Here's a little tale for the bedtime stories.  Comments, anyone?

The Runner That Saved A Village


Once upon a time, very long ago, there was a little village nestled by the foothills of the Southern Rim, called Onved.  And in that town there was a family, that bred hunting dogs.
It happened one day that a pup was born, the smallest of the litter, and what a sight was he! Short stubby legs, thick heavy head, fluffy white fur and a short little tail.   And they would have killed the runt if not for the pleading of the youngest daughter of the house, a tender-hearted child of just eight years.  Thus it was that the pup lived, and the girl called him Scrap.
And it came about that a plague of rats descended on the village, during harvest-time, when Scrap had reached just three years..  They attacked the granaries and ate the grain.  They stole into people’s houses, spoiled food and savaged helpless babes.  But in the house where Scrap dwelt, the rats that crept in never left, but were found dead on the doorstep every morning.  And Scrap’s mistress saw this and took the dog out, that he might chase away the rats.  And within seven days the valiant Scrap had destroyed all the vermin in the village and saved the harvest.  The villagers rejoiced and sang the praises of the little dog and offered the family much gold for him.  But his mistress would not hear of it.  “Nay," said she, "but we will breed the dog, and you may bespeak a pup." And she took a live vixen shir from a hunter's trap and bred the two.  All the offspring had  both the cunning of their dam and the good nature of their sire, and they were called Rimrunners.
And thus came about the Rimrunner Terrier, the bright, gentle and valiant- hearted little dog that we know today.

A legend from the town of Onved, on the origins of  the Rimrunner Terrier.  Researched by Alysse the Likely.

*haha* A lovely little tale indeed about our little friend, Alysse! I guess this is just fine for a bed time story for little children, especially those who have a Rimmer around in the house:)  - Will be added to entry next update and to a bed time stories book once we have one in the Library!

Thank you, Art and Talia!

I will be editing it a little yet for stylistic inconsistency, but there is time before the next update, yes?  I'll try to get to it this week-end.

Oh, and if you could write just a short summary/teaser in this thread to prepare it for a Library book that would make things perfect;)
