I hear it! I hear the car! HER car! And she's
coming this way!
Oh, oh, I must run in and grab a gift! I must greet her with a gift!
Oh, BONK missed the step. No matter, I must hurry. Move over, doggy door!
She's coming, she's coming!
Gift, gift, where, what, oh, oh, oh, ah! A plastic bottle she drinks from, right here on
the container they call trash! 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 bottle! 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 dog ran by and I chewed a tree and Pluto slept under the house and it
rained a little!
Oh, oh, oh! You're home, you're home!
And you're touching me! I can't stand it, it's so marvelous! Oh, and you're speaking!
Murble, murble, good boy, 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 memy 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 LEAP 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 around her neck anduh oh. Can't
lick with this bottle in my mouth. But its 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 bottle. Oh, YES! Shes coming back!
She took off the pieces she puts on her eyes, and I can stand 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!
My back, my head, my ears, oh, oh lick, lick, lick. Murble, murble,
Mickee, good boy, murble, murble.
I will lay here and watch her. Watch her peel her furitsnot. It is very
warm. I dont know because I dont think. How does she do that?
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 playsometime. My tail cannot be still. I am SO happy, happy,
Now shes going in the room with the wonderful water bowl! I LOVE that water bowl
always cool, clean water! She'll be out in just a minute, just a minute, just
a.....yes, she's coming! She's here again.
Oh, oh, oh....
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 sleep. But thats okay.
And she smells tired. So I will lay beside her here and guard her and wait while she
sleeps. And when she wakes up she wont smell so tired. And we'll play and play.
Sigh. Ill 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, zzzzzzzzz........
