It all started out as fun and games…. really!
We were just playing hide and seek – the little chipmunk and me.
I think I might have caught him one too many times though…
So I carried him around the yard all afternoon so we could rest in the shade of the cool grass until he felt well enough to play again.
I was really worried about him, so I snuck him in the house through my doggie door (where I had a feeling Mom and Dad didn’t want him) and took him into their bed with me for a more comfy rest under the ceiling fan and on the soft comforter.
But then they caught us….
First my brother Nick, who called Mom in, who called Dad in.
Then everything became a blur!
Mom distracted me with my toy donut while Dad picked up my friend, and the next thing I knew “Chippy” was gone.
Sorry, Buddy. It sure was fun while it lasted.
And I don’t know why Mom felt the need to take the comforter off the bed and throw it in the wash. It was so soft and comfy and smelled like my friend….
Springtime in Mars…. It’s a dog’s life… It’s a great life… It’s my life.
Woofs & Wags,
PS Please don’t be mad at me. It really started out as fun and games…
