Somebody has stolen some pumpkins and cabbages during the night. “Incredible!“ Spacy grumbles. “We need special guards!“ Sparky sighs. “Oh, I have an idea!“ Spacy says. “Let me do it!“

In the afternoon Sparky hears some strange noises in the garden. He goes outside. “Look, these are our new home sheriffs! Geese are the best guards in the world!“ Spacy says. A gaggle of five geese are now Sparky and Spacy‘s new feathered friends. During the night there is suddenly a big row outside.

“Let‘s see what happened!“ Sparky says. With widespread wings, craned necks and honking loudly the geese are driving out the vegetable thief. „He will never come back again!“ Spacy laughs. “Certainly not!“ Sparky answers.
