Lightfoot and Dido stood looking at one another for a few seconds.

With a heart that beat hard and fast after his long run, Lightfoot, the goat, crouched down in a dark corner of the hold in the canal boat.“My!” thought poor Lightfoot as he curled up in as small a space as he could. “I got away from them just in time.

The park where Lightfoot, the leaping goat, had worked with Mike for several weeks, giving rides to children, was quite a large one. There were many paths in it, and driveways.
