Dog and Bear: Time to Eat

April 8, 2020
Camel following us from a Bedouin camp

Mom was soooo kind.

Dog and Bear now had the MOST PERFECT IDEA EVER dreamed up by anybody!

Then…

“Dog, Bear, it’s time to eat,” called out Mom.

“OK!  We’ll be right there,” they responded.

The only thing better than the MOST PERFECT IDEA EVER was FOOD!  They were starved, they just didn’t notice it because they were so busy with their research on the computer.

Dog and Bear ran through the house like a whirlwind and they were at the table in a flash.

“Wow!  You two must be hungry the way you got here in about ONE second!” exclaimed Mom.

“Yeh, I’m super hungry!” said Dog.

“Me too,” said Bear.  Then he got a little sentimental.  “Mom…”

“What is it Bear?”

“You’re the best cooker ever,” said Bear.

“Well, thanks.  I’m glad you think so,” said Mom.  She turned her head briefly because she was about to tear up.  Her Dog and Bear meant the world to her and they were like little gifts from heaven, even if they were a bit rowdy at times.

Dog and Bear: Lunch is Served

Dog had to get in on the “be nice” routine too.  With his recent disaster, he knew he needed to step up with some nice words.  So he said the first thing that popped into his head. 

“You know Mom, with all your curly hair you look really good, just like Aunt Lucy.”

“Well, thank you, Dog.  We are sisters you know.”

Enough of the small talk, it was time to eat!  They gobbled their food like they hadn’t had a bite to eat in 3 days.  Soon their little tummies were full, really full.

Dog and Bear did have great intentions.  They were going to begin work on the MOST PERFECT IDEA EVER.  But…

“I’m really tired,” yawned Bear.

“Me too,” replied Dog.

“Let’s just rest for a few minutes.  Then we can get started on our idea.”

“Yeh, I’m really tired.”

    I liked it when Dog thought that the dishes looked clean enough.

      Thanks for your comment. Dog is not always that careful. He usually is in a hurry and doesn’t always pay attention to little things – like – are the dishes clean.

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, it is nice to give compliments to Mom. They got caught up in their Candy Caper and making things right with Mom… their big idea got delayed. It will come soon.
