In LA we have been doing a variety of projects. One project was to make our own wisdom tale! My wisdom tale called Running Away from Home, was about a puppy who ran away from home. Here is my wisdom tale story!
There once was a small , white Maltese puppy named Cooper who ran away from his home. One day he was walking down the street on a rainy day, and ran into a three brown, mean poodles named Cody, Paul, Peter who thought they were better than the small Maltese.
When the Maltese approached the poodles, the poodles said, “What are you doing at the side town you don’t belong here!”
The maltese said, “I ran away from home.”
Meanwhile, there is an old yellow Labrador across the street watching, but no one even pays her any attention. The poodles started making fun of the small Maltese. The Maltese kept walking and tried to ignore the mean poodles. Cooper started feeling homesick. Cooper started to find his way back home. Along the way an old but wise yellow Labrador retriever named Sandy, came up close to Cooper.
“I have been watching you run away from your house and get into trouble with those mean poodles,” said Sandy.
“You have?” said Cooper.
The old dog said, “I have and I also saw you not stick up for yourself when those poodles were teasing you.”
Cooper hung his head low and said, “I couldn’t do anything, the poodles were much bigger than me!”
“We are all equal Cooper. Just because they might be bigger on the outside doesn’t mean that they are better in any way,” said Sandy.
After Cooper thought about what Sandy said, he was thinking about how she was right. Cooper had an idea. He was going to walk back through that part of town where the poodles lived and tell them what he had learned from Sandy. Cooper started on his way back to that part of town. When he finally reached there, the poodles were eating out of their fancy bowls. When Cooper got closer to the poodles, the poodles stopped eating and trotted over to the Maltese. Cooper asked for just two minutes of their time. The poodles agreed to listen to what Cooper had to say.
“I ran into a very old but wise dog named Sandy, while I was trying to continue in my journey and she told me something that was very true,” said Cooper.
The poodles were becoming very restless with Cooper. At this point the poodles didn’t care about what Cooper had to say.
“We are all equal and you shouldn’t treat people the way you treated me earlier today!” exclaimed Cooper. “Just because you are bigger than me doesn’t mean you can treat me any kind of way,” said Cooper.
The poodles all thought about what Cooper had just recited to them. After thinking about what Cooper had said, the poodles simply agreed with Cooper and the poodles apologized. When the poodles apologized, they all quickly became friends.
Moral: Everyone is equal, don’t be mean
