A New Dog in the Village

Malcolm watched out the living room window. A big moving van was at the house next door. Auld Mr. MacTavish had moved out and a new family was moving in. Malcolm noticed a doghouse. It wasn’t the same as Paddy’s. It was made of wood. What would it be like to have a new dog in the village? He sat all day watching the movers carry furniture out of the truck and into the house. By late afternoon they were finished and the truck drove away.

Malcolm noticed an elderly man and woman standing on the veranda of the house. Next to them was a small white dog. It looked a lot like Malcolm, aside from the color. Malcolm wondered if there were white Scotty dogs. Feeling rather curious, he ran out through his doggie door into the back garden. He ran to the hedges dividing the properties and peeked through. It was a girl Scotty dog. Just then the man and woman spotted Malcolm. "Oh look, Duncan. It’s another Scotty dog," Janet Tait said. "Come over here and meet your new friend," she called to the white dog. "Come on Honey." Honey ran over and put her nose through the fence. Malcolm put his through too. "Oh how precious. They’ve made friends," she said. "Why don’t you come over here and play?" she asked Malcolm.

Just then Angus MacScot came outside and saw his new neighbors. He introduced himself and Malcolm. The Taits introduced themselves and Honey. As they talked, Malcolm showed Honey around his back garden. They then ran up the street and Honey met Fiona, Jock, and Paddy. Now they had a new friend to play with.

Malcolm and Honey spent a lot of time together. He was very happy that the Taits had moved in next door.
