Dilly the dancing dog
—————————

Dilly was a dancing dog. She danced in the morning, she danced in the evening and she always danced for fun.

But no-one knew she could dance.

She danced the polka, she danced the tango and her favorite was the waltz.

But no-one knew she could dance.

When her owners were out she put on dancing clothes and twirled about the lounge.

But no-one knew she could dance.

In her head she was a world famous dancer and came first in big competitions.

But still no one knew she could dance!

Until one day dancing a jig across the fireplace she saw a face at the window.

‘You can dance!’ the cat said.

‘Why yes i can,’ Dilly replied.

‘Would you like to meet others who can dance?’ The cat asked politely.

‘No thank you,’ said Dilly for she was happy to dance alone.

Later that day fox-trotting across the carpet she saw two faces at the window.

‘I told you,’ said one cat to the other.
‘A dancing dog, well i never,’ it replied.

‘Would you like to meet others who can dance?’ It asked politely.

‘No thank you,’ replied Dilly, ‘I like dancing alone.’

Dilly lay down on her favorite rug. ‘I like dancing with others,’ she thought to herself and fell fast asleep.
