“Alexa,” Mommis yells. “Turn the lights on.” I don’t know who Alexa is, because the only other people in the room are us, but whoever she is she does turn the lights on, and that startles us awake. I don’t know why Mommis persists in waking up so early.
I think that’s why Bruce doesn’t go with us. Sammy, of course, is just Mommis’s little shill and will go anywhere. I go, but often with a deep sigh, wishing she’d wait a little later.
It’s always good once we get out there, though. I love the park.
Mommis is hanging around with a new animal called a Shark. Me and Trina are trying to hide in Uncle Max’s room so it doesn’t get us but it keeps following us.
It makes a terrible loud noise and sucks up everything I was planning to pick up and eat myself. It’s eating all of our snacks.Mommis didn’t use to pal around with noisy animals. In fact, when we’re noisy she makes us be quiet. So how come this Shark gets special rules?
I denied it, but she didn’t believe me. I did eat the warranty from her new Snapchat spectacles. It fell on the floor and like there was. I couldn’t resist.
I have a new friend named Zoe. She’s a rottie and I went to her house for a play date this morning because we now have to walk on leashes in the park.
Yeah, we got busted by the same cop who always busts Mommis, even though the complaints are never about us. This time we think they were about Amy. Really they’re about a silly law.
But back to the good part: Zoe has something called a pool, which is a lot of water with steps going in. The water tastes funny when you drink it. Mommis walked into it with all her clothes on and when she said “come” I tried to follow her but something happened and all my legs went in different directions. Luckily Mommis held me underneath, because I was scared and wanted to run out.
I did run out, but then Zoe went in and a woman threw a ball. Zoe went after it and I watched how she moved her feet.So I tried the same thing, walking down the steps and moving my feet. And suddenly I was swimming AND fetching! It was so fun!
Also I was two shades whiter when I got out.
