Gulliver's Travails

One of my favorite bedtime stories is "Gulliver's Travels." You can tell from the cover of the book that it's the story of a man who ends up in a land of little people, who tie him down inside a big crate.



I guess my mom (Scoche) found out I liked this story a lot, because lately she's been acting it out for me. See?



What a great actress. And she gets those expressions just right! It's too bad she never learned to read, even though she went to school and majored in "sports medicine." You know how it is, though, sometimes athletic dogs like my mom go to school for the scholarship, but they never really complete the homework... if you know what I mean. ("Sports medicine." Right!)

But hey, I'm glad she at least learned to act, because I'm really enjoying these shows she's putting on! I'm sure they're even more fun to perform, although my mom assures me it's more work than I think.

Maybe some day I'll be an actress!

    Ahhh...Smarty. I so enjoyed spending time with you today. You are a delightful party hostess and have such impeccable manners. I appreciated that you cleaned up my granddaughters snacks off of the floor after she had finished with them. You will make a fine half-sister to all of your new siblings!

    Is your owner still speaking on that cell phone when she takes you on walks?

    Until next time...

    My dear sister Smarty:'
    Those little piglets are really starting to look like us! Are you sure they are just piglets?
    Love,

    I agree that they are looking less like guinea pigs these days. It's enough to make me wonder. However, they still squeal like little pigs... so I stand by my original assessment for now.
