The "doptid" Dog
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 "Mark, what does 'doptid' mean?" Ricky asked his brother.
2 "I do not think that is a word. What word did you say?"
3 "Doptid. Mary has a new puppy. He is a white and black doptid dog. He is cute. I want one, too."
4 "I don't know, Ricky. Now I am busy. Go ask David. Maybe he knows."
5 Ricky found his other brother. He was doing homework.
6 "David, Mary has a white doptid dog. He has black spots. Can I have a black and white doptid dog, too?"
7 "Stop being silly, Ricky. There is no such thing as a doptid dog. What kind of word is that, anyway?"
8 "I am not being silly," Ricky said.
9 "Well, go ask Dad. Maybe he knows what ‘doptid' means."
