“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.”
