  First Page

  I’ll teach my dog 100 words.

  The first six words

  I’ll teach my pup

  are …

  dig a hole!


  fill it up!

  I’ll teach him …


  and run,

  and then …

  catch a ball!

  Now that makes ten.

  And Mr. Smith,

  who lives next door,

  will say, “That’s great!

  Can you

  teach him more?”

  And then I’ll teach him …





  wag your tail


  shake a leg …


  wash your ears


  wash your toes!


  scratch your head


  blow your nose!

  Then Mr. Smith

  will tell

  Miss Brown,

  “This is

  the smartest

  dog in town!”

  I won’t stop there.

  No, not at all …

  I’ll teach him big,

  I’ll teach him small …

  and fat and thin

  and short and tall …

  and dark …

  and light …

  and day …

  and night.

  And then

  Miss Brown

  will call

  Miss May.

  “Come over

  right away,”

  she’ll say.

  “This dog

  is learning

  chase the cat


  climb the tree


  things like that!”

  Then we will give them more

  to see …

  eat your food

  and follow me.


  We’re up to


  I’ll teach him

  “The smartest dog we’ve ever seen!”

  I’ll teach him

  That makes forty-nine, I think.

  And then Miss May

  will call Mayor Meer.

  She’ll call,



  over here!”

  And then for Mr. Meer,

  the Mayor,

  I’ll teach my dog …

  now paint the chair!

  Paint the road from here

  to there.

  Paint Uncle Abner’s

  underwear …

  But have a care!

  Don’t paint the Mayor!

  Then Mr. Meer, the Mayor, will say,

  “I’ll make today a holiday!”

  And everyone will come to see

  my amazing dog and me.

  We’ll show

  them skate


  kick the stone!

  Jump the fishbowl!


  the bone!

  Chew the boot,

  and hold the phone!

  Cut the grass!

  Shine my shoe!

  Comb your hair!

  And clean the zoo!


  brush the bear!



  But that’s not all my dog will do.

  He’ll tickle the pig,

  and kiss the goose!

  He’ll feed the mouse,

  and mop the moose!


  toot a bugle …

  beat a drum.

  He’ll stand on

  Uncle Abner’s thumb.

  And then

  I’ll teach him

  sing with

  the birds.

  Now, THERE!

  That makes

  100 words.

  My dog will learn

  those hundred words—

  and how my friends will cheer!

  I’ll teach my dog

  those hundred words …

  … I think I’ll start next year.
