Xena: Since Mom hasn’t been going to those work places, me and Lucy have had her full attention all day, every day.
Lucy: You have a distorted since of time, sister. Mom has been on her computer job hunting and reading blogs from our friends, and cleaning and doing other stuff.
Xena: Well, yesterday and today she took us to the dog park for 87 hours and we had a blast! The temperature was finally cool enough in the morning that we didn’t have heat strokes.
Lucy: I did love to run, run, run with everyone. And I watched for new dogs coming in so I could make new friends.Xena: Yep, you rolled on your back, Lucy Goosey, and waved your paws while I hopped up and down and barked at them.Lucy: Did you even notice that both days, you were the only one barking? Mom calls you the Mouth of the South, but everyone at the park called me Sweet.
Xena: How could I notice, Luce the Sweet Goose? I couldn’t hear anything over my own barking! Hey, did you see me chase that giant American Bulldog that came in last? He had big junk hanging between his back legs like Achilles used to have.
Lucy: I saw you, and so did Mom. We were both watching to be sure you didn’t turn into dog chow. I know you saw him knock over that other dog who was about your size and growl and slobber all over his black furs. We left a few minutes after that.Xena: Yep, he knew not to mess with me. It was a lot of fun to run with you and the other big dogs, though. And today I got to rule over Gracy, the Pyrenees mix.
Lucy: That reminds me, why are you in the big dog side?
Xena: Mommy said you are too big to be allowed into the small dog side, and there is only one of her, so I had to play with the big dogs. I kept up with everyone, too. I’m 87 months younger than you, so I have tons more energy. Last night you totally crashed.
Xena: If you can’t run with the big dogs…stay on the porch – or the little dog side of the park.
