的配偶 Bud 去年過世了。

Blossom went to an office near the pond. She went many times. She looked at

She saw a goose in the windows. Was it Bud? No, it wasn't. Blossom was
looking at...Blossom.

Blossom was sad without Bud. She was lonely.
Blossom 常常去附近一間辦公室的門口,看著窗戶反射的自己。沒有 Bud , Blossom

Dorie worked in the office. She saw Blossom at the windows. Then Dorie had an
idea. She sent a letter to a newspaper. The letter said Blossom wanted a new
mate. 在辦公室工作的 Dorie 看到了 Blossom ,然後寄了一封信給報社,說 Blossom
想要一個新配偶。

Two people read about Blossom in the newspaper. They had a pet named Frankie.
Frankie was lonely. His mate was dead. And... he was a goose!
有兩個人在報紙上讀到 Blossom 的故事。他們有一隻叫做 Frankie
的鵝,他的配偶也過世了。

Now Blossom and Frankie are mates. They go to the pond together. 現在 Blossom
