Join me on a trip down memory lane as I regale you a story from my childhood.
In the 5th grade we wrote stories which were spiral bound for our keeping. We animated the “books” with our own pictures. My book is long since gone, but I remember the experience well. The family that babysat me for many years had a basset hound. There lies the start to my story.
Fred, the basset hound, had a big family of puppies and his wife. Fred was an upstanding dog and became the President of the United States.
He was a good president. He did a lot of good for his country and the other dogs in the USA. (There were no people in my story… I was 10.)
Fred was such an amazing dog that being a husband and father or the President wasn’t enough. He needed to go into space and explore the galaxy!! He flew into space atop a rocket.
