Dear People who are Friends of my Mama,
Today, I had a good day.
Today, I got two good meals. In the morning time, I got my new breakfast, which is OATMEAL plus YOGURT plus BANANA plus YELLOW OIL CALLED FLAXES.
I like it. Also I got an extra BANANA. I love them. A lot.
Later, we got in the car, my Girl, my Mama and me, SAM.
We went to the church. I did that before. I went with my Mama and she talked to people in her office. They petted me, and I mostly liked it. Some of them smelled funny to me, and some of them smelled very, very right.
Today was different. There were a lot of people. We went in the big room, and there were lots and lots of chairs, and lots of people came in, and a man I met on a different day came and played music on the music box thing with pedals.
I met a nice lady who said, "Molly!" but my Mama said, "This is Molly's brother, Sam." And the lady petted me.
A lot of people wanted to pet me. I let them.
Another lady asked if I could sing? She should know Molly was a special girl who sang. I bark, and only at home, and only when someone comes to the door. I would never bark at church. That would be RUDE. Molly's singing was NOT barking. She was never RUDE.
I miss Molly.
My Mama put on black clothes with a colored thing hanging around her neck. She sat in a chair while the music played and I went to a seat with my Girl. My Mama stood up and talked and EVERYONE listened.
Then music started again, and everyone stood up, holding black books, and I stood up, too. My mama stood next to me and showed me with her hand that I could sit, so I sat and she stood by me and sang a song while she held her book.
Later I went upstairs with my Girl and some other big children and they had "Sunday School." The teacher had pretty hair. I liked her. She talked about palms and how they get burned into ashes for Ash Wednesday.
After Sunday School, we went back to the big room, and people had snacks. My Girl and a Big Boy took me for a walk outside in case I needed to do Bidness. Two ladies who know a lot about dogs told my Girl to look for an UPRIGHT. They just don't understand. Doing Bidness outside the church would be VERY RUDE. I waited until home.
Then they had a meeting. I waited patiently by my Mama. I stood right next to her and looked very hard at a donut. If I slobbered, I'm sure you know why. Donuts are GOOD. A lady at church made them at her house. Finally, my Mama gave me some.
After church, we came home and took a long, long nap.
Then it was time for DINNER, the best meal of the day except for breakfast. Dinner is CHICKEN and RICE and CARROTS and OIL OF FISHES CALLED SALMONS.
Now we are having snows and waiting for our Boy to come home. He came home and went away, and he's coming home and then tomorrow he's going away. He confuses me. I like when he plays the black stick that makes music.
I hope he gets here soon, because I like to go to sleep early, but not until the family comes in and locks the door.
I hope you had a good day. Did you go to church?
