Full Text of My Pet Goat
In honor of all of the donors giving $$$$$ to the new Library, I felt it was fitting to share with them the full text of MY PET GOAT. It is a story of a brave goat who had to prove his worth to the family he lived with. I taught this story many years ago to the children in my classroom. Enjoy this wonderful tale that had W. so transfixed that he was unable to respond to a national crisis.





THE PET GOAT


A girl got a pet goat. She liked to go running with her pet goat. She played with her pet goat in her house. She played with her pet goat in her yard.

But the goat did some things that made the girl's dad mad. The goat ate things. He ate cans and he ate canes. He ate pans and he ate panes. He even ate capes and caps.

One day her dad said, "That goat must go. He eats too many things."

The girl said, "Dad, if you let the goat stay with us, I will see that he stops eating all those things."

He dads said, "We will try it."

So the goat stayed and the girl made him stop eating cans and canes and caps and capes.

But one day a car robber came to the girl's house. He saw a big red car near the house and said, "I will steal that car."

He ran to the car and started to open the door.

The girl and the goat were playing in the backyard. They did not see the car robber.



MORE TO COME.............







THE GOAT STOPS THE ROBBER (next story in the series)



A girl had a pet goat. Her dad had a red car.

A car robber was going to steal her dad's car. The girl and her goat were playing in the back yard.

Just then the goat stopped playing. He saw the robber. He bent his head down and started to run for the robber. The robber was bending over the seat of the car. The goat hit him with his sharp horns. The car robber went flying.

The girl's dad ran out of the house. He grabbed the robber. "You were trying to steal my car," he yelled.

The girl said, "But my goat stopped him."

"Yes," her dad said. "That goat saved my car."

The car robber said, "Something hit me when I was trying to steal that car."

The girl said, "My goat hit you."

The girl hugged the goat. Her dad said, "That goat can stay with us. And he can eat all the cans and canes and caps and capes he wants."

The girl smiled. Her goat smiled. Her dad smiled. But the car robber did not smile. He said, "I am sore."


THE END

2. Clearly a metaphor for Iraq.
The girl is Howard Dean and the dad is supposed to be Hillary. No wait, the goat is Dean and the dad is the voters. Now wait, the swing voters. The car is obviously Iraq, or maybe the deficit.

Well, at least we know who the robber is. It's Cheney. Or maybe Diebold. No, wait, it's...

5. the goat is a messy, destructive creature who redeems himself
... by protecting people. Bush, on the other hand, just makes things worse.
