Mary walked over to the bus stop, where she found two sheep seemingly waiting for the bus, which Mary thought was strange.
“Excuse me,” Mary said to one of the sheep, “but I seemed to have lost my little lamb and I was wondering if you might have seen him.”
Much to her surprise, the sheep looked up at Mary and bleated, “He followed you to school today, but the teacher said that having a lamb at school was against the rules, so she sent the lamb away.”
“Oh no,” Mary exclaimed, “how will I ever find my little lamb?”
“You can stay here waiting at the bus stop with us,” the sheep said, “since this is the bus that takes us to the shearing house and your little lost lamb will most likely eventually show up.”
