Games Dogs Play

August 8, 2011  

Stubby lived his life on a chain until one day he broke free and ran away. A Good Samaritan found him and brought him to the shelter. Now his real story begins…

My new home is still awesome. We even have regular games we play!

It starts when Marnie wakes up. First, she goes to wake up Lily and Matt, who don’t want to get up, so they groan and turn over and go back to bed.

Then Marnie goes to the kitchen (this is where the game gets good.) I follow her because I know that she’ll give me the crusts of Lily’s toast.

Then she goes back to wake up Lily and Matt because they still haven’t gotten up.

This is where my part of the game comes in.

When Marnie looks at me and says “Stubby, do you want to go for a walk?”, that’s my cue. I run into Matt’s room and jump on the bed! Then when he bolts up I jump off and run into Lily’s bedroom and jump on her bed!

If Marnie starts clapping then I zoom back and forth between Lily and Matt’s bedroom until they get out of bed and we all go on a walk.

I don’t know why Lily and Matt don’t want to get up, but I’m pretty sure it’s because they want to play the game with me every day. I have the best family, ever.
