Mom wouldn’t tell me where we were going. She said it was a surprise. I didn’t care where we went, I just wanted to be with my mom. Just me and her. Lately she’s had to spend a lot of time with the other dogs. She says I have more confidence and I’m not so needy. When somebody has to stay behind to babysit the new dog, it’s usually me.
We took off early. It was already sunny. After a few hours we came to a fairgrounds. There were horses and other dogs and then I saw him – my little brother Zag! We started yipping and jumping and carrying on. The people around us were laughing.
Before I knew what was happening we were in the car together. There was a lake and we got to play ball and swim for hours. It was so much fun.
People say Zag and me are like twins. I don’t know. He has a longer nose and is scared of laundry. I’m more stocky and am scared of sudden noises. We’re both pretty easy going.
Zag got on the wrong side of Tess last time he stayed with us. We got to get that worked out next time he comes to visit.
I gotta show you one last picture. Zag has this tiny little brother named Rhett. Here he is at the lake with us. He’s small but he’s brave. He even went swimming when his mom put him in the water. Maybe we can find him a little ball he can fetch.
When we were so tired we could hardly swim anymore, Zag and Rhett went back to the fairgrounds and I rode home with Mom. We stopped and got me a burger – no onions. I slept until the car pulled into the driveway. The other dogs sniffed me all over. They knew I’d had a special day. In fact, it was magic. I’ll remember this day for a long time. See ya.
