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,
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
I have missed you so much, you've been gone hours-weeks-days-years! And so
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
Darn. Oh, I cannot be
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!!!.
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. . .
