Midge is not at Home

“Hello Midge!” called Booker-T as he hurried up the steps to her front porch. “Where are you?”

Midge didn't answer and Booker-T banged on the door with his paw and called again,”Midge! Where are you?”

Still there wasn't an answer from Midge. He leaped off the porch and ran around to the back yard and looked all around and saw no one. He ran to the doggie door and pushed on it to look inside, but the door wouldn't open. He pushed harder but still the door wouldn't open. He jumped onto the box that sat beneath the back window and put his little face against the glass and tried to see inside. The curtains were closed and he could not see anything. He jumped off the box and ran to the front porch and climbed into the swing. He pressed his nose against the glass and peeked between the curtains into the big room. It was dark inside but he saw no one moving inside. He gently tapped on the window and then waited. No Midge came to the window to peek out. He again tapped lightly on the window. But still Midge did not come to the window or the door.

'Maybe she is already on her way to Jake's,' thought Booker-T as he jumped off the porch and started for the gate.

He hurried along the sidewalk and about half way to Jake's house, he met Jake coming toward him. “Where you going Jake?”

“I'm on my way to Midge's house,” said Jake. “She never came to the house this morning so going to check on her.”

“I just came from the house and she isn't there,” said Booker-T. “The house is dark and no one inside came to the door.”

“I don't remember Midge saying anything about going anywhere today,” said Booker-T. “I hope that she is okay.”

“I didn't see her leave,” said Booker-T. “They must have left the house really early this morning. Maybe her mistress took her to the vet's today. Is it time for her shots?”

“No,” said Jake. “She had them about a month ago I think. It would be too soon for more of them.”

“I hope she is okay,” said Booker-T.

“Do you want to sit on the porch a while and wait to see if she comes back soon?” asked Booker-T.

“No we better not sit on her porch when they aren't home,” said Jake.
“I just live next door,” said Booker-T. “We can sit on my front porch and wait.”

“That's a good idea,” said Jake. “Lets go.”

The two ran up the steps to the porch and leaped into the swing. They impatiently waited for Midge to come home. Soon they both had fallen asleep in the swing. They don't know how long they had been asleep when they heard a car pull into the driveway next door. They jumped up and watched to see who came out of the car. A young woman opened the door to the car and walked to the back door of the car and opened it. Out jumped Midge with pretty pink bows on her head. Jake and Booker-T sat in the swing staring at her.

“Oh wow, Jake,” said Booker-T. “Midge must have gone to the groomers today. She is looking pretty.”

“She always looks so nice when she comes home from that place,” said Jake. “They always put something on her too that makes her smell pretty.”

“Wow, I wonder if Susie can go to that place,” said Booker-T. “She would look nice with bows on her head too.”

“I don't know if that place only does dogs or if they do cats too,” said Jake. “And I don't know how you would get her mistress to take her.”

“Maybe if we saw an ad for the place we could leave a hint for her mistress,” said Booker-T. “That might work.”

“And where do we find an ad for them?” asked Jake.

“Oh, well, I don't know,” said Booker-T. “I didn't think of that one.”

“You are so funny,” said Jake.

“Maybe we will think of some way to let her know,” said Booker-T. “Keep thinking about it and maybe we can come up with something. Maybe Midge will know.”

“We can ask her when she comes over to the house,” said Jake.

“Okay, that will be good,” said Booker-T. “Lets go find out if Midge wants to go to the park.”

Jake and Booker-T jumped out of the swing and ran to Midge's house.
