.
Do dogs fly? Is it true?
Some dogs don't and some dogs do.
And that story was called Some Dogs Do.
So, now you know that some dogs really can fly.
Hey, I wonder what other secrets dogs have?
And now it's time for you to fly yourself into bed,
so think happy thoughts and off you go.
Sweet dreams. I'll be back again soon for another Bedtime Story.
