season has begun. What is a season?
She said I will have to quit barking
every time the buzzer goes off when someone comes in the store. I thought I
was supposed to bark. Isn't that my job? Someone comes to the door and the
dog barks, right? It is what we do, we are helping. We are letting our
people know that something out of the ordinary is happening. So, I
guess she wants me to not do my job. Another rule to learn.
Oscar said to just chill out, cause pretty soon that buzzer will be going all
day long and if we bark at it every time we will lose our voices. I have
never lost my voice, does it hurt? Have you ever lost your voice, Gavin?
I would not like it if you couldn't call my name. See all those big trailers in
the picture? Gramma calls them rigs; she'll say, "Jump down out of my lap,
I see a rig pulling in." Then she will go in the store and the buzzer will go off
and I will bark and she will say "Excuse me, please" to the people in the
store and then she will call my name and say, "I said no more barking!" Then
I will feel kind of dumb because I forgot about not barking again.
Today when it happened again I was going to lay down in Emmy's bed.
Gramma made a special cover for Emmy's pillow. It is really soft like your
blanket and it has these knots tied all the way around it. I was playing with one
knot and it was really fun to untie it. I don't know how it happened, but I kind
of untied all the knots...... again. Emmy was mad at me. She said I ruined her
bed. I tried to tie it all back, but I couldn't. Gramma wasn't too happy about it.
She said it takes thumbs to tie and that I don't have any---how come I don't?
Papa took us out to run! I ran and ran! It was so much fun. I can run faster than
Oscar! He didn't like that, but I can get the ball faster than he can. Emmy is real
fast. Some times she grabs Oscar's neck with her teeth and holds on while he is
running. Papa said that we would sleep better after we ran. I found a stick I liked
and Gramma said I could bring it in the house. She told me I could chew on it, but
not the furniture. Is this another rule? I don't know about all these rules and
seasons. I hope you come here soon because I miss you.
Don't forget I love you and you are my boy!
You dog, Wall-E
