My name is Weezer. I'm a little, plump puppy with an incredible story I'd like to share with you. One day I was playing out in the yard when a bolt of lightning struck me. Suddenly I could count to ten, read and even talk. 'Wow, this is so cool!' I thought.

I could help Billy, my owner, with his homework and I even went to school with him and explained the law of gravity to the class during show-and-tell. Everyone was amazed by what I could do. I eventually took on more demanding tasks, such as predicting weather patterns, which helped avert natural disasters. I gave piano benefit concerts to assist the poor, helped doctors find cures for diseases, and sat down with world leaders to show them the way to Peace on Earth.

Things were going unbelievably well and I had accomplished so much when, during a storm one day, I was again hit by lightning. Did that make me even smarter? Not really! In fact, I almost died, and when I recovered, guess what? I was just a regular dog again! But even though I lost all my special abilities, the people of the world were better off because they didn't forget what I had taught them.

Now, that's a pretty neat story, isn't it? I think if you are a little person three years of age or older, you'll really like reading about me and you'll also have fun looking at the pictures that you'll find in my book. Maybe you can think of some special things you can do around your house to make life better for your family.
