Blue was so tired, but he didn't know how to tell Red that all he wanted was to go home, after all it was him that had run away in the first place.
They had been having such a marvellous adventure, but it takes a lot out of a little dog, all this transforming, running and transforming again....He just looked at Red with big soulful eyes, pleading with the universe to let things go back to the way they had been.
Red looked at Blue and felt a twinge of guilt.
Ever since he had left the safety of her blue scarf he seemed to be in a constant state of anxiety....
"Maybe we should think about going home Blue" she said quietly, "or even settling down right here?"
"It is beautiful by the beach, guarded from the outside world by the blue mountains and the blue ocean..." joined in Blue
"..and the BLUE sky!" giggled Red
"... like being wrapped in your Blue scarf, but with room to breathe and run around" said Blue excitedly.
"oow! oow! oow!" continued Blue, his tail swishing frantically, "CAN we stay HERE?" he leapt up and down now fit to burst.
"YES!" shouted Red, as she ran happily towards Blue, arms outstretched. "And Purple can come visit us when he gets lonely!" she smiled as she caught Blue up in her arms.
"Oooow.....oooooow....aooooow!" howled Blue, licking her smiling face.
You see, once the dream of adventure had been fulfilled, Blue had returned to his true form....the loveable, and truly loved little dog belonging to the Girl with the Blue scarf.
"Thank you Blue" sighed Red, "I was tired and bored with my life, but you have inspired me. With your help, I am going to paint fabulous pictures of our adventures together and share them with anyone else who feels sad,lonely or just plain bored, so that they can have adventure in their lives too!"
And with that, they began collecting "stuff". Any stuff they could find, to build a home and fill it with art for the whole world to share.
