Oh, oh, oh! You're home, you're home!
And you're touching me! I can't stand it, it's so marvelous! Oh, and
speaking! "Murble, murble, good boy, murble, murble."
YES! Your happy voice. Oh, I'm about to burst! I'm so happy, happy,

Darn. Oh, I cannot be still.
I'll roll over and wiggle on my back! Oh, yes! She's rubbing me–my
head, my sides! Oh, oh,oh.
Now what? Now where's she going? Oh, oh, yes! Back to the room where we
sleep at night! Great! It has the big pad we sleep on and ’L–E–A–P‘ I
get up here close to her.
And here she comes!
Oh, oh, oh! I can stand on my legs and put my paws around her neck
oh. Can't lick with this bottle in my mouth. But it’s my present to
oh, what to do? And she's rubbing me! But I want to lick her, oh, oh, I
think I'm about to burst!
Oh, darn. Drop the bottle. Oh, YES! She’s coming back!
She took off the pieces she puts on her eyes, and I can stand and

My back, my head, my ears, oh, oh ’lick, lick, lick’. "Murble, murble,
Mickee, good boy, murble, murble."
I will lay here and watch her. Watch her peel her fur–it’s–not. It is
warm. I don’t know because I don’t think. How does she do that?
And I will get that look on my face that always makes her come and rub
The look where I roll my eyes up, and keep my head flat here and she
come...and she's putting on her play skin! YES! We will play–sometime.

Now she’s going in the room with the wonderful water bowl! I LOVE that

minute, just a.....yes, she's coming! She's here again.
Oh, oh, oh....
Now back to the room with the box that has pictures and sounds. Ah, I
what happens now. Yep, she's laying down on the big pad there. Now
sleep. But that’s okay.
And she smells tired. So I will lay beside her here and guard her and
while she sleeps. And when she wakes up she won’t smell so tired. And
play and play.
S–i–g–h. I’ll just rest with her now, and smell her while she sleeps.
And wait again. For, the next thing that happens, HE'’LL be home.
And then, oh, oh, zzzzzzzzz........
