A dog who wishes to be a mouse can still live part of it's dream 

For her birthday, Mary Jane the dog asked her friends for a mask 

"be it pretty and feminine, graceful, unlike me." Her friends took note and they all had tea. 

On her birthday she was up with the first song of the birds, with pretty little boots on three of her paws and her birthday dress on from her dear Mum. 

In came her friends carrying a parcel wrapped in news paper, 

what ever could it be? 

The prettiest mouse mask Mary Jane could have imagined, "what a wonderful birthday!" Cried she. 

And so from then on, every afternoon was spent with the mouse mask covering the little dog's face, she danced in front of the mirror all day, until one afternoon in the month of May, in walked a cat with a blue straw hat 

"oh me oh my, a sweet little mouse!" The cat purred with delight, it just so happens this very cat had a rather large appetite. 

Mary Jane was too busy being a mouse to notice the fat cat behind her, when she spun around and saw the sight she let out a sound of a bark and a squeak intwined as one, and the fat cat swallowed her whole.

Well done! I shall take care next time I'm required to take the form of a dog in my animal kingdom

Poor, Mary Jane. What a sudden end, and none of it would have happened had she not been so busy pretending. Enjoyed the story.

Very imaginative. Read Alice in Wonderland. Think you'd like it.
