Short Story - Beg Your Pardon Mrs Hardin
One afternoon, a little boy had lost his kitten. He looked under his bed. He looked all over his house. But still there was no puppy. Finally, he looked for his puppy in the garden. After a few hours, he still could not find the puppy.
The little boy was tired and was about to give up. Then he saw his neighbour, Mrs Hardin.
“I beg your pardon, Mrs Hardin. Is my puppy in your garden?” asked the little boy.
“Oh yes, she is. She is chewing on a mutton bone,” replied Mrs Hardin.
The little boy climbed the fence and saw his puppy chewing on a mutton bone. He was so happy that his puppy was not lost but had only gone to his good neighbor’s house to eat.
Moral of the story : Do not give up searching for something you have lost too soon.
