Spot’s Red Dress

“Oh Daisy!” exclaimed Spot, when she saw her friend walking up the laneway. “I love your new red dress.”

“Why thank you!” exclaimed Daisy. “I bought it at the little dress shop in the village.”

“I would just love to own such a nice dress,” said Spot.

Heather Hansen just came up the driveway. She just got off the school bus.

“Hi Spot!” exclaimed Heather. “Hi Daisy!”

“Hi Heather,” said Spot. “What do you think of Daisy’s dress? Isn’t it beautiful?”

“Yes,” said Heather. “It is.”

Later that evening, Heather and Fawn were sitting on the bench outside.

“Valentine’s Day is coming up soon,” said Fawn. “I want to get something really special for Spot.

“I know what you can get for her,” said Heather. “And it will be perfect for Valentine’s Day.”

“Really,” said Fawn.

“Yes,” said Heather. “Daisy came over today and Spot admired the new red dress that she was wearing.”

“Does that mean that I will have to go to a dress shop?” asked Fawn. “Cause if that is the case, I’m not going.”

“I’ll go with you,” said Heather.

“You will,” said Fawn.

Fawn and Heather went into the village that Saturday. They went into the village dress shop and they saw the red dress right away. However, when they enquired about the price of it, Fawn was very disappointed.

“I can’t afford that,” said Fawn to Heather, once they stepped outside. “What am I going to do?”

“I don’t know,” said Heather. “I was going to help you out but I don’t even have that much money.”

Fawn and Heather started walking home. They passed by the fabric shop.

“Wait here,” said Heather.

Heather went into the fabric shop and a few minutes later she came out with a parcel under her arm and a big smile on her face.

“What are you going to do?” asked Fawn.

“I’m going to make Spot a dress,” said Heather.

Fawn and Heather went home and Heather spent the rest of the week sewing a dress for Spot. Each night, Fawn came over and talked to Heather while she worked.

On Valentine’s Day, both Fawn and Heather presented the dress to Spot.

“Oh I love this dress,” said Spot. “Thank you so much!”


 

Moral of this Story:

  • Sometimes there are alternative ways of doing things.
  • Example: Fawn was going to purchase Spot a red dress for Valentine’s Day but it was too expensive. Instead, Heather purchased fabric and made Spot a dress.
