The Adventures of Dove Step the Sheep-Chapter 9

Dove awoke with a start! He looked for Mimi but she was no where to be seen. Then he noticed his tail was long again. Then he heard someone shouting, "Dove, Dove, Dove!" Then he woke again and saw Mimi. She was whispering, "Dove, wake up."

"What?" said Dove.

"Shhhh, you passed out after the stink bug squirted you and in all your prancing around you landed under a beehive. Be quiet!" said Mimi.

Things couldn't have felt more bleak to Dove. He had to make sure he was only hallucinating about being in a jungle where so many sheep were swallowed whole by an anaconda. And now he was under a beehive?!

Things couldn't get worse. Then they did.
There in his view was the biggest spider he had ever seen. Oh! Ewwww! Please let me wake up and be far, far away from this place. The wind was blowing but the spider merely bounced in the security of its very sturdy web.

That was it. Dove couldn't take any more. He jumped up and ran pell-mell straight for the lake!

There he met up with two young men who simply adored sheep.

He knew he would be safe and secure in their care forever and a day. He hoped that they would find another sheep to help keep him company-because sheep need flocks!
He begged them to take him home with them and keep him safe. Dove Step was certain he would enjoy sharing the boyhood adventures of camping and treasure hunts and tasting new flowers along the way. There may even be treasure hunts to add excitement to the path of life.

He hoped they would keep him safe from all the treacherous wild animals in a sheep's life. Like....
Until next year Dove Step, keep your hooves on solid ground, your jaws chawing on sweet green grasses and take care of your special treasure-those two young men!

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know “why” I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
