CONTINUED FROM THE PREVIOUS POST…
I took a deep breath of fresh air when all of a sudden —
I was knocked over by something brown and furry! When I looked up, I saw…
It was a puppy!
“Hello there,” I said. “And where did you come from?”
“Woof!” the puppy barked. I am not that good at translating dog language.
He did not have a collar on. I looked around. There was no one in sight.
“Hmm,” I said. “It seems that you are by yourself.”
“Would you like to play with me?”
We climbed on some posts and jumped from one to the next.
We sat on a bridge and relaxed to the sound of a gentle stream. I explained to him the best way to catch a fish. He was a beary good listener.
We continued on the hiking trail together.
Then we watched a baseball game that was going on in the park.
But it was getting late and Uncle Tibbs and my mom would soon wonder where I had gone.
“It was nice playing with you today,” I said to the puppy. “But I have to go home now. Maybe I will see you again someday.”
And then I headed home.
Along the way, I stopped to smell these daisies.
Everything was so green, as green as my hoodie.
I had such a nice time at the park today. I can’t wait to tell Uncle Tibbs all about it!
