"Hi Midge," said Jake as he strolled up the sidewalk to the front porch. "What are you doing?"
"I'm trying to find my dog dish," said Midge.
"Where did you see it last?" asked Jake.
"Next to my dog house in the back yard," said Midge. "It was there this morning when I ate my breakfast."
"Did your owner pick it up and take it in the house when you finished eating?" asked Jake.
"No, she left for work after she brought it out to me. I ate my breakfast, turned around and went to the front yard for a minute and when I came back, it was gone," said Midge.

Midge ran up the sidewalk to Jake's house and slid through the gate. “Jake!” called Midge. “Jake! Where are you?”
“Hey Midge,” said Jake. “Slow down. I saw you slide through the gate. What is the hurry?”
“Come now Jake,” said Midge. “The aliens have landed!”
“Midge,” said Jake. “The last time you thought aliens landed, it was someone flying an air balloon. Is it another big balloon?”
“No Jake,” said Midge. “These are real aliens. I saw them at the store.”
“What were they doing at the store?” asked Jake.

"Midge!" called Gabby. "Hey! Where are you?"
Midge came running down the stairs. "Gabby," said Midge. "What is going on? Why are you yelling at me?"
"The sun is coming up and I want to go outside," said Gabby. "Spring is here now I think and time for me to spread my wings and go back outside."
"Okay," said Midge. "Come to the kitchen and sit on the counter. When my owner comes down to feed me before she goes to work, she will see you here and will open the door to let you out."
"Are you sure that will work?" asked Gabby.
"I think so," said Midge. "She will know you are better and want to go out."
"I've always been good, remember," laughed Gabby.
"I remember," smiled Midge. "We have til next winter to think of a good way to get you a warm place to stay again."

"Hey there Jake!" called Midge as she came running around the corner and into his front gate. "What are you doing?"
"Slow down Midge," said Jake, just as she came bouncing up the stairs. "I'm not doing anything but laying here on the swing enjoying the morning sun."
"That's great!" smiled Midge. "Don't you love this morning?"
"The sun is good this morning," said Jake. "Why all the excitement?"
"The sun is nice and warm," said Midge. "And the snow is melting. I think the snow is pretty when you are inside the house looking out at it, but it is too cold to be in it and now it is melting away. I'm so happy to see it go. Spring is on the way!"
