THE PUPPY AND HIS NOSE by B.Gunin Khushi
One day a puppy named HOPE was bullied by three bad dogs. They teased him “He..he..he..you can’t sniff”.
The little Hope ran away sadly to his mom. He reported the bad news to his mom. His mom advised him to practice smelling. From that day, the little puppy Hope practiced smelling and learnt that his nose is not useless.
Suddenly, he saw a breaking news “The leader of the village is missing”. The villagers were searching the leader. Hope used his power of the nose to find out the leader. He was sniffing for hours in the forest. Finally, he found the leader in a cave trapped by the foxes. They were planning to eat the leader for their lunch.
Hope barked on those foxes loudly. Everyone heard Hope barking and rushed inside the cave. All the foxes were howling and ran away to escape. Now, the little Hope became super hero of the village since he saved the leader of the village.
His family got happy and his bulliers were surprised, felt ashamed and learnt a lesson.
