Patch and Scratch

spot1.jpgspot1.jpg

Patch and Scratch were two puppy dogs, whose fleas scratched so much, that they jumped up like frogs ! Pat was a dog who liked to be patted – he wagged his tail and his eyelids he batted. Scratch loved to have his ears scratched. When someone threw a ball … Scratch made sure it was always catched. “Woof !” Patch howled, “GRUFF !” Scratch growled, as the two of them fought over a bone. Soon, the pair were locked in battle. Scratch bit Patch and it made the bell on his collar rattle. Patch pinched Scratch’s bone and ran off – he could run faster than anyone.
