Even Tommy, the dog, would never forget that funny incident! (Story for the children)


Simon was hardly four years old. He was in the drawing room sitting on the sofa and watching some cartoon pictures on the television. His mother was in the kitchen preparing the breakfast and father was in the bathroom. Tommy, their dog, was lying on the carpet with his eyes half open and he looked very sleepy. Simon guessed that Tommy didn’t have a good sleep last night. He told him a story and was glad to see that he closed his eyes and soon he could hear him snoring.

It was winter and a very sunny Sunday morning. Simon wanted to do something exciting. Some idea came in his mind. He tiptoed outside the bathroom and was glad to hear his father singing away and he could make out that he was enjoying the shower. Then he stood quietly outside the kitchen and quickly peeped inside to see that his mother was busy making some special preparation for the breakfast.


Simon returned to the drawing room and noticed that Tommy was fast asleep. He stopped for a minute , picked up his dad’s shoes from the shoe rack, put them on , took a small bag from the table and then went outside and gently closed the door.

But Tommy woke up, he must have heard some sound ! He came to the door and wondered where could Simon go and that too all alone! He looked outside through the window and was surprised to see Simon on the street walking with his father’s shoes on! Tommy became worried, he started to bark as loudly as possible.


‘Can you see Simon what’s the matter?’ His mother shouted from kitchen. She shouted again ' Where are you Simon, can you hear me?' As no response was received from Simon and that Tommy continued barking she came out from the kitchen. His father also came out from the bathroom in a hurry. He was all wet and had the towel on only.

They came near the window to see what Tommy was watching and couldn't believe their eyes - their little son was on the road !

Opening the door his father ran after Simon with the towel on and asked him to stop. Simon looked back and tried to run but he couldn’t with those big pair of shoes. And there was Tommy who already reached the spot and tried to stop Simon to proceed any further. People gathered on the street and they laughed to see the sight. He was brought home with Tommy following them.

‘Where on earth were you going ?’ His mother asked.

‘I was going to dad’s office.’ Simon replied innocently.

‘But why?’

‘To work there mum!’

They laughed their heads off . There was more laughter in store for them as they found his dad’s pen and spectacles in the little bag which he had in his hand.

‘ I couldn't go to office and It’s all because of Tommy!’ said Simon angrily.

His father laughed and then said ‘Don’t say like that, do you know he has saved your life. Accidents could have happened. Why did you go out alone? For God’s sake don’t do this again – O.K. ?’


Simon realized that what he did was wrong. He said Sorry to his parents.

Also he said sorry to Tommy and gave him a kiss.


Simon is twelve years old now. He recalls the incident very clearly and whenever there is a discussion on this with his parents Tommy listens and looks at them in a way as if he wants to say that the incident was really very funny which he would never forget.

This was an excellent story Kamalesh. Dogs are usually protective of little ones.

I used to have a german shepherd and when my son got close to the gate the dogs would grab hold of the seat of his pants and pull him back. Lol

Well written, loved the photo and enjoyed your story

This is a very cute story! I can just see the little boy walking down the street in his daddy's big shoes and holding his briefcase. Thank goodness the dog woke up! This is a good story for children as it is funny but also teaches them a lesson! :)

Hi Kamalesh,

I really enjoyed your story. Tommy reminds me of my sister's dog. When I visit he always goes upstairs with me when I have to use the bathroom. One time he was sleeping and I tried sneaking up the stairs but he woke up right away.

Voted up across the board

Best Wishes, Sue

Hi Sue, so nice to see you! I am delighted that you have enjoyed the story. It is so funny to note what you have written about your sister's dog. Years ago I used to have a dog who also used to behave the same way! They are really so cute and intelligent - aren't they? Thank you Sue for sparing time to read and comment and also for the vote! Have a nice day !

Best Wishes, Kamalesh
