Dot, a Dalmatian puppy, lived in a house on a large grassy hill. Little Dot was spotless and white as snow. Little Dot was worried because she looked different from the rest of the family. She wanted to grow up so that her own set of spots would come. Her father reassured her that she would get her spots just like her brothers and sisters but that she would still be loved even if she did not have spots. He told her it was not the spots that counted but to be proud of who she was. Dot was determined and stubborn and she decided she would get her spots one way or the other. She snooped around the house when her mama and papa went into the kitchen to eat and found a paint set. Mama found Dot covered in different colored spots but all the spots disappeared after a bath. Would Dot finally able to get her spots?
