Long ago, three dogs named lola, max, and shana lived in a valley and are very poor. Max was the smartest dog, lola was the fastest dog and shana was the courages dog. They got bored and they started to brag about each other. A few moments later a genie popped out of nowhere. He said ŠŠ you have 3 wishesĂĂ the dogs were pleased.
They started arguing about who should get the wishes. ˘how about you do a competition÷ said genie.÷ya÷ said the dogs. The first competition was speed. ˘go÷ yelled genie.They were off! Speeding through the valley, ther was no chance catching lola now. Lola crossed the finish line. ˘lola won!÷said genie.The next competition is smartness, genie put a bowl of beef jerkey in a bush and genie yelled ˘go!÷ The dogs were sniffing ther way off. The dogs looked every were but did not find the food except for max.÷mmmm! beef jerkey÷ said max, max got the food and gave it to genie. ˘ the winner is max÷ yelled genie. The next compitition was courage. Genie poofed them to a dark and scary room with goblins and scary ghosts. Genie closed the door and yelled ˘go!÷. The ghosts were screaming and touching them, ˘YEEEE!!!÷ yelled max. ˘YELP!!÷ screamed lola, they both ran out the door. Shana was still there! Genie said ˘shana wins!÷ All the dogs said ˘Who won!÷Genie was puzzled. ˘I should win because im fast÷ said lola. ˘no I should win because im smart÷ sad max. ˘ no I should win because I have courage÷ said shana. ˘HOLD IT!÷ yelled genie. ˘YouĂre all the same, maybe you should split the wishes, like max gets one, lola gets one and shana gets one÷. ˘ya lets do that÷ said the dogs. They all agreed to do that and they all wished for a home.
