Booker-T hurried over to Midge's house so they could walk to Jake's house together.. He got to the gate and stopped and stared.. Midge was in the front yard acing strange. He just stood there watching her.
“Hey Booker-T,” called Midge as she turned and saw him standing at the gate. “What are you doing?”
“I was watching you,” smiled Booker-T. “What are you doing? You looked strange.”
“I was exercising,” said Midge.
“Exercising?” asked Booker-T. “I thought we exercised by running around the yard. What kind of exercising was that?”
“My owner was doing these last night,” said Midge.
“You look funny,” laughed Booker-T. “Those are human exercises aren't they?”

The Splash Party

“Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he strolled through the gate at Midge's house. “Where are you?”
He didn't hear her call back to him so he walked around to the back yard and poked his head into the doggie door and looked around the kitchen. He didn't see Midge.
“Hey Midge!” called Booker-T again. “Where are you?”
Still no sounds from inside. He crawled through the doggie door into the kitchen and walked to the living room where he greeted Snappy.
“Hey Snappy,” greeted Booker-T as he jumped into the chair next to the tank.
“Hi Booker-T,” smiled Snappy. “Are you looking for Midge?”
“Yes,” replied Booker-T. “Do you know where she is?”
“She is sleeping,” laughed Snappy.
“She never sleeps late,” said Booker-T with a worried look. “Is she sick?”

Where is Melody

“Hey Booker-T!” called Midge as she got to the gate.
“Hi Midge,” said Booker-T as he came from behind the house. “What are you doing?”
“Are you ready to go to Jake's house?” asked Midge.
“Sure,” said Booker-T. “Lets go and get Melody on the way. She wants to come along.”
“Okay,” smiled Midge.
They walked along the sidewalk toward Melody's house who lived around the block. They stepped onto the front porch and called out to melody.
“Melody!” called Booker-T. “Where are you?”
They stood staring at the door and waited. Melody didn't come outside. They ran to the back yard and poked their head in through the doggie door.
“Melody!” called Midge. “Are you in here?”

 “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he poked his head through the doggie door in the back of her house. “What are you doing?”
“Hi Jake,” smiled Midge.
Jake squeezed through the door and entered the kitchen. “Hi Booker-T.”
“Hi Jake,” said Booker-T.
“What are you two doing?” asked Jake.
“My owner went to work and left her coffee cup on the table,” said Midge.
“We were tasting the coffee,” said Booker-T. “Have you ever tasted coffee?'
“No,” said Jake. “Can I try some?”
“Sure,” said Midge, pushing the cup across the table to Jake. “Try it.”
Jake stuck his tongue into the cup to taste the brown liquid inside.

What Happened to Spring

Midge came dancing out of the bedroom, singing. “Good morning Snappy!”
“You are in a good mood this morning,” smiled Snappy. “What are you going to do today?”
“Jake, Booker-T and I are going to the park to swim in the pond,” smiled Midge. “It's going to be so much fun.”
“Maybe you should look out the window,” said Snappy.
“Why?” asked Midge as she jumped into the chair beside the tank and peered out the window..
“What do you see?” asked Snappy.
“Oh my goodness,” sighed Midge as she looked from the window to Snappy and back to the window. “When did that start?”
“It was doing that when I woke up this morning,” said Snappy. “Did you know it was going to do that?”
“No,” said Midge. “I thought we were done with snow. We can't swim in the pond with snow on the ground.”
