It was early one
Saturday morning, around 6:00 a.m.. All the animals on the McFly's Farm
were sound asleep. Just a few minutes past 6:00, the sun began to rise,
and Mr. Rooster began his daily cock-a-doodle-dooing. Of course, once
the other animals heard Mr. Rooster they slowly got up and began to
"Oh my aching back," cried Betsy the cow, "It's
terrible getting old. " Miss Piggy squeels, " Betsy, do you have to
remind us every morning about how bad it is to get old?" Miss
Piggy was obviously not a morning person. "Well, escuse me," Betsy
politely said. While the two were babbling back and forth, Lilly the
lamb notices Mr. McFly hooking the trailer up to his truck. Around the
McFly's Farm, this only meant one thing, someone was about to go to a
new home, if you know what I mean." Look," whispered Lilly, "Who do you
think is leaving this time?" All the animals, including the horse,
rabbit, Betsy, Mr. Rooster and Lilly, were hoping that it would be Miss
Piggy to leave. But for some odd reason, Mr. McFly drove off into the
"Well isn't that just ridiculous," yelled Miss
Piggy, "what, we don't get breakfast before he leaves?" Mr. Rooster
thought to himself, "Miss Piggy could miss a few meals and it wouldn't
hurt her." A few minutes later, Mrs. McFly went down to the barn and
fed all the animals breakfast. After breakfast, they quietly walked
around, nibbling on some grass here and there. They were all thinking,
"what in the world is going on?"
A few hours went by. Betsy was lying under a tree
taking a nap, Miss Piggy was buried in the mud sound asleep, and Lilly
was in the barn, curled up next to the horse. All of a sudden, they
heard Mr. McFly's truck coming down the drive way. The animals jumped
up and huddled up together. Their hearts were about to beat out of
their chests. "Who is it, Who is it, Who is it?" wondered Betsy.
"Please don't let it be me," cried Lilly.
Mr. McFly parked his truck next to the barn. He
walked around to the back of the trailer and opened the door. He walked
inside to get something. A few minutes later he walked out of the
trailer with a baby goat. Oh how the animals jumped with excitement.
They were excited for two reasons: 1.No one was leaving and 2. They had
a new friend on the farm.
"Isn't he adorable," shouted Lilly with excitement.
"Oh, I just want to pinch his cheeks," Betsy said. Finally Miss Piggie
squeeled, " I actually think that I might like this little guy." The
animals were shocked, Miss Piggy actually said something nice.
Mr. McFly showed the little goat around and then let
him loose to play with the animals. He was scared at first, but
eventually he warmed up. All the animals welcomed little goat and
treated him like family. From here on out, the animals were best friend
with eachother, including Miss Piggy.
