Horace the dog was very proud if his appearance. Half his fur was grey and half was black. He thought it made him look very distinguished. He went to se his mother once a week, but she didn't like his grey hair. She thought they made him look too old, so every week she pulled a few out. He went to see his sister as well, but she didn't like black hair, because she thought they made him look bad-tempered. Every week she pulled a few out. The end of it was that poor old Horace became the first bald dog. His mother had to knit him a coat to keep him warm.
