“Mommy,” said Bodoggy, “why do you walk me to school every day?”
Bodoggy’s mother thought for a moment. “Well, sweetie, we live just over the hill, so it's not too far to walk.”
“But, mommy, other puppies ride the bus.”
“Yes, I know Bodoggy, but you're special because you get to walk to school.”
“You said that I will ride home in a car today.”
“That’s right sweetheart, today is a special day.”
“Why is it so special mommy?”
“Well, it’s a sort of secret, but a surprise just for you.”
Bodoggy danced while holding on to his mother’s paw. “Mommy, I love surprises. Tell me now.”
“Oh, Bodoggy, if I told you now it wouldn’t be a surprise.”
“Please, mommy, please. Won’t you tell me?”
His mother laughed at her son’s question. “Oh, sweetie, you'll get your surprise after school, I promise.
When he and his mother arrived at the school building his mother walked clear to his room and talked to his teacher. He didn’t hear what she said, because Bodoggy was busy taking his seat and chatting with the other puppies.
All day long he wondered about his surprise. It wasn’t his birthday and it wasn’t a holiday, in fact it wasn’t any special day at all. Finally, the school bell rang and Bodoggy stood to leave, but the teacher asked him to stay.
Bodoggy was confused. The only other time he had to stay after school was when he pulled Sweetpuppy’s hair. That was not a fun day at all.
After all the puppies left the room the teacher called Bodoggy to the front. “Your mother told me about your big surprise today. Are you ready?”
Bodoggy shook with excitement. He thought, even the teacher knows about my surprise. “Yes ma’am. I am ready,” he giggled and yelped.
The teacher winked at someone behind Bodoggy. “Then turn around because there’s someone here to see you,” she said.
He did exactly as the teacher asked. And, there standing in the doorway was Popdoggy, Bodoggy’s father. Popdoggy was dressed in his full Army uniform, because he had just returned from a land far away.
Bodoggy ran to his father and jumped into Popdoggy’s outreached paws. “Oh, Popdoggy, I have missed you so. This is the greatest surprise of all and a very special day.”
