Midge awoke early and ran down the stairs to check on Gabby and Snappy. She jumped into the big chair and poked her nose over the edge of the tank.
“Hi Snappy,” greeted Midge. “How are you this morning?”
“Hi Midge,” said Snappy. “I am good. I just love the warm water your owner gives me to swim in. It really feels good. I like it here.”
“Me too,” said Gabby as he poked his head out of the basket. “It is so nice of your owner to take care of us for the winter.”
“I know,” said Midge. “She is a good person. You will be here alone when I go to Jake's this morning. Will you be okay til I get back?”
