CHRISTMAS MEATING by The Artful Scribbler aka Rick Haynes Larder quickly padded to the front door when he heard the familiar voices. These visitors were always welcome especially when they brought Dolly with them. She may be a small dog but cuddling up together in his large bed was warming on even the coldest of nights. And, when everyone retired upstairs, the fun could begin. Chase and Chew was the best game. Larder would grab one end of the bone and Dolly had to take it away.

It didn’t take too long for the words to flow but something nagged away inside my head. Eventually, it came to me. Why not write a piece of flash fiction together with pictures? A picture book if you like. Thus the idea was born and I am proud to present - Earn Your Stripes. But you know me. There is always a twist at the end. Enjoy!

The mighty elephants stood sentinel; the antelopes a
