My mama has not been following the routine the past few days – on Thursday, we got up and she did not go to Work, that was fun! We went for a long walk, and played Fetch in the yard, but then! In the middle of the day, she went away! She was gone for a long time, it got dark and she still did not come Home. Where did she go? Finally she came home, late late late, and I was so excited to see her that I could not wait at the top of the stairs like I am supposed to, I rushed down to say hello!

Then the next day, she got up and went to Work, which is normal, and she came home in the middle of the day which is also normal, but then she did not go back to Work! That was fun, we went for another long walk, and then we had a quiet afternoon, mama calls that “relaxing”.

Then the next day, we went to the groshamee Store like we always do, and then we went for another long walk, and then mama spent a lot of time moving things around and wiping the dirt off of them. I watched her, and I do not think she likes doing that, I wonder why she does it? But then! A super fun adventure, we went to Camp Freedom! I got to run run run, and play in the marsh – I took pictures, too. Then granpa made a Thanksgrilling feast! I got to have hammaburger AND cheese – very tasty!

I am thankful for days when mama gets to spend more time with me, and days when I get to spend time at Camp Freedom, but I also like the normal routine, too, because then I know exactly what is going to happen and when.


A Day at Camp Freedom

November 21, 2009

Today I got to spend the whole day at Camp Freedom – very fun! The adventure started right when I got to Camp Freedom, because! There was a gobbler chicken in Sector Two! I chased that gobbler chicken until he flew away into Sector Gone.

Then mama went Away, and I was worried for a little bit, but then! I got to go on TWO rides with grampa! He did not know that he is supposed to pet me while we ride in the car, so I reminded him. And I got to help him with Projects outside! We put a big piece of metal on a tractor thing, and then I followed him around while he did other things in the yard.

Then grampa went Away for a little while, and I played with gramma – I had to guard her from some people who were walking by very slowly, and talking with words that sounded different. Unauthorized! Keep moving!

Then in the afternoon grampa and I took a Nap, because we had been working hard all day. But then! Mama came back! I was so excited, I spun around in circles. I had fun playing at Camp Freedom all day, but I was glad to see mama again.


When Round Things Go Flat

November 15, 2009

When humans want to go somewhere that is farther than they can walk, they get into big metal wagons. The big metal wagons go very fast! I have figured out that they go so fast because they have four big black round things on the bottom that spin around and around. I think that if the four black round things were not there, or if they were flat, the big metals wagons would not go so fast.

That is what happened to us! Me and my human went for a Ride, and we went to some Stores, but then we got back on the fast road, another wagon pulled up next to us and said one of our round things was Flat! Not good! My human started to slow down, and then, BUMP BUMP BUMP! The wagon did not want to go anymore! So she went off to the side of the fast road, and then we were stopped. Why are we stopped? We are in the wagon, it is supposed to Go! Mama got out the little toy that lets her talk to people who aren’t there, and she called for Help. It’s a very good thing that humans have those little toys, so they can call for help when they need it! We waited for a while, and I wanted to get out, but we had to stay until Help came.

Then! A big truck came, bigger than I have ever seen! The man driving the truck was there to help us, and finally mama put on my leash and let me out. There was grass, and a fence, and I wanted to explore, but mama said I had to Sit, because there were many big metal wagons zooming by, and she did not want me to be Flat. The truck man attached some chains to our wagon, and then the truck made a big noise, and it pulled our wagon all the way up onto the back of the truck! The truck man said I could ride in the front with him and mama, but even a super high jumper like me could not jump that high! Mama had to lift me up into the truck, and then we went for another Ride. That was a fun Ride, though, because I was way up high and could see everything!

The truck took us to a Store where they sell the black round things, so mama could buy a new one that was round, and not flat. The people at that Store were very nice, and they let me come in! Except there were little humans there who kept trying to pet me on the head, even though my mama asked them not to, because I was too excited for petting. The people who sell the black round things said it would take a long time to put the new round things on, so mama got out the talker toy again, and then! In a little bit, Gramma came to rescue us! Yay, gramma!

We rested at Camp Freedom for a while, and then Gramma and Mama went away again, and came back with our wagon, with four brand new black round things on it. We were so happy, we celebrated by having chicken that granpa cooked for us! Yay, granpa! Now the big metal wagon can go fast again, yay!
