Wow, March and April were two super sweet months. There were so many fun things that we did. Like Saint Patrick’s Day and Easter, but I’ll go in order; first things first.
My First Birthday
Yes, it’s official, I’m one. I celebrated my special day by going to Harris Teeter. While we were in the store I saw the deli station. Wait, that’s not right. I smelled the deli station: the ham, turkey, and oh sweet spicey pork! It was almost unbearable. If I didn’t know that Pal was counting on me, I don’t know if I could have taken it on! If that’s not bad enough we walked right passed the bakery! Have you ever smelled fresh scones? Because if you have, then you know the pain I was going through: cinnamon apple, lemon, and blueberry scones, and not one for me. Not even on my birthday. Then we went home and Pal made me delicious peanut butter homemade dog treats, which was better than any scone. We also took pictures, and it was a lot of fun.
In the beginning of March we went to Mount Vernon, George Washington’s house. In George Washington’s house, there was the original wood railing and steps which lead up to the second floor. Many of our presidents have all used this railing, as well as Pal and I. Yes, I actually walked where our first president did. It was awesome and it made me feel very important. George Washington was the first President of the United States of America, led our Country, and fought in the French and Indian war and the Revolutionary War. He sounded like a cool guy. I was hoping he could be my Veteran, but Pal told me that we were really just traveling back in time.
The house was lots of fun and they had the biggest backyard. I really wanted to play fetch, but we were Washington’s friends and guests so we had to stay on our best behavior; at least that’s what Pal told me. There were a few people in strange outfits talking about the history of Mount Vernon for a long, long time. Once we were done listening to him talk we decided to walk around and see the estate. We saw a garden, horse carriage, ice house, and the smoke house. Once again I smelled, oh, sweet country ham and pork.
After that we went into a museum about Mount Vernon and George Washington. We watched two movies and one even snowed on us. There were tons of statues that looked like Washington, but we met the real George Washington and his horse. All in all, I had a very nice time and I learned that Washington was a really thoughtful, generous, honest, and kind cool guy. And that it
is ok that he’s not going to be my Veteran, because whoever he or she is, they are going to be just as great of a hero as George Washington.
Saint Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick’s Day was full of adventure. We went to the grocery store and bought cute headbands. Pal and I looked awesome; well, at least I thought we did. Then we went into a jewelry store and looked around at so many shiny things I could not touch. After that we went to Pal’s grandparents’ house and played with their dog. It was a lot of fun!!!!!!! 🙂
For Easter we had a big egg hunt with candy galore. Once that was over we looked for the Easter baskets. In Pal’s basket there was even something for me, a headband with big pink floppy bunny ears, just like Pal’s! There also was a big party with many people. I was a good boy and I tried to be obedient. It was a lot a fun. All in all I had a lot of fun and I can’t wait to have another adventure with Pal and Buddy!
My Favorite Friends
Perhaps my best day was when I went to visit Joyce and Carrels. We had so much fun talking about family history and eating cookies. Well, I did not eat the cookies but by golly did I smell them: coconut, lemon, sprinkles – but that’s beside the point. After that I did a demo for them and showed some of my best friends my favorite skills. I can do down, stand, sit, back, take it, give, and brace. It was a lot of fun. I really hope I can see them again soon.
All in all, I had a wonderful two months and I can’t wait for another adventure with Pal and Buddy! 🙂
