This last week, I travelled to Pueblo to perform my Brave Dog show for their libraries. I even visited a library named Barkman! I entered the Barkman library and expected it to be staffed by Border Collies like me, Poodles, and some German Shepherds, but I was the only dog there. They did have some cute stuffed dogs located on a shelf. I really, really wanted to play with the Collie, but I wasn’t allowed. After our show, my upright (Denise) and I visited the Barkman park. We had a picnic under a canopy of trees. I rolled in the cool grass, watched bugs crawl, and listened to birds sing.
While in Pueblo, we also visited their beautiful new library branches, the river walk in Pueblo, and several more parks. It was fun performing in Pueblo. I enjoyed sharing my stories with the enthusiastic audiences.
But I also saw a dragon while in Pueblo. He was black with red. Flames shot from his nostrils! He hissed and snarled. I tried to run away from him, but my upright hung on to my leash. She wasn’t scared of the huge dragon, but she should have been. Doesn’t she realize that dragons enjoy eating uprights? Dragons often kidnap female uprights and add them to their horde of gold! The dragon hung in the air, floating on his hot breath. My eyes were round with fright. My upright told me, “Sienna, be brave. Remember you’re performing stories about heroic dogs! Find your inner hero.”
I faced the dragon. I wanted to run, but I thought I should show the dragon my teeth and then growl at it. I can’t allow a dragon to steal my upright. After all, who will feed me my dinner if she becomes a dragon snack?
My upright sighed, and said, “Sienna, that’s not a dragon. It’s just a hot air balloon.”
Humans always think they know everything, but I’m telling you that it was not a hot air balloon; it was a dragon. A big round fire-breathing dragon that wanted me for a snack. My upright claims I have an overactive imagination... But when the dragon coats her with barbeque sauce and roasts her with his fire, she’ll know dragons are real!
This week’s question should be easy for you! Here it is, “Do you have a favorite story about a dragon? Tell me the title and author of the story in the comment section.” Help me overcome my fear of Dragons with some good books to read!
