The Woods- A story about a lost puppy Retelling & Summarizing Click to read the story The Woods Rudy was a shaggy little puppy who loved to play outside. His favorite part of the day was when his owners took him outside. Sometimes they would unclip his leash from his collar and Rudy would be free to run and play. When Rudy was inside his house he would stare out of the window wishing he could be free to go outside and play like so may of the other animals. Rudy longed to spend his days chasing squirrels and sniffing all the smells in the woods behind his house. One day Rudy got his chance. His owner left the backdoor open when she was bringing in the groceries. Without anyone noticing Rudy snuck out the open door. He went bounding down the back steps through the backyard and into the woods. There was so much to see, and Rudy had so much fun. He chased all the squirrels that caught his eye and stopped to sniff every new smell. After awhile Rudy had had enough exploring and was ready to go home. He trotted up a hill to where he remembered the path that was to lead him back to his house. When he got to the top of the hill he realized he was wrong and the path was not there; he was lost. Rudy became scared; he didn’t know how he was going to find his way home. Rudy panicked and ran back down the hill. He ran and ran until he was so tired he could not go any further. He lied down for a minute to rest and he must have drifted off to sleep. All of a sudden he awoke to a faint voice. “Could it be?” – No be must be dreaming, but then he heard it again. The faint voice was getting closer. “Rudy, Rudy, where are you?” Rudy jumped up and began to bark. It was his owners; they had come looking for him. Before he knew it there they were! Rudy was so excited to see them; he leapt into their arms and began licking their faces as they quickly clipped his leash onto his collar. He was never happier to be lead back home.
