Bassa was here!

I have just returned from my afternoon walk. No stray dogs today, which was a relief, but there were lots of stray little people. The tall person explained that technically they weren’t strays because they had homes to go to. He said that little people often return home from school in packs but it was nothing to worry about.

Anyway, we met a very nice pack of stray school children who stopped to talk with me. When the tall person told them that he is English they all began practising the English words that they had learned in school. It was very lovely and very funny and when we left them we could hear them shouting “Goodbye” and “Bye bye” all the way down the street!

Shortly after we had said goodbye to the pack of little people I found a patch of soft, cool mud. Of course I trod in it and left my paw print. The tall person told me that film stars and other famous people sometimes leave their hand prints on the sidewalks to show everyone that they have been there.

Wow! Does this mean I’m famous?

P.S. The tall person said he likes the two heart shaped leaves next to my paw print.

The writing is on the wall

When I came back from my walk this morning I noticed that someone had drawn a picture on the wall of one of the houses in my street. It is a picture of a house and a car. The house has a smoking chimney and a long driveway.

The tall person said this picture was probably drawn by a little person as it is not high up the wall. He told me that children often draw pictures of houses and especially their own home as this is the place where they feel safe and happy. Yes tall person, I feel the same way about my home.

I think it is a lovely picture and I hope it stays there so that everyone can enjoy it and be reminded that our home is where our heart is.
