Bridget found some dog biscuits in the shed. It tasted salty and sweet, and so she ate it. But when her babysitter, Mrs. Blair told her that eating dog biscuits would turn her into a dog, Bridget began to worry. She felt her ear itch and her tail wag. She loved the sausages at the butcher shop and acted like a wild puppy at bedtime. That night, Bridget had a dream that she had turned into a dog and played with all the other dogs. She thought about her family and howled at the moon. Her mother came into her room and assured her that she was not turning into a dog, and that Mrs. Blair had been teasing. The next morning they went back to Mrs. Blair’s house where they laughed and ate human biscuits instead.
