Are We Going to the Zoo

“Hey Jake,” said Booker-T. “Here comes the train driver I think.”
“That's the engineer,” said Jake.
“Don't the engineer drive the train?” asked Midge.
“Yes,” said Jake.
“After he opens the door,” said Midge. “We can try to run to the back of the car and crawl under the seat.”
“Are you sure you want to go across town to the other zoo?” asked Jake. “Remember we might end up in the animal shelter and our owners will not be happy with us.”
“That would be bad,” said Midge. “Our owners would really be upset if they didn't know where we are.”

I Think I Can

 “I think we can, I think we can,” sang Midge as she strolled along the sidewalk to Booker-T's house. “I think we can, I think we can.”
“Hey there Midge,” smiled Booker-T as he came around the house. “What are you singing?”
“A little song from this movie my owner played for her nephew one day,” said Midge. “I think we can, I think we can. There is nothing we can't do.”
“I know you always try things,” said Booker-T. “Even if you can't do it, you try.”
“You never know until you try,” said Midge. “I think we can.”
“Oh no,” said Booker-T.
“Oh no, what?” asked Midge.
“What are you wanting to do that you think we can do?” asked Booker-T.
“Why do you think we are going to do anything?” asked Midge.
“Because I know you,” said Booker-T. “I think you want to try something and you think we can do it.”

 “Come on Jake,” said Midge. “I want to go see that funny looking animal in the other corner.”
“That's Porky,” said Andy. “He is different.”
“He looks like he is having a bad hair day,” laughed Midge. “Why is his hair sticking out like that?”
“I don't know,” said Andy. “I don't have any hair.”
“Why don't you have hair?” asked Booker-T.
“I don't know,” said Andy. “I look like I am wearing armour.”
“Why do you need armour?” asked Jake.
“I don't know,” said Andy. “I've never been in a fight before.”
“You are the first animal I ever saw with no hair,” said Midge. “Do you miss having hair?”
“I don't know,” said Andy. “I never had any.”

Trip to the Zoo

“Here I come to save the day!” sang Jake as he strolled along the sidewalk.
“Hey Jake!” called Booker-T as he ran to the fence to greet Jake. “What are you doing?”
“I'm on the way to see you and Midge,” said Jake. “Do you want to go the little zoo again today?”
“Oh yes,” said Booker-T. “That would be great. We haven't been there in a while. I wonder what animals are there now.”
Booker-T walked with Jake into Midge's yard. “Midge!” called Jake. “Where are you?”
“Midge!” called Booker-T. “Lets go inside through the doggie door and see Snappy while we are here.”
Jake and Booker-T ran around to the back of the house and met Midge coming through the door. “Hi you guys,” smiled Midge. “What are you doing?”
“We came to see you,” said Jake. “We want to go to the little zoo holding place again and see who is there now.”
“Do you want to go?” asked Booker-T.
