Fun Time at the Circus

Hey Midge,” said Booker-T, poking her in the head. “Look over there.”
Midge turned to look in the direction where Booker-T was pointing. She saw a woman dressed it bright red pants and jacket prancing into the ring followed by six cute little poodles all dressed in suits and dresses. “Oh wow!” said Midge. “They are so cute.”
Would you wear one of those dresses?” laughed Jake. “I can see you now all dressed in a pretty pink dress with a pink bow above your ear and a jeweled collar.”
Very funny,” smiled Midge. “I think they are cute but that's not for me.”
But you were wanting to dance before,” said Booker-T.

Going to the Circus

Hello Jake,” called Midge as she ran up the steps to the front porch where Jake was laying on the porch swing.
Hi Midge,” greeted Jake. “Wasn't Booker-T going to come with you today?”
He had to go to the vet's this morning” said Midge. “He wants us to wait for him. He will come when he and his owner get home.”
Was he sick?” asked Jake jumping down from the swing.
No,” said Midge. “He said it was time for his yearly shots.”
Oh,” sighed Jake. “I think it is almost time for me to go for shots too.”
I don't think I have to go until next month,” said Midge. “I always forget, but owner never forgets.”
Mine don't forget either,” agreed Jake. “She always writes things down in her appointment book.”
Does it hurt when you get your shots?” asked Midge.

The Circus is Coming

 “Hey Jake!” called Midge as she came running up the sidewalk to the front porch. “What are you doing?”
Slow down Midge,” said Jake. “Where is Booker-T? He didn't come with you this morning?”
I forgot him,” sighed Midge. “Oh no. Do you think he will be upset with me?”
No Midge,” said Jake. “But why are you in such a big hurry?”
Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he strolled up the steps to the porch. “I started to walk over to your house and saw you running up the sidewalk. You forgot me.”
I'm sorry Booker-T,” said Midge. “I was so excited and wasn't thinking this morning.”
Why are you so excited?” asked Jake.

Midge Meets the New Neighbor

Midge started walking along the sidewalk on her way to Jake's house. She saw a huge truck parked in the driveway of the house on the corner of her street. “Wow,” thought Midge. “That is a really big truck.” As she got closer to the house, she saw the name on the side of the truck, 'Baker's Moving'. “Hmmmm, new neighbors moving in, or maybe they are moving out.” She stopped and stared at the big truck for a few minutes and then noticed a tiny dog sitting on the steps of the house. She looked around and didn't see any humans. She slowly walked up the sidewalk to where the little one was sitting.
Hi,” smiled Midge. “I'm Midge.”
Hi Midge,” said the little dog.
Are you moving in?” asked Midge.

Midge and Booker-T Visit Misty

 “She'll be coming around the mountain when she comes,” sang Midge as she bounced along the sidewalk on her way to Jake's house. “She'll be coming around the mountain when she comes.”
Who is coming around what mountain?” asked Booker-T running to catch up to Midge. “Are you going to Jake's house?”
Hi Booker-T,” said Midge. “I didn't see you this morning so I started by myself.”
I slept late this morning so I wasn't outside,” said Booker-T. “So who is coming around what mountain?”
It's just a song,” laughed Midge. “I don't know who she is or what mountain she is coming around.”
