When I went to the lake…

When I went to the lake I took a lot of walks, and I went to the store, and I saw the lake.  I stayed in a cabin.  I think it was very comfortable.

I know how to be at home wherever I go.  Do you?

When I am tired, I know how to rest.  Do you?

Some days, I worked so hard I was exhausted!  This is a picture of me, after working very hard.

Some of my jobs are:

1)  being friendly,

2)  sniffing everything to make sure it is safe,

3) being friendly,

4) making sure Mom and Dad aren’t bored by doing something funny,

5) being friendly,

6) misbehaving so Mom and Dad have something to do.

My Vacation

I got to go on vacation with Mom and Dad!  I got to ride in the car!  I got to see a lake (I only went in a little).  I got to meet two dog friends!  I got to go on a lot of walks and I saw a funny round and hard animal that had soft parts that kept popping in and out.  It was very exciting!  I liked our house, and I liked our lake, and I liked sitting in the sun with Mom and Dad.  And I liked that they took my picture, too!  I am very tired today.

I like hanging out with Mom and Dad all day.  I like it when they don’t go away to wherever they go (I think Mom , goes to the big place where I got blessed sometimes.)  I like taking walks with them and hearing all the sounds (birds, wind, water) and smelling all the smells (animals, grass, flowers, weeds, people, air).  I hope I get to go again.

I don’t think I would like to go in a boat.  They are all shaky and I am not sure about that.  Also, I don’t like those long thin things people carry around.  They look like weapons.  However, I think I would like fish.  Mmm-mmm, they look good.

I think it’s good to be willing to go new places and at least try some new things, don’t you?  I wonder where we will go next!

I never worry when it’s time to go in the car.  I know they will take me to a good place.  I only worry before we leave, that maybe this time, I will not get to go along.  Being left behind is the worst thing, worse even than going to the veterinarian. 

Here’s What Happened

My people took their suitcases and closed the door and LEFT ME.  All by myself.  I was not very happy.

 Then, a few minutes later the Nice Older Lady I Am Not Supposed To Jump On came over.  It was Very Exciting!

And then, something even more exciting happened!  The Woman Who Speaks Dog came over, too!  I was So Excited that when she opened the front door, I ran out!

I ran up and down the street for a few minutes.  Did someone call me?  I don’t know!  I didn’t hear anything!

Then, the Woman Who Speaks Dog backed her car into the street and opened the back hatch.  I jumped right in!  I will go anywhere with her!  She Speaks Dog!

That’s what happened.

I’m safe now.  I’ve been playing with a dog called Pink, who looks a lot like me.

See you later!

I hope you are having as much fun as I am!

Love,

Scout

I think they’re leaving

I’m getting a little suspicious.  There are suitcases all over the floor, and they are ironing (something they hardly ever do) and Diane is making extra rice and hamburger (smells delicious!).

 It’s a little depressing.  On the one hand, I get to meet new friends and play when they are gone.  On the other hand, why do they leave me?  Why do they take me away from my house and my bed and my toys and my front window that looks out into my street?  Why? why? why?

I just want to be with them.

Please pray for me.

Also for Diane.  I see she is putting a picture of me into her suitcase.

I wonder what she does all day without me?  After all, I am the best part of her day.
