Opie here! You all must know that it’s sometimes hard being the only doggy in the house. The family goes off to some event and leaves you at home for hours. It is a little annoying to be left out of the fun, especially when it involves
BALLS! LOTS AND LOTS OF BALLS!
My hu-brothers were at their school’s Hoop-a-thon! They raise money for their school by shooting lots of baskets. People pay by the basket! Last year they bought new uniforms for the teams and stuff like that.
I wish I could have gone. I think I could make a basket. I can fly through the air and DUNK! Like a DUNKIN’ MACHINE!
I can nose dribble, and in a game I’m good at tripping up the other guy.
My hu-brothers agree that I have SPEED! AGILITY! HEART!
THIS SNORKIE CAN JUMP!
Maybe because I am such an AWESOME BUT
UNDER APPRECIATED PLAYER
My hu- brother let me wear his Hoop-A-Thon Medal.
I think I look quite snazzy. Mama just needs to sew up the ribbon so that it will fit me properly. (I love the fact that I can probably chew the medal a little bit if it dangles down a bit, but don’t tell Michael that!)
Maybe we should have our own DOGGY–THON! I know some of you don’t have my MAD BASKETBALL SKILLS, so maybe we could make it something that every four legged FIDO can participate in. How about a Doggy FETCH-A-THON! We don’t have to limit it to Balls. It could be anything you like to fetch – balls, Frisbees, sock monkeys, stuffed squirrels. We could have it in a big green sunny dog park! Ahhhh! Sounds like heaven doesn’t it?
I’m going to talk to Mama about this. There are so many good causes to raise money for!
BEST OF ALL – we could have neat medals for our participation! And think of the treats!!!
What do you say doggers?
Gotta run! Michael wants to shoot some HOOPS with me! I have to be gentle and not beat him TOO badly. He is my LITTLE hu-brother!
Grins and Licks Fellow Doggers!
