Chapter One

Once there was a homeless dog. He didn't have a family, not even a name. He wanted a family more than anything. So, he said good-bye to his friends and off he went, full of confidence, in search of a family.

The first person he met was an old man watering his garden. He looks like a nice man, thought the dog. He went up to him, wagging his tail, which is a dog's way of politely saying hello.

Much to his surprise, the man yelled at him, "Get out of here before you destroy my garden." And he squirted water at the dog. Wow, what a grump. He wouldn't make a good family. And he took off, quickly.

He ran to the park where he found a young man and woman having a picnic. They looked like nice people. Maybe they would make a good family. Their picnic smelled so good that it reminded the dog how hungry he was. He walked toward them, wagging his tail in a polite and friendly manner, hoping to make a good impression.
