    Winnie, like all lively puppies,loved to play!

    She loved to

  • howl and growl

    hide and slide.

  • She loved to snuffle with her wet nose,peep with her sparkling eyes and listenwith her eager ears.

    But, unlike other young puppies,Winnie couldnt quite get the hangof wagging her tail.

  • Shed try herhardest to wag it,but usually herbottom justswayed in the air

    and her tiny taildidnt wag at all.

  • Her mother told Winnienot to worry.Youll soon learn howto do it, she said gently.All puppies tails wageventually.

    But Winnie wanted it to wag now!

  • Winnie wandered off grumpilythrough the farmyard,muttering to herself.

    In the paddock shewatched as the horsesswwiisshheedd its tail.

  • I wish I couldswish my tail, she said.

    But when she tried,her bottom justswayed and herlittle tail didntswish at all.

    Puppies dontswish, they wag!laughed the horse.

  • Winnie wanderedon to the orchardand watched asthe donkeyttwwiirrlleedd its tail.

  • I wish I could twirl my tail,she said.But when she tried, her bottomjust swayed and her little taildidnt twirl at all.

    Puppies dont twirl, they wag!chuckled the donkey.
