Where Are You

Dear Gavin,

Something really strange happened last night. Gramma was talking and

holding that thing she calls a phone to her head. She does that sometimes,

I don't know why. Anyway, she picked me up and put that phone thing by

my ear .... I could hear you calling my name! But, where were you? It sounded

like you were inside that phone thing...but you couldn't be, it was way too little

to hold you! Oh,No! Did something happen to my boy? How could my boy get

in that phone? I looked and I looked, but I couldn't find you in this house


Gramma told me to calm down after she put that phone away. She walked all

through the house with me to show me that you weren't here, then she held

me and told me that you were in Minnesota with your mom and that you were

fine. I hope so, Gramma is usually right about everything ...... Papa said so.

Guess what? Did you know there is another room here with a big bed in it?

Gramma let me see it last night when I was looking for you, she said it was

dog-free zone. She said that means I can't go in there, Oscar and Emmy can't


Before I got scared by that phone tonight, there were some people in the store.

Every time someone comes in the store Gramma takes me out there and the

people look at me. Sometimes she lets them touch me! I get scared, but she

holds me close to her and takes me back in the house with Oscar and Emmy.

Sometimes Oscar and Emmy go in the store to see people they know.

They like it, but I don't know about that. I think I will stay in the house.

Gramma says I have to learn to shut-up when the buzzer goes off. Emmy

never barks at it, but Oscar barks with me...hey, we are just trying to help.

Please don't shrink and go in that phone thing again, okay? Don't forget,

you are my boy and I love you!
