THE JEWEL COLLAR

 

 

 

 

Once upon a time there was a beautiful
Maltese puppy named Aristotle. He was called Ari for short. Ari was
a Champion show dog but was happiest at home sitting in the garden
and playing with his garden friends.

 

 

 

 

Ari and his Mommy, Christy, lived in
California in a beautiful house at the beach overlooking the
Newport Harbor.

 

 

 

 

Ari had many friends in the beach house
garden. The Finches, Mr. & Mrs. Dove, Brandy the Squirrel,
Harry the Cat, Paul the Possum, Mickey the Mallard, the family of
Steve Sparrow and Heather the Hummingbird and her family.

 

 

 

 

Ari’s Mommy was a very successful trial
attorney who spent most of her time during the day at the
Courthouse, the law library and visiting clients at their
offices.

 

 

 

 

One day, shortly before Christmas, Ari’s
Mommy came home from work and told Ari that they would be moving
away from the beach to a new home.

 

 

 

 

Their new home would be close to the train
station so that Ari’s Mommy could take the train to Los Angeles for
Court hearings.
