Joey Gets Blown Away

Upon reaching the field where Joey resided, Chief Moonbeam found the rodents there difficult to catch for his having run so far already. He had just managed to find a slow, fat lemming when it made a dash through the straw walls of Joey's house and into his livingroom.

"Well this is senseless," thought the wolf, "I'm not going to bother trying to find another lemming when I want to get home to my pups." So, he stepped up to the door of the house and knocked.

Joey was a bit slow to drag himself away from playing on a MUD. In that time Chief Moonbeam had every opportunity to inhale the musty straw. His nose tickled and twitched at the scent, so when Joey got to the door and peered out through the peep hole, all he could see was the wolf's enormous mouth as he was inhaling for a gigantic sneeze.

Thus, Joey's house of straw was blown away. Joey of course was certain that the wolf meant to eat him, so he scampered away. In the meantime Chief Moonbeam snatched the lemming from behind the couch with the broken springs and loped after Joey to apologise.
