Jerico and Garret were walking with their kitty and doggy at a pretty lake.  They liked the pretty lake.

Jericho’s doggy and Garret’s kitty wanted to go in the lake.

page 1

Jerico and Garret had to get in the pretty lake with their clothes on! They played in the lake with their doggy and kitty and accidentally pooed!!

page 2

When Jericho and Garret saw that they had pooed, they got out of the lake and accidentally peed and pooed again!

They grabbed their markers when they got home and drawed a picture of their poo.

Jerico and Garret went to the store and got super cool NEW RED SHOES!
