This week, I travelled throughout Colorado. I performed in some amazing places that promote reading to kids! When I performed at the Kiowa library, I noticed how fun their carpet was in the Children’s area. It had books on it and worms. I enjoyed rolling on it!
I also performed at a brand new Library! The town of Hudson built an amazing new library that reflects the town’s love of reading, community, and those young people—kids and teens! I was intimidated by THE HULK, though! But I was pretty sure that in my Super Dog costume, I’d be able to calm him down with a tale or two.
In addition to those country places, I also travelled to the big city—Denver. I love performing for the Arapahoe Library district. They treat me so nice (both the librarians and the audiences), plus I have a fan base. The audiences at the Arapahoe Library district make me feel like a super star!
We (my upright and I) performed some of my favorite tales this week. I love telling stories about true dog heroes! Their heroic deeds inspire me which is why I protected our property from a loud, high-pitched mini-tank today!
After I ran four miles with my upright this morning, I still had energy. I am a Border Collie, you know. Fortunately, one of the neighbors began to ride around his yard in this loud, high pitched mini-tank. I remembered reading stories about tanks when we researched WWII. Okay, my upright calls it a “Lawn Mower,” but I think of it as a mini-tank. It whirs, it grinds, it even spits out green stuff! Come on, it must be a tank!
Because I chased it back and forth inside my fence, my upright forced me to go inside. She was worried I might pull a muscle and she thought I needed water (which I forget to drink when I’m so focused on herding a mini-tank). I had a difficult time “resting,” because I think our neighbor must be an enemy! I promise to be like my favorite war dog hero from WWI and protect our property! I shall guard it day and night.
Can you guess who my favorite war dog hero is from WWI? He’s very famous and is even featured in the WWI museum. There’s even a fun kid’s book about him. If you guess correctly, I’ll send you an autographed picture of my super gorgeous fluffy face!
