Even better than a My Buddy doll would be an actual dog that I could play with and snuggle and chew on all the time! No, Matt and Alicia have not given into my pleas for a new puppy (they say one puppy is enough, thankyouverymuch!). But we did go up to New Jersey to visit her family, and it was there I had the opportunity to get a taste of what it would be like to have a sibling.
|We would snuggle up for naps...|
|...and she wouldn't mind how I move around in my sleep.|
|We would go on long walks together...|
|...And she would be patient with me when I|
abruptly decided to lay down on the ground...
|...only to walk a bit further before deciding I|
wanted to stop and sniff and rest again...
|...and then literally take a handful of steps before deciding|
I needed to stop and eat some grass.
It would be fantastic! We could drink out of the same water bowl, and steal cat food together. We could bark at strange noises and animals that trespass in the yard (wild turkeys, I'm looking at you!). What a life.
|And I wouldn't have to give a grumpy face|
when it was time to leave, because we'd
ALWAYS be together!
|Look at what a good sister I would be! Happily sharing!|
|I snuck into the front seat while Alicia was|
driving down the Turnpike. It scared her.
|At the rest stop, she put me back in the back.|
Party pooper! I stick my tongue out at you!
