Children's Story Billy and Bella Part 2
I'm Billy and I love to explore in Old Ma Cooper's garden.
I'm not sure why but I always seem to get myself in a little bit of a pickle and I am always in trouble with mum and dad!
Luckily though my sister Bella always watches out for me!
And sometimes Chi the cat next door warns me if dad or mum are on there way!
Don't forget Billy, dad said you must stop digging up Old Ma Cooper's garden!
It's me Bella again!
It's beautiful Bella here, ready to take on whatever mission Billy brings my way!
He had better be a good little puppy today because dad is still cross with him for digging up Old Ma Cooper's garden!
He did look funny with the flower pot stuck on his nose though!
I wonder if Chi will help me today with Billy, he always tells me if Billy is up to no good!
If he wants treats today he had better behave!
Meow... Hello Children, yes I am here
Chi is the name, and I am here to tell tales!
You may think that I am not a good pussy cat but Bella needs my help when Billy is around!
I can hear him as soon as he comes into Old Ma Cooper's garden!
This is me.... Chi....
It looks like Old Ma Cooper is working in the garden today, said Mum. Do you think you could be a good little puppy today Billy and would you like to go in the
Oh yes please mummy, I would love to go in the garden today, please, please.
I will be a good puppy today, I promise not to dig up Old Ma Cooper's garden today he said.
If I find you digging up Old Ma Cooper garden Billy you will be in big trouble, do you understand, said Dad?
Dad was getting particularly cross with Billy and his antics and new that he would need to keep a very close eye on Billy today.
He asked Bella if she too could keep a close eye on Billy too.
Yes dad I will keep a close eye on Billy, I will ask Chi to help me.
Bella went into the garden first and called Chi the Cat next door. Chi, Chi are you coming out today?
Chi, Chi, are you coming out today. I need your help to keep an eye on Billy.
Chi, Chi...... she called.
Hello Bella, how are you this fine beautiful day
Did Billy get into trouble yesterday when he dug up old Ma Cooper's garden he asked?
Yes he did said Bella, Dad would not let him have any biscuits and he had to be quiet said Bella.
Chi sat on the fence looking down at Bella and asked her when Billy would be coming out to play.
Bella called Billy.
Billy, Billy are you coming out, she said.
Billy came running out of the door not looking where he was going and fell flat on his little puppy chin!
Oh Billy said Bella, slow down, now you have hurt your little chin. Bella ran towards Billy and licked his chin fondly.
Billy shook himself off and sat himself up saying wasn't me, I didn't trip, I'm fine!
Oh Billy said Bella when will you ever learn.
Hi Chi, said Billy moving slowly towards Old Ma Cooper who was busy in the garden.
Hello Billy, are you going to be a good boring little puppy today or are you going to have some fun!
Bella turned round and looked at Chi and said you mustn't encourage him Chi he will get into trouble again!
Billy looked around to see where mum and dad were, mum was asleep on the patio and dad had his beady eye on him! Billy thought he had better be good whilst he
Mum and Dad were happy that Bella and Chi were keeping an eye on Billy and Mum thought she could have a little nap whilst the puppies were talking to Chi.
Dad however thought he had better keep his eye on Billy for a little longer as he knew very well that Billy could get into trouble without even trying!
Old Ma Cooper looked up to see Billy at her feet and bent down to pick Billy up into her arms putting the ball of string that she had in her hand down on the gr
Billy loved it when Old Ma Cooper picked him up for a big cuddle.
Old Ma Cooper said to Billy, look at you Billy you are growing into a handsome little puppy, and smoothed and cuddled him fondly.
With that Bella moved towards Old Ma Cooper and Billy as she also likes to have a big cuddle with her.
Old Ma Cooper gave them both a cuddle and then told them that it was time for her to take a break and go and have a cuppa, she put Billy down beside his sister Bella and went in doors to put the kettle on.
Both puppies sat looking at her lovingly as she walked away and the ball of string was still at Billy's side.........
Billy looked at Bella and said I love Old Ma Cooper she gives me such a lovely cuddle, don't you Bella?
Bella looked at Billy and agreed she gives such a lovely cuddle!
Meanwhile Chi the cat is now lying on the fence getting extremely bored with the happenings of the day so far.
He happens to notice the ball of string that has been left at the side of Billy........
Chi, jumped down from the fence into Old Ma Cooper's garden and started to roll around in a mischievous way and said to Billy..........
Hey Billy what is that by the side of you, what is that?
Billy looked down at his side and moved his head from side to side not knowing what it was!
He continued to look at the ball of string wondering what on earth it was!
He looked at Bella and Bella looked at him........
What's the matter Billy said Bella?
There is something next to me Bella and I don't know what it is, he jumped away from the object scaring Bella out of her skin!
What is the matter Billy!
Bella then saw the object and looked at it curiously...
What is is Billy said Bella?
Now, whilst this was happening dad, Harley had given up watching the puppies and had fallen asleep!
Dad, could see no reason to watch the puppies as they were behaving at that time.
Now Bella, being Bella was not scared of anything, and lifted her paw to tap the object
The ball of string tipped slightly but not enough to look like it could be alive.
Billy watched his sister in awe.....
Bella touched the ball of string again but slightly harder this time and without any warning there was an all mighty CRASH!
What do you think Bella had done?
Mum and Dad woke instantly and saw what had happened, Chi jumped up onto the fence and looked down.......
The puppies Billy and Bella were nowhere to be seen.
Now Old Ma Cooper had just about finished her cuppa and had heard the almighty bang and was heading out into the garden.
What she saw she could not believe!
She held her hands up to her mouth in total surprise at the sight that was in front of her.
Bella had pulled the string and the string was attached to Old Ma Cooper's tomato plants!
You see, Old Ma Cooper had been tying the string around her tomato plants as they were laden with tomatoes and very heavy for the poles to hold up, she had not cut the string as she was otherwise occupied when she put the string down busily cuddling Billy and Bella!
Old Ma Cooper slowly lowered her hands from her face and gasped, Oh My Lord what on earth has been going on!
She looked around and could see no puppies, no mum or dad and no Chi!
Right, she said, where are you?
Harley, Missy, Billy, Bella COME HERE!
Very slowly the dogs and the puppies headed towards Old Ma Cooper!
Look at this awful mess you have made! You naughty puppies!
Why were you not watching them Harley and Missy she said as she looked at the dogs with a cross face.
Harley and Missy laid down knowing full well they were in big trouble.
And you two, said Old Ma Cooper your bad puppies.
Oh dear, I don't think Old Ma Cooper is going to let them off this time do you?
What do you think, do you think Old Ma Cooper will go all soft and let them off due to the dogs and puppies cute, loving looks?
Chi meanwhile had appeared back on the lawn and was splitting his sides with laughter!!!
Oh that was fun he said to Harley, Missy, Billy and Bella.
With that Harley jumped up very cross and barked at Chi chasing him out of the garden.
It is your fault for encouraging the puppies, Harley said.
Bella then looked at her dad and said he was absolutely right it was Chi's fault dad, he told Billy the string was there and Billy was scared so I touched it and ............ it was my fault the plants fell over! Bella looked and felt very sad that she had got them all into trouble.
Now, Old Ma Cooper being Old Ma Cooper looked at Harley, Missy, Billy and Bella and took a deep breathe!
Oh dear, she said.
We had better clean this mess up before Old Pa Cooper gets home, if he see's the mess you will be in trouble!
She patted them all one at a time on the head and told them not to worry, it was her thought she should have put the ball of string away behind her and not let the puppies distract her with their beautiful little faces!
Old Ma Cooper cleaned away the mess, nodding her head in disbelief whilst she was doing it!
Once she had finished clearing away, she looked at the dogs and puppies and smiled, she then said something which Bella and Billy did not quite understand as they had got themselves in such a pickle again.
I think it must be time for a chew!
Old Ma Cooper gave them all a chew to show them that they were no longer in trouble!
And Chi, where was Chi...
Chi was nowhere to be seen.....
This video is Montaug and he is another little friend of Billy and Bella's
I hope you enjoyed the story, I wonder what Bella and Billy will get up to next!
I know they have a friend that is a hamster and he is called Hulk the Hamster perhaps he will be in the next story! Will see.....
