Digging the Pond

 “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he came running through the gate. “Where are you?”
“Good morning Jake,” smiled Midge. “You are early this morning. Booker-T and I were going to come to your house soon.”
“I know,” said Jake. “My owner left for work early this morning so I came over here.”
“It's good to see you early,” said Midge. “My owner hasn't left yet to go to work.”
“I see the car,” said Jake. “Do you think she will care if I am over here with you?”
“Oh no,” said Midge. “But when she comes out the door, hide by the tree over there.”
“You want me to hide?” asked Jake. “Why?”

Snappy Visits With Friends

Booker-T ran over to Midge's house and slipped into the house through the back doggie door.
“Hey Midge!” called Booker-T. “Where are you?”
“Hi Booker-T,” greeted Midge as she entered the kitchen. “What are you doing?”
“I saw your owner leave so came to see Snappy,” said Booker-T.
“Snappy will enjoy seeing you, said Midge. “Come on.”
The two entered the living room and crossed the room to where Snappy's tank sat on the table in front of the window. The sun shone through the window and Snappy was sitting on top of the small log in his tank enjoying the sunshine. Booker-T leaped into the chair beside the tank and placed his paws onto the glass.
“Hi Snappy,” greeted Booker-T.

Bitsy and the Pond

The friends all hurried to the pond and Bitsy sat on a large branch that was coming out of the water onto the bank of the pond. Midge, Jake and Booker-T leaped into the water.
“Bitsy!” called Booker-T. “Come on in. The water is cool.”
“But I don't know how to swim,” said Bitsy.
“You didn't know how to fly and you did it,” said Jake.
“I think you birds swim automatically,” said Midge. “I think you just float.”
“I float?” asked Bitsy. I don't think so. My momma told me that ducks float. I'm not a duck.”

The Race

“Dummm di dummm,” sang Midge as she hurried along the sidewalk to meet Booker-T at his house and together they were going to Jake's house.
“Hi Midge,” said Booker-T as he came through the gate to join Midge on the walk to Jake's. “What are we going to do today?”
“I think we are going to the park for a little swim in the pond,” said Midge. “I think it is warm enough.”
“I think so too,” said Booker-T. “Too bad Snappy can't go with us. I wonder if he is missing the pond in the summer time?”
“I don't think so anymore,” smiled Midge. “He sure loves his nice inside home.”
“It is safer for him,” said Booker-T as they skipped along the sidewalk.
The two hurried around the corner and entered the front yard at Jake's house.
