2: Once there was a dog named Smithy who came to a new farm. Once he got to the farm he saw a lot of Dogs and they acted very different than he and his old friends acted. So he decided to act differently so he could fit in. When he went over to the dogs he met Alejandro. Alejandro was a big dog that was very smart and was a great leader. Alejandro happily showed Smithy around the farm and when they were over, they went to see another dog named Brooke.
4: Brooke was a very kind dog and was very happy to see Smithy. She told Smithy about all the dogs and what they do every day. This made Smithy upset because the other dogs really did act differently. So he just acted like every else
5: Then finally he met Duncan, who was a dog that caused a lot of trouble around the farm. Brooke told Smithy that Duncan wouldn't do anything bad to him and then Duncan ran off to the barn.
6: Smithy wasn’t sure on what to do, he wanted to be himself but was to afraid of what everyone would think about him. He thought all night and then finally decided to be himself when no one would be around. So when everyone went to the barn he went to the back and rolled around in the hay bales. He had so much fun until he had to go get something to eat with the others.
7: Every day he went to the back to play in the hay and no one knew he was back there. Alejandro soon started to get suspicious an looked everywhere for Smithy. Alejandro almost caught Smithy but he stopped before anyone could see him.
8: Smithy soon got another idea. He climbed a little ladder and then jumped into the pile of hay. Then he made up a game of it and once he thought it over and decided the rules, he finally could play the game. Smithy had so much fun he couldn't stand it. But he started to feel all alone. Then he thought of inviting everyone else to come play, but he decided not to and Smithy thought on how to make the game even better than ever. He then got the hose from the farm house, brought over to a bucket and got onto the ladder he had & jumped into the bucket. He swam like a fish and forgot all about the other dogs.
10: Just then Alejandro, Brooke and Duncan came around the barn and saw Smithy swimming in the bucket. Smith was scared on what they were going to say about him but they all thought it looked very fun. But Smithy was surprised on all the reactions; he thought they would not want to be with him if they ever found out about his ways that he played. But everyone joined in one Smithy's fun and they all had a great time together. Smithy just had to always be himself.
