The Dog & The Hen
The Dog and The Hen is Gordon’s third book and deals with the “Bullying” issue, and teaches that life can be a lot more fun for everyone if we treat each other kindly and live by The Golden Rule.
It tells of a small dog who is picked on and bullied because of his size and clumsiness, and often left out of the other “dog games”, to cry on his own. Then, along comes a little hen who befriends him, suddenly making his life a lot more fun.
It says that “Neither one seemed to be slightly aware, that one had Feathers and the other had Hair.” We are also told that “Everyone’s needs are always the same, regardless of Race, or Colour or Name.”
