The New Park in Town

 “Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T came running into the gate at Jake's house.
“Hi Midge,” said Jake as he sat up. “Why are you two in such a hurry?”
“Guess what!” said Booker-T.
“It is so cool Jake,” said Midge. “It is so cool. You will like it.”
“It is exciting,” said Booker-T. “We just had to come and tell you about it.”
“Are you going to tell me what it is?' asked Jake.
“Oh yes,” said Midge. “I almost forgot.”
“We have a new park next door to the zoo,” said Booker-T.
“What kind of park?” asked Jake. “Why is it cool?”

Spring Cleaning

 “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he came strolling through the gate. “What are you doing?”
“I'm watching my owner,” said Midge.
“What is she doing?” asked Jake as he looked through the front window where Midge was looking.
“I think she's gone nutty,” sighed Midge.
“Oh my,” said Jake as he looked at Midge and then back into the house. “She sure is making a mess in there.”
“I know,” said Midge.
“Why?” asked Jake.
“I don't know,” said Midge. “I heard her tell her friend that she was going to do something called Spring Cleaning.”

An Old Friend Comes Home

“Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T strolled into the yard at Jake's house. “Where are you?”
“I'm back here in the back yard!” called Jake.
Midge and Jake ran around to the back yard and found Jake staring into the tree.
“What are you doing?” asked Booker-T.
“There is a little animal in the tree,” said Jake.
“What kind of animal?” asked Midge looking up into the tree trying to see what Jake was looking at.
“I'm not sure,” said Jake. “I thought it was a cat, but I can only see that he is brown.”
“Hello,” called Midge as she placed her front paws on the tree. “Who are you?”
“Why are you waking me up?” asked a voice from in the trees.

Flowers on the Wall

   “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he strolled up the sidewalk to the front porch. “Where are you?”
  Jake sat staring at the door and listened.  Midge didn't come out like she usually did when he calls.  He called again.  “Hey Midge!”  
   Still no answer.  Jake ran to the back of the house and poked his nose through the doggie door.  There was Midge in the middle of the kitchen floor, dancing around strangely.  For a few minutes he just quietly watched.  Midge was chasing her tail like puppies do.  Eventually, Jake pushed his way into the kitchen.
    “What are you doing?” laughed Jake.  “And what is that on your back side?”
     “Can you pull it off me?” asked Midge.  “I can't get it off.”
     “Why are you wearing flowers on your back side?” asked Jake.
     “Isn't it pretty?” asked Midge.
     “It is nice,” said Jake. “But where did you get it?'
