I hear it! I hear the car! HER car! And she's coming home!

Oh, oh, I must run and grab a gift! I must greet her with a gift!
Oh, ’BONK’ missed the step. No matter, I must hurry. Move over furniture!
She's coming, she's coming!
Gift, gift, where, what, oh, oh, oh, ah! A slobbery toy on my bed!  Oh, perfect.
She's coming, she's coming! Oh, oh, oh...
The door! I hear the door sound that sounds right before she comes in!

Oh, it's OPENING! SHE'S HOME!  Oh, oh, ’wiggle, wiggle, wiggle’ I cannot be still! You're home! And look, look, I have this nice slobbery toy for you! Oh, oh, you're home! YOU'RE HOME!

I have missed you so much, you've been gone hours-weeks-days-years! And so much
has happened! A squirrel ran by and I barked at him and chipmunks ran under the house and I barked at them and it rained a little and the telephone rang and the garbage man was here and I saw deer out the window and I barked at them and I protected everything!

Oh, oh, oh! You're home, you're home!   And you're petting me! I can't stand it, it's so marvelous! Oh, and you're speaking! “Murble, murble, good girl, murble, murble.”

YES! Your happy voice. Oh, I'm about to burst! I'm so happy, happy, happy!  Yes! I want to jump! I'm not supposed to jump, but oh, oh, just a little jump!


Darn. Oh, I cannot be still.

I'll roll over and wiggle on my back! Oh, yes! She's rubbing me–my tummy, my head, my sides! Oh, oh,oh.
Now what? Now where's she going? Oh, oh, yes! Back to the room where we sleep at night! Great! It has the big pad we sleep on and ’L–E–A–P‘ I can get up here close to her.  And here she comes!


Oh, oh, oh! I can stand on my legs and put my paws on the bed and–uh oh. Can't lick with this toy in my mouth. But it’s my present to her! Oh, oh, what to do? And she's rubbing me! But I want to lick her, oh, oh, I think I'm about to burst!


Oh, darn. Drop the toy. Oh, YES! She’s home!

She took off the pieces she puts on her feet, and I can jump and 'lick, lick' I love you, I love you, I love you, I love ’lick, lick, lick’ you taste so good, salty, sweet, I love that stuff you smear on your face every day, I love to lick it off, oh, oh, and you're rubbing me again!  I think I am going to burst!

My back, my head, my ears, oh, oh ’lick, lick, lick’. ”Murble, murble, good girl, murble, murble.”



I will lay here and watch her. She takes off her work skin.

And I will get that look on my face that always makes her come and rub me. The look where I roll my eyes up, and keep my head flat here and she will come...and she's putting on her play skin! YES! We will play!  My tail cannot be still. I am SO happy, happy, happy.


Now back to the room with the box that has pictures and sounds. Ah, I know what happens now. Yep, she's laying down on the big pad there. Now she'll rest. But that’s okay.

She's HOME!  SHE'S home. SHE'S HOME!!!.

And she smells tired. So I will lay beside her here and guard her and wait while she rests. And when she gets up she won’t smell so tired. And we'll play and play.  My ball!  My ball!  She will throw it and I will get it and she will throw it and I will get it. . . I can't wait!

S–i–g–h. I’ll just rest with her now, and smell her while she sleeps.  And wait again. For, the next thing that happens,

HE'LL be home!

And then, oh, oh, Oh, oh, I must run and grab a gift! I must greet him with a gift.  He's coming, he's coming!
Gift, gift, where, what, oh, oh, oh, ah! A slobbery ball on my bed!  Oh, perfect. . .
