Happy New Year


“Jake!” called Midge as she hurried up the walkway to the porch. “Well, how are you this wonderful new year?”
“Hi Midge,” greeted Jake. “The year really flew by, don't you think?”
“I know,” said Midge. “I think I remember when 2015 showed up and now we are starting 2016 today. Wow.”
“Where is Booker-T this morning?” asked Jake.
“He went somewhere last night with his owner,” said Midge. “I think his owner went to visit with her brother and took Booker-T with her so he wouldn't be at the house alone.”
“That was nice,” said Jake. “Did your owner have a New Year's Eve party last night?” asked Jake.
“She had a few friends in and they laughed and ate pizza and watched a couple movies that one of her friends brought to the house,” said Midge. “She has some nice friends. They all patted me on the head and said what a cute dog I was.”
“That's true,” smiled Jake. “You are a cute dog if I say so myself.”
“Thanks Jake,” said Midge blushing. “You always say the nicest things you know.”
“You are the cutest little dog I know,” laughed Jake. “And now we go into the new year and maybe you will have some new ideas for mischief we can get into.”
“Oh Jake,” said Midge. “I will have to think on it for a while. There must be something we haven't tried yet and maybe we can try this new year.”

The Christmas Gifts

  “Hey Midge,” called Booker-T as he walked up to the porch where Midge was sitting. “What are you doing this morning?”
“Waiting for you,” laughed Midge. “Lets go see Jake.”
“Did you have a good Christmas?” asked Booker-T.
“My owner gave me a new sweater for winter,” said Midge. “And a box of chew bones and a new water and food dish. What did you get this year?”
“I got a couple boxes of fish flavored treats and a new kitty litter box and I also got a new water and food dish. These new ones have my name on them,” said Booker-T.
“I wonder what Jake got this year,” said Midge.
“Did your owner get anything for Snappy?” asked Booker-T.
“She got him some new little logs and rocks for his tank,” said Midge. “She cleaned his tank and put them in it this morning and he was so happy to see the pretty area she fixed for him.”

Hi you two,” said Jake as he came around to the front of the house. “I am here. I was in the back eating my breakfast. What are you two doing this morning?”
Well, we are here to tell you Midge's idea,” said Booker-T.

Meet Ling Ling

Come on Jake,” said Midge. “Lets go see the Panda Bear. They are so cute.”
You like it because she is the same color as you,” laughed Jake.
She looks so cuddly don't you think?” asked Midge.
I don't know about cuddly,” said Jake. “But it does look little like a teddy bear.”
They walked over to the Panda bear, where Booker-T was busy talking with the bear.
Hi Booker-T,” said Midge. “What are you doing?”
Hi Midge, Jake,” smiled Booker-T. “Meet Ling Ling. She is called a Panda bear.”
Hi Ling Ling,” said Midge.
Hi Midge,” greeted Ling Ling. “Do you like the little zoo here?”

Hi Midge,” smiled Jake. “I was sitting here thinking of something to do today.”
What do you want to do?” asked Midge.
I'm not sure yet,” said Jake. “Do you have any ideas.”
Why don't we go to the zoo and see what animals are there,” said Booker-T. “Maybe they got a big tiger there now. I like Tigers.”
Do you want to go to the zoo, Jake?” asked Midge.
Sure,” agreed Jake. “We can see what animals they have there now.”

Jake and Midge where sitting on Midge's front porch waiting on Booker-T to walk over so they could go to the park. “Lets go in and talk to Snappy while we wait,” suggested Midge.
Sure,” said Jake. “Lets go. It has been a few days since I saw him.”
They walked to the back of the and house and squeezed through the doggie door. Once inside they quickly crossed the kitchen and entered the living room. “Hey Snappy,” called Jake when he got close to the tank that he called home.
Snappy looked out the glass of the tank,” Hi Jake.”

Midge and the Ideas

 “Hey Midge,” greeted Jake as Midge walked through the gate at Jake's house. “What are you doing this morning?”
Hi Jake,” smiled Midge. “Am visiting you this morning.”
Ha ha,” laughed Jake. “We are always visiting each other.”
I know,” said Midge. “I'm happy we are friends.”
Me too,” agreed Jake. “Where is Booker-T this morning?”
He had to go to the vet's this morning,” said Midge. “I saw his owner putting him in the car this morning.”
Seems like not long ago he went,” said Jake. “Time goes fast doesn't it?”

The Odd Ball

Hi Midge!” called Jake as he scurried up the sidewalk to the front porch where Midge was sitting. “What are you doing?'
Hi Jake,” smiled Midge. “Waiting on Booker-T to come over. He wants to see Snappy before we go run in the park.”
I'd like to go in and talk to snappy too,” said Jake. “I haven't seen him in a while. How is he doing?”
He sure loves his new home,” said Midge. “He knows winter is coming and he don't miss the cold pond.”
That is good,” said Jake. “He really is a small little guy to be in the big pond. Someone could step on him and not realize it. He is safer in this home.”

“Are we going to go to the park today?” asked Midge.
“Where's Booker-T?” asked Jake. “Isn't he coming too?”
“He will be here shortly,” said Midge. “He was waiting for his owner to leave too.”
“Must be a late day for everyone,” laughed Jake.
“Mine was early going to work today,” said Midge. “I sat and talked with Gabby before checking on Booker-T. He said to come on here and he would come soon as he could.”
“Have you seen Gabby?” asked Jake. “He hasn't been around for a couple of days.”

What are you doing?” asked Midge.
I was eating my breakfast,” said Jake. “You are early. What is going on today?”
Oh Jake,” said Booker-T shaking his head. “You won’t believe what Midge wants to do now?”
What does she want to do now?” asked Jake.
You don’t want to ask that,” said Booker-T.

Are you going to see Snappy?” asked Booker-T.
Yes,” said Jake. “Come on lets go see him before we go to the park.”

Funny,” laughed Booker-T.

The rodeo?” asked Booker-T as he came into the yard to join Jake and Midge.
Yes,” said Jake. “The rodeo.”
What is a rodeo,” asked Booker-T.

Hi Gabby,” said Midge. “What are you doing?”
Looking for you,” said Gabby. “Hi you two. Where is Jake?”
Hi Gabby,” greeted Booker-T. “Jake is at home. We are going there now.”
So, who is going to be coming around what mountain?” asked Gabby. “Do I know who it is?”

Maybe,” said Midge. “Lets go inside through his doggie door and check up on him.”
They started to go to the backyard when Jake came around the corner.
Hi you guys,” greeted Jake. “When did you get here?”
A few minutes ago,” said Midge. “Did you hear us calling you?”

The Cartoon World

Here I come to save the day,” sang Jake as he skipped along the sidewalk and came through the gate at Midge's house.
What are you singing?” laughed Midge. “Does the day need saving?”
My owner turned on the TV and there was a cartoon on,” smiled Jake. “There was a mouse with a cape on and he was singing the song.”
A mouse is going to save the day?” asked Midge. “What kind of mouse is he?”
He is a mighty mouse,” said Jake.
A mighty mouse?” questioned Midge. “A mouse is very small. How can he be mighty?”

Hey Midge!” called Jake as he came through the gate at Midge's house. “Where are you?”

He's coming,” said Midge. “He was sleeping and I woke him up.”
Hi Jake,” said Booker-T as he came around the house from the back yard and caught up with Midge as she went through the gate.

My owner left for work early today so I walked on over here,” said Jake. “I saw your owner leaving.”
She just left for work,” smiled Midge. “Come on in and say hi to Snappy.”
Jake followed Midge into the living room. “Hi Snappy,” called Jake as he entered the room.
Hi Jake,” said Snappy as he came up and pressed his nose to the side of the glass. “What are you doing this morning?”
I came to say hi,” said Jake. “We miss having you at the pond when we go to swim.”

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Is the Circus Coming?

Hey Jake!” called Midge as she sauntered up the sidewalk to the front porch. “What are you doing?”
Hi Midge,” greeted Jake as he sat up on the swing. “Where is Booker-T?”
He will be here in little while,” said Midge. “He was waiting for his owner to leave for work. She was going late today.”
Is Gabby coming to the park with us today?” asked Jake.
I don't know,” replied Midge as she sat down on the porch.
I sure miss Snappy sometimes when we go swim in the pond,” said Jake. “He sure liked swimming with us.”

The New Addition at Jake's

Hi Jake!” called Midge as she walked to the porch where Jake was sitting. “What are you doing?”
Hmm,” said Jake. “I'm picking cotton.”
What?” asked Midge looking at Jake with a puzzled look. “You look like you are just sitting there doing nothing.”
Yes,” said Jake. “That's what I am doing. Nothing.”
Oh,” laughed Midge. “You are being funny.”
Where's Booker-T?” asked Jake. “I thought he was coming with you.”
He had to go to the vet's this morning so we are supposed to go get him before we go to the park,” said Midge.

He walked to the porch where Midge was sitting . “Hey,” said Jake. “Didn't you hear me calling you?”
Oh, Hi Jake,” smiled Midge. “I didn't hear you.”
Where is your brain at this morning?” asked Jake. “You were off in another world maybe.”
Ha ha,” laughed Midge. “I guess maybe I was.”
What were you thinking about?” asked Jake.
I was thinking about an adventure,” said Midge.
What kind of adventure?” asked Jake.
I don't know yet.. I was just thinking,” said Midge. “I'm sure there is something I can do.”
We are limited you know,” said Jake.

Midge Takes A Ride

  “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he ran into the front yard. “Where are you?”

Hi Midge,” greeted Jake. “Hi Snappy.”
Hi Jake,” said Midge.

The Old Cars

Midge and Booker-T hurried along the sidewalk on their way to Jake's place with Smokey running behind to keep up.
Come on Smokey,” said Midge.
I'm hurrying,” said Smokey. “You walk so fast you know.”
Oh,” said Midge stopping to let Smokey catch up with them. “I didn't think about it.”
I guess we are used to all of us walking fast,” said Booker-T. “We will slow down.”
The three strolled along at a slower pace, continuing on their way to Jake's. They rounded the corner and entered the gate at Jake's place.
Hey Jake!” called Midge as they entered the yard. “Where are you?”
Hi Midge,” said Jake as he came from the back yard. “Well, who have you got with you?”

What are you happy about today?” asked Snappy.
We went to see the dinosaur statues yesterday and after we saw them, we went to the zoo,” said Midge.
Was it fun?” asked Snappy.
It was really good,” replied Midge. “Those dinosaurs are really big animal monsters. I'm happy they don't live in our city.”

Meeting the New Zoo Animals

Hey Jake,” said Midge. “Is that a lion over there?”

How do you know that it is a he?” asked Midge.
See the big mane around the neck?” asked Jake. “The boy lions have that mane. The girl lions don't.”

New Zoo Animals

 “Those were really big monster animals,” said Midge as the three walked along the sidewalk on their way to the zoo holding building.
I know it,” said Booker-T. “I hope they never come here to our city. They are so big that they could step on our houses and crush them.”
Do you think they will ever come here?” asked Midge.
I don't know,” said Jake shaking his head. “I hope not. Maybe Gabby knows. He knows everything.”
Do you think he knows where these big monster animals live?” asked Booker-T.

The Monster Display

Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he ran into the living room of her house. “Where are you?”
Hi Booker-T,” said Snappy. “Midge is in the bedroom. What are you doing?”
He Snappy,” smiled Booker-T. “Did Midge tell you about the big monsters we saw yesterday?”
She was telling me about them last night,” said Snappy. “They sound too big. The could step on me and not know it, I'm so small.”
You are safe there in your nice home,” said Booker-T. “How are your new friends who are living there with you?”

Thursday, July 2, 2015

What Are the Monsters?

The three friends went back to Jake’s house with Gabby flying above them.
Why is the museum putting those big animals out there on display?” asked Midge.
I don’t know,” replied Jake.
I’ve never seen one of those big animals,” said Booker-T. “Do you think there are some living somewhere?”
I don’t know,” said Jake. “If they are living somewhere, I sure don’t want to run into one.”
Me either,” agreed Midge. “I bet they would eat a lot.”
Probably would eat us too,” said Jake. “I hope they aren’t living anywhere close to our city.”
That one sure had big teeth,” said Midge. “Did you see his teeth? Wow, he could eat us in one bite.”

Thursday, June 25, 2015

The Monsters Are Here

Jake! Jake!” called Midge as she hurried into his front yard. “Where are you? Come quick!”
Jake came around the house. “What is going on?” asked Jake. “Where is Booker-T? Is he okay? Is Snappy okay?”
Oh Jake,” said Midge all excited and nearly out of breath. “You have to come quick. There are monsters here!”
Monsters?” asked Jake. “Where are there monsters? I don't think we have monsters in our city.”
Oh yes we do,” said Midge. “I saw them! I saw them Jake!”

Come on,” said Midge. “I want to watch these funny little guys.”
Those are monkeys,” said Gabby as he swooped down and landed on the top of the monkey cage.
Hi Gabby,” said Midge. “What are you doing?”
I was looking for you,” said Gabby. “I went to your house and to Jake's house but didn't see you guys anywhere.”
Why were you looking for us?” asked Jake. “Is everything okay with you?”
I was going to tell you about the zoo holding place,” said Gabby. “I saw it the other day and I remembered you wanted to go to the big zoo where Polly and I went but it is across town from here.”
I heard about it on the TV when my owner was watching the news,” said Jake. “We didn't see anyone around so we came on in to see the animals.”

Midge and Friends Visit the Zoo Animals

Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T entered through the gate at Jake's place. “Where are you?”
Maybe he is sleeping,” said Booker-T looking around.
Lets check the back yard,” said Midge as she started around the corner of the house. “Come on Booker-T.”
Booker-T followed quickly behind Midge as she entered the back yard.
Jake!” called Midge. “Where are you? Booker-T and I are here.”
Hi Midge,” said Jake as he poked his head through the doggie door and came outside. “Hi Booker-T.”
Are you ready to go to the zoo this morning?” asked Midge. “I want to see the animals.”
We don't know if we can get in there yet,” said Jake.

The New Zoo Facility

 “Midge!” called Jake as he came through the gate at her house. “Where are you?”
Hey Jake,” said Midge as she ran around the corner of the house from the back yard. “You sound excited about something.”
Guess what?” he asked.
What happened?” asked Midge.
Remember the little meerkat we found laying on the bench in the park?” asked Jake.
I remember,” agreed Midge. “Did you see him again?”
No, but I heard something on the news last night when my owner was watching TV,” said Jake. “They are opening a little zoo near the school now. Maybe that little meerkat is in that new little zoo.”
Maybe we can try to get in to see the animals,” said Midge. “Gabby likes that zoo on the other side of town.”
This one is going to be a small zoo,” said Jake. “The man on the news said it will be a holding place for new animals being sent to the big zoo and being sent from the big zoo to other zoos in other cities.”
Oh wow,” smiled Midge. “I want to go sneak in and see the animals.”

Thursday, May 28, 2015

The New Cat in Town

Midge and Booker-T strolled along the sidewalk going to Jake's house. They had planned to meet this morning and go to the park for a little swim in the pond. They entered the yard and Midge called out to Jake.
Hey Jake!” called Midge. “Where are you? Jake!”
Jake came walking around the house from the back yard. “I'm here in the back yard.”
Are you ready to go to the park?” asked Booker-T.
We want to visit Sylvester and Jenny,” smiled Midge.
They will be happy to see you,” said Jake.
It's warm today and we can go for little swim in the pond too,” said Midge.

Midge Helps New Friend

The three friends walked through the parking lot of the school on their way to Midge's place. As they passed the brick wall in front of the school, Midge heard a little voice.
Help me will you?” said someone.
Midge stopped walking and stood a moment listening.
What are you doing?” asked Booker-T when he stopped walking. “I thought you were thirsty?”
I am,” said Midge. “Did you hear someone talking?”
I didn't hear anyone,” said Booker-T. “Did you hear anyone Jake?”
I didn't hear anything either,” agreed Jake. “Maybe you are hearing things.”

Search for a Swamp

Hey Booker-T!” called Midge as she came through the gate at his house. “Where are you?”
Hi Midge,” greeted Booker-T as he came out of the house through the little doggie door in the back door. “I was going to come to your house to see Snappy.”
We can go back to visit Snappy before we go to Jake's house if you want,” said Midge.
Okay,” agreed Booker-T. “Lets go.”
The two ran to Midge's place and into the house. They hurried across the kitchen to the living room where Snappy was sitting on the little bridge in his tank talking to Sammy and Jimmy.
Booker-T leaped into the chair beside the tank and then up on the top of the tank. “Hi Snappy,” said Booker-T.

Midge Tells Snappy About the Slide

Hi Snappy,” said Midge as she jumped into the chair next to his tank.
Good morning Midge,” said Snappy. “You were outside last night.”
Yes,” said Midge. “I was with Booker-T and Jake.”
Does our owner know you were outside last night?” asked Snappy.
No,” said Midge. “She was sleeping when I went outside. But she is okay if I go outside.”
Okay,” said Snappy. “I was worried about you in the dark.”
Thanks Snappy,” smiled Midge. “That's nice of you. I used to worry about you out there at the pond in the night all alone. I am happy you now have this nice new home and don't have to be out there alone.”

Friday, May 1, 2015

Riding the Slide

Midge lay awake at the foot of her owner's bed waiting for her to fall asleep. It seemed like a long time before she finally was fast asleep. Midge quietly left the room and went to the kitchen where she pushed her way through the doggie door and walked around the the front porch to wait for Jake. When she approached the porch, she found Booker-T sitting on the bench.
Hi Booker-T,” smiled Midge. “Are you ready to try and sneak into the park?”
I saw someone walking around over there at the park,” said Booker-T.
Are you sure?” asked Midge, quickly turning around to look across the street. “Where was he?”

Friday, April 24, 2015

Into the Water Park

Midge!” called Jake as he strolled through the gate into her front yard. “What are you doing?”
I am just sitting here watching them work over there at the water park,” said Midge. “They turned on the water now.”
Are they checking it all out before they open it?” asked Booker-T as he hurried into the yard and sat next to Midge.
That slide is really big Jake,” said Midge. “I want to slide down that slide and go splashing into the water.”

Thursday, April 16, 2015

The Water Park Plan

Good morning Midge,” said Jake as he hurried up the sidewalk to the porch where Midge was sitting. “What are you doing?”
Watching them putting up that big fence over there,” said Midge. “It is really big one.”
Maybe because the water would be dangerous if a kid was to fall in and drown,” said Jake.
But they don’t have a big fence around the pond in the park,” said Midge. “Why do they put up such a big fence around the water park?”
I don’t know,” said Jake. “I never thought about that.”
Kids play at the pond all the time without big people there,” said Midge. “Don’t that sign on the big fence say that they can’t go in there without some adult being with them?”

The Water Park

Midge ran to the house next door. “Booker-T!” called Midge as she ran through the gate. “Where are you?”
Hi Midge,” said Booker-T as he came around the corner of the house. “Why all the excitement? Are you okay?”
I’m on my way to Jake’s house,” said Midge. “Are you coming with me?”
Sure,” smiled Booker-T. “But why the big hurry?”
Did you see what they are doing across the street?” asked Midge.
I see the tractor is still digging,” said Booker-T.

Jake's Birthday

 "Hey Jake!" called Midge as she skipped along the sidewalk to the front porch.  "Hey Jake! Where are you?"
 "Hi Midge," called Jake as he came running around the corner of the house.  "What are you doing?"
 "What are you doing?" asked Midge. "I am just coming to see you so we can go to the park."
 "I was in the back yard," said Jake. "I just came outside.  You are early this morning. The sun is barely up yet."
 "I know," said Midge.  "My owner went to work early today and I was bored sitting there at the house."
 "How is Snappy?" asked Jake. "He is there to talk to."
 "I know and we talked for a while," said Midge.  "But I was ready to come out and come see you."
 "Where is Booker-T?" asked Jake.

Something is Happening at the Park

  “Jake! Jake!” screamed Midge as she ran up the sidewalk to Jake's house.
“Hey! Slow down” said Jake. “What is going on? Why the hurry?”
“Come on let's go!” aid Midge. “You have to see.”
“What do I have to see?” asked Jake. “Where is Booker-T?”
“He is already there,” said Midge. “He is waiting for us.”
“Where is he waiting?” asked Jake. “Slow down a minute.”
“He is at the park,” said Midge.
“What is he doing at the park?” asked Jake.
“Come on,” said Midge as she started out the gate with Jake running behind her.
The two raced along the sidewalk to the park. They quickly looked both ways and then ran across the street into the park. They found Booker-T sitting on one of the benches.

Jimmy and Sammy Ant

The morning came with the sun glistening brightly on all the snow that covered the ground. The snowflakes glistened like gems spread across the yard. Midge ran outside and wasn't out long when she scurried back through the doggie door into the kitchen.
Jake pushed his way through the door behind her. “HI Midge,” smiled Jake. “What are you doing?”
Hi Jake,” greeted Midge. “Isn't the snow pretty in the sunlight?”
It is really bright out there this morning,” said Jake. “But it feels very cold.”
I know,” said Midge. “That's why I hurried back inside. My feet were cold.”
Is Booker-T here?” asked Jake. “I didn't see him outside.”

The Snow Continues to Fall

Midge ran outside in the morning to take care of business while she waited for Booker-T and Jake to come. The snow was still falling. She was standing there laughing when Jake came around the corner.
What is so funny?” asked Jake. “You look like you are having fun.”
The snowflakes tickle my nose,” said Midge.
You mean your nose isn't frozen after diving into the snow like you did yesterday?” asked Jake. “You really looked so funny all covered with snow.”
You make a really good snowdog, Midge,” said Booker-T as he joined the two in the backyard.
It was very cold,” said Midge. “But it was fun sliding down the hill but I couldn't make the sled stop till it hit that spot at the bottom of the hill and I flew off.”

Again Comes the Snow

Snowflakes are falling on my head,” sang Midge as she hurried along the sidewalk dragging a sled. Booker-T was running behind her as they went through the gate at Jake's house.
Midge,” said Jake. “I think the words are 'Raindrops keep falling on my head', not snowflakes.”
But it isn't raining out,” said Midge. “It is snowing again so I changed the words for the day.”
Why are you dragging that sled?” asked Jake. “Did you take it from some kid's yard?”
Oh no,” aid Midge. “It was in my back yard. It belongs to my owner's nephew.”
Why are you dragging it around?” asked Jake.

Early Morning Frost

Midge woke up early and ran to the kitchen and out the little doggie door to the back yard. She quickly stopped and looked around at the trees and the bushes.
Wow!” thought Midge. The light glistened off the trees like many shiny gems hanging on them. “This is really beautiful.”
She stood for a short time just looking around at the back yard that was covered in a white blanket. She walked into the yard to take care of business and the ground made a crunch noise beneath her feet. She hurried back inside and jumped into the chair next to Snappy's tank and curled up in the blanket her owner set there for her.
“You are up early today,” said Snappy.
“Good morning Snappy,” smiled Midge. “Yes it is early. I had to go outside and could not wait any longer. Did I wake you up?”

Do you Like the Rain

 Midge woke up early to the sound of thunder rattling the windows. She lifted her head from the bed and looked toward the window. Flashes of light could be seen through the curtains. Her owner was still sound asleep. In a few minutes she could hear the rain hitting the window. “I guess the rain is better than the snow,” thought Midge. “Maybe spring will be coming soon. It must be a little warmer outside to be raining.”
She laid on the bed listening to the rain fall. Before long, the radio on the little table near the bed began to play. She glanced at her owner who rolled over and reached for the radio to shut it off. She patted Midge on the head.
“Good morning girl,” said Midge's owner. “Sounds like we are having some rain today.”

Happy Valentine's Day

Midge ran over to Booker-T's house as he was coming around the corner from the back yard.
“Hey Booker-T,” said Midge.
“What are you doing?” asked Booker-T. “I was just coming to your house. I wanted to say hi to Snappy before we go to Jake's house.”
“Okay,” smiled Midge. “This is for you.”
“Thank you,” said Booker-T taking the little treat from her. “What is this for?”
“Today is Valentine's day,” said Midge. “So this is my valentine to you.”
“But isn't Valentine's day for Sweethearts?” asked Booker-T.

Wishing for Summer

Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he entered the house.
Hi Booker-T,” said Midge. “Are you ready to go to Jake's house?”
Yes” said Booker-T. “I want to go say hi to Snappy before we go.”
The two ran to the living room and Booker-T leaped into the chair and onto the tank.
Hi Snappy!” greeted Booker-T looking down into the tank.
HI Booker-T,” smiled Snappy. “What are you doing?”
Midge and I are going to Jake's house in the snow,” said Booker-T.
It is too cold out there,” said Snappy.
I know,” said Booker-T. “And there is a lot of snow on the ground, but people got all the snow off the sidewalks so it is only cold and wet right now.”

The Stranger at the door

Hi Midge,” said Jake as he crawled through the doggie door into the kitchen at Midge's house.
Wow!” Exclaimed Midge. “You are here early this morning. My owner just left for work.”
I know,” said Jake. “I was sitting out there in the dark waiting for her to leave.”
Why?” asked Midge. “Is everything all right? You don't usually come this early.”
Everything is fine,” said Jake. “My owner left early today for her job and I wanted to come over here to say hi to Snappy and got tired of just sitting at the house alone.”
So you sat outside alone in the dark?” said Midge.

Midge Tries to Fly

 “Good morning Midge,” smiled Gabby as he flew down from the tree tops with a beak full of feathers.
“Hi Gabby,” said Midge. “Oh, you brought me some feathers.”
“I did and my friend is here too with some more,” said Gabby. “Where are Jake and Booker-T?”
“They should be here soon,” said Midge.
“And how are you going to put the feathers on?” asked Gabby. “I don't have anything to attach them with.”
“Oh dear,” sighed Midge. “I forgot about that. I don't know how to attach them.”
“You were only thinking about flying,” said Gabby. “But you can't try to fly until you attach the feathers to you.”

The Funny Balls

 Midge ran up to the door at Booker-T's house. “Hey Booker-T!” called Midge. “Where are you?”
“Hi Midge,” said Booker-T as he hurried out of the backyard and joined Midge in the front. “What are you doing?”
“Lets go to Jake's,” said Midge.
“Okay,” said Booker-T.
“What were you doing?” asked Midge.
“I was watching the neighbor boys playing in the back yard,” said Booker-T.
“What are they doing?” asked Midge.
“They are throwing a funny looking ball back and forth and sometimes it breaks and they get wet,” said Booker-T. “Then they laugh and laugh and do it again.”
“Can we go see?” asked Midge. “That sounds like fun.”

The Noisy Machine

“Hi Jake,” said Midge as Jake came into the yard at her house. “You are here early today. Did you sleep last night?”
“Ha ha,” smiled Jake. “I slept. My owner is cleaning house today and it is too noisy so took walk.”
“She makes a lot of noise when she cleans?” asked Midge with a puzzled look.
“Does your owner use one of those noisy things in the house when she cleans?” asked Jake.
“What noisy thing?” asked Midge.
“She is cleaning the floor,” said Jake. “She has one for the carpet and one for the tile floors that gets the floor wet.”
“My owner uses something called a vacuum cleaner when she cleans in the living room,” said Midge. “But she don't use a different one for the floor in the kitchen.”

Booker-T Wants a Sweater

Hey Midge!” called Jake as he hurried into the house. “Where are you? I came to see Snappy.”
Hi Jake,” replied Midge. “Snappy will be happy to see you. Did you see Booker-T when you came into the yard?”
No,” said Jake. “I thought he might already be here. He said he wanted to see Snappy this morning too.”
I haven't seen him yet today,” said Midge.
I see you have your new collar on this morning,” said Jake.
Do you like it?” asked Midge as she pranced back and forth flipping her head.
It is pretty, Midge,” said Jake. “But is it bothering you?”

The Strange Tube

The friends were on their way home from the park and saw an eagle and remembered watching one in the bird show. . They hurried along the sidewalk.
Wasn't it a good show when we went?” asked Gabby. “I sure liked all the birds and those eagles are so amazing.”
It was good show and some of the birds were really big,” said Midge. “I think some of them could have picked me up off the ground.”
Maybe even me,” laughed Jake.
I don't think so,” said Susie. “You are too big for them to pick up.”
Maybe,” said Jake. “I don't think I want them to try it.”
Hey, look over there guys,” said Booker-T. “What is she doing?”
