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?”
