“Oh man, today was fun. Every day is fun, but today was especially fun.
“After breakfast Mom took us to the park. At first it was just me and Greta. We had to bark at a bunch of people who kept walking by. Just walking by our park, can you imagine?
“And then a giant dog came to play with us. But he didn’t even play. He just stood there. His Dad told him to sit. And he didn’t.
“But I did! I did the nicest sit you ever saw and the man didn’t even notice.
“This giant dog is two and a half years old, he couldn’t even sit. And he’s scared of us.
“He jumped up on the bench even.
“Then some more big dogs came and we had so much fun. Except once three of them got too close and Greta screamed. I tell her, it’s better just to run. We can run faster than them. Just zip under their legs. It’s nice being small.
“Maybe we’ll understand that when we’re bigger. We won’t get bigger, but we’ll bet more grown up. And then we’ll understand. Learning is like that. You have to be patient. I used to pee in the house and now I pee outside. Mostly. My mom is very patient. Mostly. But if I even think about peeing in the wrong place, she can move so fast. Even as fast as us.
“The dog park is so fun.
“The park really is my favorite. Except for chewing on pens and pencils.
“In fact, I’m going to go chew a pencil right now.
“Please don’t tell my mom.”
