Lemon Dog’s Lucky Day Part 1
There is a dog. This dog loves to eat anything with lemons. As a matter of fact he only eats food that is made from lemons. His mother is a bulldog and she raised him vegetarian. His father is a sheepdog. He is supposed to protect the sheep but instead he eats them. He is nutty as a fruitcake!
It turns out that when Lemon Dog was a puppy he only ate food made from pumpkin. His favorite was vegan cream of pumpkin popsicles. As far as making the popsicles vegan, his mother made them with soy milk.
Lemon Dog wants to throw a party. He decides to stick with making everything from lemons. He really wants to make lemon soup, lemon sandwiches, lemon salad, lemon cake, and lemon pie. He needs to buy 36,000 lemons to feed his friends. He knows that they will love his party as long as all the food is made from lemons!
