Maybe a wake-up story instead of a bedtime story.
Scooter is eagerly awaiting the little squirrel’s departure from the tree, Jerome would be well advised to remove himself from the vicinity before reading that part.
Go on! You’ve got Remus all cranked up for a big finish. A Celebration. You can’t just leave him hanging. Throw him a bone, at least!
I don’t want to know the ending…sniff….
The book’s happy ending will be a sad ending for the listener (the dog).
The narrator should change the story to include how his dog could “help” the squirrel in its predicament.
…and we discover the tree is big enough for both of them and their friends….Today’s ‘Bliss’ comic happens to take the theme from here.
Scooter prefers the story about the overweight squirrel that can’t run very fast, but this one will do.
“Behindja! It’s a squirrel! Ha ha ha haaa ha…”
Scooter always gets excited at this part.
That book’s gonna get torn up!
Scooter thinks that it’s only right because of all the mean things the squirrel has been posting about him on Chitter…
It’s only a matter of time before people will buy virtual reality squirrel-chasing apps for their be-goggled dogs.
Of wild animals and pets: I was walking my cat one day. I was up on the road while she was temporarily on the other side of a hurricane fence paralleling my course along a creek bed. A lost fawn walked up to her and began following her as she edged warily away from it. My cat finally jumped onto the side of a pine tree and put it between herself and the fawn. The fawn came around the tree. There was a momentary tableau as the fawn stretched out its neck to sniff my cat, while my cat detached one fore claw and lifted it in preparation to strike.
“Hold it! I don’t think we want to do this.” I said. My cat stood down. The fawn turned away and walked into the trees, still lost.
Of course, it was the one day of the month I had not brought my camera. :)
