Dogs just wanna have fun.
My favoritest games are “Chase me,” “Catch me,” and “Watch me.” This morning Mommy said she was going to the store but myself shouldn’t worry ‘cause she would come back to me. When she did, I was so happy I danced and pranced and skipped all around her before my paws ran me to my bed where I squeeled for her to come and pet me. Sometimes myself licks her hand when she pats my back but today I wanted to play “Watch me” so when she got close, I jumped off the pillow and ran me in a big circle around the room. As I hopped back on my bed and Mommy reached for me, I took off running again. When I went back to her and she tried once more to pet me, I zoomed past her and ran through the whole house with my ears flying behind me and my paws moving so fast they almost didn’t touch the floor. When I got back to her, I threw myself on my bed, rolled onto my back and stretched my paws out toward her. I tilted my head sideways and looked at her. When her eyes saw theTurbo love in mine, she put her face next to me and, all soft-like, rubbed my tummy all over. Mommy is my most bestest playmate.
