|Lucy woke up one morning and looked out the window. "Oh boy! Snow!"
Sure enough little white ice feathers were floating around creating an elaborate and beautiful dance across the sky.
"I think I'll go run around in it!"
Lucy stretched, then bounded outside.
As soon as she stepped outside her front door, she halted and took a deep breath. Lucy had never before seen snow, but all of her doggy pals had told her about it and she just couldn't wait fur her first ever winter (she had been born in the beginning of summer). Her friends had told her that snow was a white, soft thing you could walk on and that humans often made delicate tennis balls out of them. They also told her that it was edible and was tasteless, turning into cool water in your mouth. She couldn't wait to experience the wonderful thing everyone called "snow".
Just as Lucy got outside Buster came bounding and leaping across the yard from the house across the street.
"Lucy!" he yelped sliding to a halt just barely in time to avoid bowling her over, "Isn't this great?"
Maya came plowing through the snow from another of the houses nearby. But unlike the other pups, Maya didn't look very happy. This was unusual because she loved snow.
"What's wrong?" Asked Lucy and Buster in unison. "ACHOOO!! Well, I was out this morning really early, playing in the snow while taking my morning walk, and I started eating tons and tons of snow and rolling on it..ACHOOO!!! And an hour later I didn't feel so good. I have a headache and I keep on sneezing, what a great day to start the holidays..." Maya said with great effort.
"Oh poor Maya." Lucy said.
"Gee Maya, I'm really sorry about that. How about we go over to my house for hot tea and leave the snow play for later."
"Oh, that would be ACHOO!!..that would be pawsome! Let's go!" and just as Maya was about to leave with her buddies, Kena came running at them. "Ughhh...it's my little sister..."Maya said.
"Hiya Hiya guys! Watcha doin?" Kena asked.
"Ummm..nothing..."Maya instantly answered.
"Oh...cause I brought ginger bread man treats fur everyone! I made them myself!" Kena said.
Maya felt mean fur not wanting her sister to come along after she had made kindly treats fur everyone.
"One sec, Kena" Maya said, and went to aske Lucy and Buster if it was alright if she could tag along, and they said it was fine.
"Okay, would you like to join us, Kena? We are going to walk over to Buster's fur some hot tea, and we could have your treats with that. What do you say?" Maya told Kena.
"Pawsome! Thanks fur letting me come!" Kena answered.
And they walked into the woods towards Busters home.
When they got there Buster made sure everypup had a seat then went to make hot tea while Kenya passed around the cookies.
Everypup jumped as Maya let out a Great Dane sized sneeze.
"Bless you!" Buster called from the kitchen. He brought out the tray with tea mugs on it then ran to go find some tissues.
Nestle, Buster's baby sister walked drousily into the room when she heard all the voices.
"What all you doin'?" she asked.
"Sorry, little one. did we wake you?"
