Hello, I'm Tom.

0:00:060:00:08

Do you like dogs?

0:00:080:00:10

Me too. I absolutely love dogs, and tonight's bedtime story

0:00:100:00:14

is about a very special little waggy-tailed friend

0:00:140:00:17

looking for someone to play with. And it's called Fleabag

0:00:170:00:21

and it's written and illustrated by Helen Stephens.

0:00:210:00:25

There once was a dog who had no name.

0:00:250:00:28

And he had no home.

0:00:290:00:31

What he did have was fleas.

0:00:310:00:33

SCRATCHING But they weren't much company.

0:00:330:00:36

He lived all alone in the big city, and found his dinner

0:00:360:00:39

wherever he could.

0:00:390:00:42

He liked to bark at the huge blue things that thundered past.

0:00:420:00:45

TRAIN RUMBLES PAST WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!

0:00:450:00:49

And run in the big green place, where he saw lots of other dogs.

0:00:490:00:53

The other dogs all had people to take for walks.

0:00:530:00:56

He wished that he had a person, too. BARKING

0:00:560:01:00

Sometimes, he tried to join in the other dogs' games,

0:01:000:01:03

but their people called him Fleabag.

0:01:030:01:06

Told him to shoo!

0:01:060:01:07

Then one day...

0:01:070:01:09

he saw a boy with a ball, but no dog.

0:01:090:01:13

The boy's big person was busy, and he had no-one to play with.

0:01:130:01:17

That didn't seem right.

0:01:170:01:19

So when the boy threw his ball, the dog ran as fast as he could

0:01:190:01:23

across the green stuff, through the pink things

0:01:230:01:26

and caught it.

0:01:260:01:27

FLEABAG PANTS That was fun.

0:01:270:01:29

He'd never done playing before.

0:01:290:01:32

The boy looked very pleased.

0:01:320:01:33

He tickled the dog under the chin.

0:01:330:01:36

The dog liked that, he'd never been tickled before.

0:01:360:01:39

"Don't touch him, Bob," said the boy's big person.

0:01:390:01:42

"He's all mucky."

0:01:420:01:43

"I don't mind," said Bob. "I like him."

0:01:430:01:47

Over the next few days, the dog looked out for his boy

0:01:470:01:51

and the boy looked out for his dog.

0:01:510:01:54

The boy's big person was usually

0:01:540:01:56

too busy to notice, and they became great friends.

0:01:560:02:00

But then one day...

0:02:000:02:02

the boy didn't feel like playing.

0:02:020:02:06

He was too sad.

0:02:060:02:08

He told the dog that his family were moving house the next day.

0:02:080:02:12

They were going far away and he wouldn't be able to play

0:02:120:02:15

with the dog ever again.

0:02:150:02:17

The dog waggled his eyebrows as if he understood,

0:02:180:02:21

but he didn't really.

0:02:210:02:24

Then the boy's big person called out, "Come on, Bob, home time.

0:02:240:02:27

"Leave that little Fleabag alone now."

0:02:270:02:31

"I have to go with my mum," said the boy.

0:02:310:02:34

"I'll miss you."

0:02:340:02:36

And he shook the dog's paw.

0:02:360:02:38

Then the boy followed his mum, and the dog followed his boy

0:02:390:02:44

all the way home.

0:02:440:02:45

That night, the boy couldn't sleep.

0:02:490:02:53

When he looked out his window, he could see his dog,

0:02:530:02:56

sitting far below.

0:02:560:02:57

"I can't leave you behind," he thought.

0:02:570:03:00

And he decided to do something very scary.

0:03:000:03:04

He picked up his suitcase, which was already packed for the move,

0:03:040:03:08

stuffed a few biscuits in his pockets,

0:03:080:03:10

and he tiptoed out of the flat.

0:03:100:03:12

He was scared as he scampered down the stairs.

0:03:120:03:15

He was scared as the heavy door shut behind him.

0:03:150:03:18

DOOR SHUTS And he was scared as he ran

0:03:180:03:21

to meet his friend.

0:03:210:03:22

"Come on, boy," he said bravely, "we're running away!"

0:03:220:03:26

The dog was very confused.

0:03:260:03:29

What was his boy doing outside in the dark?

0:03:290:03:32

He should be safe indoors with his big people.

0:03:320:03:35

FLEABAG WHIMPERS He sat very still.

0:03:350:03:37

"Come on," said the boy.

0:03:370:03:39

But the dog wouldn't move.

0:03:390:03:41

"Biscuit?" said the boy.

0:03:410:03:43

But the dog wouldn't budge.

0:03:430:03:46

"I'll just have to carry you," said the boy.

0:03:460:03:48

But the dog wriggled free and tried to pull his boy back home.

0:03:480:03:52

Then he ran round and round and round barking.

0:03:520:03:55

WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!

0:03:550:03:57

"Shh," said the boy, "You'll wake up Mum and Dad."

0:03:570:04:00

That seemed like a good idea.

0:04:000:04:02

So the dog went, "Woof, woof, woof! Woof, woof, woof..."

0:04:020:04:06

..until a light went on...

0:04:080:04:10

and a worried face looked out.

0:04:100:04:12

The boy's big people seemed rather cross and they sent him

0:04:120:04:16

straight back to bed.

0:04:160:04:18

Then one of them said,

0:04:180:04:20

"I suppose this little Fleabag can sleep here tonight."

0:04:200:04:25

"I think he deserves to," said the other.

0:04:250:04:28

"He did look after Bob."

0:04:280:04:30

The dog was very excited.

0:04:300:04:32

He'd never slept in a real bed before.

0:04:320:04:36

The next day, the family took everything out of their flat

0:04:360:04:39

and put it in an enormous van.

0:04:390:04:42

Then, when the van was full, they got into the car.

0:04:420:04:46

The dog was worried.

0:04:460:04:47

Were his people going somewhere without him?

0:04:470:04:51

Then the man said, "Come on, little Fleabag,

0:04:510:04:54

"hop in, you're coming with us."

0:04:540:04:56

And that's how the dog with no name found a home.

0:04:560:05:00

The dog soon settled in. Dad got rid of his fleas, which was good.

0:05:000:05:04

Mum got him nice and clean,

0:05:040:05:06

which wasn't so good.

0:05:060:05:08

Then Bob got him nice and dirty all over again.

0:05:080:05:11

The dog listened while his family tried to think of a name for him.

0:05:110:05:15

"Scruff," said Mum.

0:05:150:05:17

"Spike," said Dad.

0:05:170:05:18

"Ga-ga," said the baby.

0:05:180:05:20

But the only name that stuck...

0:05:200:05:23

was Fleabag.

0:05:230:05:24

LAUGHTER AND BARKING

0:05:240:05:28

What a lovely little dog. It's a perfect name for him as well.

0:05:280:05:31

I'm sure Fleabag will be going on lots of adventures

0:05:310:05:35

with his new family.

0:05:350:05:36

But now it's time for you to go on an adventure of your own,

0:05:360:05:41

in your dreams.

0:05:410:05:42

So cuddle up to your snuggly friend and drift off to sleep.

0:05:420:05:47

I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.

0:05:470:05:50

Sweet dreams.

0:05:510:05:53

Tom Hardy and his dog Woody invite you to join them for tonight's bedtime story about a wonderful friendship between a young boy and a scruffy little dog.
