My Humans – PDF download of the story
Dedicated to my grandfather, Happy Father’s Day 2017!
My humans want to hear more.
By the request of one of my humans, the tale shall continue. I suppose I cannot blame them. They spend an extensive amount of time talking on and on to other humans about me. It’s only fair I return the favor. Ahem. Where to begin. Ah!
My humans have delicious smelling food.
Most of the time I must settle for only smelling the delectable morsels, and imagining the divine taste. But sometimes, sometimes they share with me. My humans will put scrumptious meat on top of my kibble, which makes a tasty treat.
My humans have this wonderful creation called ice cream.
Not human ice cream, but special ice cream just for me. In these summer months, it is especially delicious… at least until I start making myself cold. I tried to give my humans a dirty look as they laugh, but then they curl up with me until I’m warm again so I cannot complain.
My humans need protected.
This is an extraordinarily important fact. They let all sorts of strange humans, and those odd contraptions they call cars, near my territory without a care. Of course, I put a stop to that right away you can believe me. I make sure that my humans know about these trespassers by barking to let them know they are unwelcome.
My humans have highly irregular methods of travel.
Speaking of those odd contraptions they call cars, they sometimes use them to disappear for hours at a time. I am left staring at the empty space, where the odd contraption used to be, wondering where they went. Other times, they pick me up and take me with them. Why on earth they cannot use their own legs to travel is beyond me. Nevertheless, it is nice to ride along with them on their travels.
Humph, my humans are easier to look after when they are in my territory.
