“What are you reading, Mom?”

“You’ll never guess!”

“Try me. My mind is supple, you know.”

“This year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is allowing mixed breeds into a special category!”

“Hee, hee, hee! Well, it’s about time!”

“The world keeps changing, for sure!”

“Hey, Mom! Can we go? I’m a Defiance Crescent-News Pet Parade winner, you know!”

“Oh, little girl dumplin’, I know. And you won Best Curly Tailed at the Bark for a Park event, as well. But this involves travel costs and registrations and agility competition, events for which we’ve never trained you.”

“Oh.”

“I know. Bummer. But we can watch on TV –”

“Geez, Mom. You always say I could pull a sled.”

“Well, you could, too, but this event is just not your cup of bones.”

“Well, I’ll get a new chewy bone when we watch on TV, won’t I?”

“You surely will!”

“With peanut butter.”

“Of course…”

“Okay, then. As long as I’m with you, Mom. Yum, this old chewy is still pretty good.”
