Table of Contents

Quarf! Quarf!" Wiggles shook her long white tail feathers as she practiced her barking that morning.

Wiggles wanted to be a dog. If she were a dog, then maybe everyone would love her. She remembered when she was a duckling. The children played with her then, and cuddled her all the time.

Wiggles lived in the back yard of the Wallace's house on Christopher Road. She had three playmates: Stanley, Shelby, and Sidney. They were Beagles. The four animals played in the backyard, and slept inside the cozy dog kennel.

Sometimes they all went swimming in the small pond at the bottom of the hill.When Adam and Ashley came home from school each day, they would go for a walk with their mother, taking Stanley, Shelby, and Sidney with them. If the children's father came home from work early, he went too.But Wiggles never got to go. She had to stay home. All by herself.

It seemed like the whole family would be gone for hours. Wiggles would get very lonely. She'd hop up onto her soft bed and wait.She sat up a little taller on her bed and took a deep breath. "Quarf!" Well, it was certainly louder. She'd try one more time."Quarfff!" Wiggles wings flapped, taking her into the air. Her orange bill bumped against the latch on the gate, opening it. Wiggles landed on the grass outside the kennel.

"Oh, dear. This has never happened before. I suppose I should go back inside," Wiggles said.

She started to waddle back where she belonged, but paused. She so longed to go for a walk. If the rest of the family didn't want to take her along, why couldn't she take a walk by herself?Wiggles waddled across the lush green lawn, felling quite happy. But when she came to the street, her happiness faded. A car roared down the pavement, blaring its horn!
