It's Halloween. Everbody has dey costume ready.  Sum costumes are better den udders.  I asked mommy if I could get a super hero costume.  I thought maybe I could be Super Poodle or sum tin like dat.  She said dat she already bought my costume and dat I was gonna go as a Maine Lobstah.  I was not happy.  Mostly da reason I wanted to go as a super hero was dat I thought I would has more courage and not be fraid when da twik or tweeters came round da house.  I can get fraid of stuff like thunderboomers and fireworks and sum times even da wind can makes me run for cover.  I thought if I had a Super Poodle costume, I would not be fraid on Halloween.  I really wanted to look like I has lots of courage.

I told mommy I was worried bout dis and she said sumtin I didn't understand at first.  She said I didn't need to has a super hero costume to not be fraid.  She said lots of people don't has super hero costumes but dat dey was super heros anyways.  At first dis not makes any sense to me at all.  I wundered how can yoo be a super hero wifout a super hero costume?  Mommy said dat lots of people has courage.  She said dat its sumtimes da kind of courage yoo can neva see. I was thinking what kind of courage it could be dat yoo don't eva see and how dat gonna protect me?

Mommy explained to me dat der is da kind of courage likes a person who is vewy sick wif cancer and has to go get a medicine called chemotherapy. She said dey has lots of courage. She said der is peoples who has sum one dey love die and dey feels so sad but dey keeps going.  Mommy said dey has lots of courage too.  She said it takes lots of courage to sum times let go of sum thing or sum one yoo love to lets dem be free even tho it hurts yoo lots.  Dat takes lots of courage mommy said.

Da more I thoughts about what mommy said da more I realized dat I could be courageous too.  I just has to be good and kind and loving ever day.  Now when I looks around I can imagine lots and lots of courageous peoples around me even wifout da super hero costume.

I guess being a Maine Lobstah isn't so bad afta all.

The Power of Love


Mommy lets me tweet.  Dis wasn't always da case.  I am five years old now and we has had compooters in da house for awhile but I never went near them.  Da only time I was even a little interested was when mommy was on da compooter for awhile and I wanted her attention.  I wood jump up in her lap while she was typing.  I didn't understand what she was doing but it seemed important and fun.  Afta while I asked her if maybe I could twy to type too.  My paws is a little big but I was sure I could do it.  She said I could type on Twitter if I wanted to, she called it tweeting.  Dis sounded really good and so I began tweeting at da beginning of da summer.  I was so supwised to find so many udder doggies, kitties, rabbits and bears tweeting too.  Oh dis was wunderful because now I was gonna has my own furriends.  I met so many wunderful "anipals" on Twitter.

One of da special anipals was Petie da cat. (@Petiethecat - dats his name on Twitter if yoo wants to go find him).  I started to be furriends wif Petie and soon I found out dat he didn't feel too good.  He was going to da vet to get better but it was worrying his mommy and daddy so much.  Some of da udder anipals thought it wood be good to spend some time on Petie's porch waiting for him to come home from da vet and to see how he was doing.  Afta while it became a regular thing dat us anipals wood go to Petie's family lake house on da weekends to be close to Petie and to make him feel better and hopefully help him heal.

Weekend afta weekend during da summer we went to Petie's lake house and watched closely for anything we could do to help Petie get well.  Some of da things we did to help Petie get well was: waterskiing, mousemallow eatin, campfire cooking, hot balloon riding, canooing, kite flying, speedboat and sailboat riding, eating all day and all night, napping, telling ghost stories, singing campfire songs, swimming and even teaching some kitties how to swim too.  We set up tents and slept in our sleeping bags real close so we could stay warm and cuddly.  We had so much fun and wood send all our happy energy and love to Petie.  Before long Petie was getting better and better!  By da end of da summer Petie was feeling like his old self again.

We sent Petie love ever weekend.  I notice now dat my new furriends and me, we all send love to each udder ever day.  Imagine dat?  Dats a lesson for all of us to learn, hoomans specially. Da Power of Love is pwetty amazing I thinks.  I bet we could change da world if we sent love ever day out to ever one we knows.  I thinks we could heal lots of stuff, don't yoo thinks?

From Down Here

Animals spends lots of times on da floor.  We get to see lots of things from down here like bugs, dust, shoes, and or course toys.  I spend lots of time on da floor. Sometimes I sleep in my doggie bed and sometimes I just falls asleep on da carpet.  I likes to play a lot so I can get tired really quickly and falls asleep on da floor.  Lots of times I get lucky tho becuz I can sleep on da bed or da sofa too.  Mommy and daddy picks me up a lot and when dey do I gets to see things up high.  Oooh, I loves to be up high.  I can see so many things up high dat I can't see from da floor.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if hoomans could see what da world looks like from down here.  

I see on da teevee dat some people don't has a home and dey lives on da street or in a box on da sidewalk.  I know lots of kitties who likes to get inside da box and play but I thinks da people who lives in da boxes dey not playing.  

When yoo is close to da grownd I thinks yoo looks up a lot.  I thinks yoo can feel really lonely and little when yoo is on da grownd.  

Mommy and me, we talk about dis sometimes.  She says dat not everbody has a home likes I do.  She says dat sometimes people lives in dat box becuz dey don't has a place to sleep and keeps warm.  Mommy holds me real close when we talks like dis.  It makes me feel safe.  I loves dat I has a home and hoomans dat care of me.  I wish everbody could has dat too.

Maybe dats why peoples likes animals so much.  Animals understand what it feels like to be little and close to da grownd always looking up.

I twy now to thinks about dis more.  I close my eyes and say a pwayer dat da peoples who lives in da boxes gets a good home likes me. And I hopes more hoomans will understand what it feels like from down here.
