Was I ever sick today. First I had diarrhea in the backyard. Then I threw up all over the back seat of the car when we took Jamie to school. Mom said she was really glad she put a blanket down back there. (I tried to help Mom clean it up by eating the puke, but she wouldn’t let me.) Mom was really nice about the whole thing.
So I slept for most of the day. Mom went to the Liberry to work. She said she is “packing things up” and came home very, very sad. I was in my crate for a long time today since I wasn’t feeling so good. Mom and Jamie went out, but I didn’t really mind since I was just sleeping anyway.
When they came home, my stomach was feeling better, and I was tail-wagging again. They made a really big deal about me. Later on, a huge thunderstorm hit. Bigger than the one we had last night! My humans got ready with flashlights in case the power went out. The thunder was very loud and the lightning was very bright. I didn’t like it at all, and I barked and barked to tell it to stop. The wind was so strong that the trees were bending over and some guy’s car down the street was making beeping noises. My ears hurt. I put my tail between my legs and dragged my blanket out from my crate and tried to dig myself underneath it.
Then Dad came home. I was so happy to see him, I jumped up high and fell on my back. But I was OK, and I didn’t care. I was just relieved to see him. The next time I looked out the window, all the rain was gone and the night was perfectly clear with the moon shining and the trees standing straight and tall. I know it’s because Dad came home. Dad makes everything better.
