Tuessdays with Gindy: Shep and Comrade

Comrade was a little gray squirrel with a big fluffy tail.  He was really proud of his name because his mommy told him it meant “friend.”

Comrade lived in a big oak tree on Circle Drive. In his backyard was a doghouse for his friend Shep.

Shep was a black dog who loved to play with Comrade. She even let Comrade keep some of his acorns hidden under her doghouse.

One day, Comrade decided to go on an adventure.  He decided to go over to the yard next door and gather pecans. There wasn’t a pecan tree in his yard so, if he wanted pecans, he had to go next door to get them.

He could taste the pecan pie his mommy would make out of the pecans. The problem was there was a big yellow cat that lived next door.  The cat did not want anyone coming into his yard.  He had told Comrade before that if he caught him in his yard, he would make him into a stew.

Comrade looked down from his tree and did not see the cat anywhere, so he started out towards the pecan tree.

He carried a little blue bucket with him to put the pecans in as he collected them.   He scampered quickly along the ground and made it safely to the grass up under the pecan tree.

He began putting the pecans in his bucket and, from time to time, looked around to see if the cat was anywhere nearby.  He had his bucket almost full when he heard something.

It was very quiet, but he was sure he had heard something. He was putting the last pecan in the bucket when, all of a sudden, he saw the shadow of the cat moving quickly behind him.

He grabbed his bucket and started to run.  He was almost to his yard when suddenly a net plopped down on top of him. He fought and he fought, but he couldn’t get free.

The cat was laughing at him and teasing him.  The cat said. “You will make a tasty stew, Comrade.” 

Comrade was starting to cry when he noticed the net was being lifted off of him.  He turned around and, to his surprise, there was Shep. She had lifted the net off of him and was there to save him.  She told him to run for her dog house.

As Comrade started to run, the cat noticed that he had escaped and so he began to chase Comrade.

Just as the cat was about to catch Comrade, Shep dropped the net over the cat and Comrade darted to safety.

Comrade took the pecans to his mommy and there was enough to make five pecan pies. That night, Comrade took a piece of the pie to Shep to say thank you.

Shep and Comrade both enjoyed a piece of pie as they watched the moon come up. “Thank you for helping me out,” said Comrade. “That’s what friends are for,” Shep said and they both fell asleep.

    1. Shep let it go with a stern warning. Later, she brought the cat some pie.

  2. I've always thought this was such a sweet story. :)
    I love you, my Zing.
