The tall person surprised me today. He told me that someone hasn’t read my book, ‘Bassa’s World’. I thought he was joking but he shook his head sadly and told me that it was true. He patted my head and told me that there was probably a very good reason why someone did not want to walk with me in my world.
Feeling dejected, I found Barnaby and together we went to a corner of the yard to ponder.
We laid down in our favorite spot and decided to approach this sad news in a logical way and think of reasons why someone did not want to walk with us in our world.
After thinking for a while, Barnaby suggested that the person who has not read ‘Bassa’s World’ cannot read. Hmm. That could explain it but the book does have lots of lovely pictures. Barnaby agreed, so we crossed off that reason from our mental list.
Barnaby scratched his head with his paw. He always does that when he is thinking hard. Perhaps they can read he suggested but can’t read English. Hmm. That is a good point Barnaby. I do have friends in countries where English is not the main language. But the book does have lots of lovely pictures.
Barnaby curled up against me. The warm sunshine was making him sleepy.
I gave him a gentle nudge with my nose and asked him to keep thinking. He yawned and stretched and said that perhaps the person has been very busy and has not had time to walk with me in ‘Bassa’s World’.
Hmm. That must be it. My friends do lead very busy lives. I am sure that is the reason why someone hasn’t walked with me in ‘Bassa’s World’.
I stood up, relieved by this conclusion.
I could hear the tall person person calling me. It was time for our walk through the neighborhood. I am lucky, I get to walk in my world every day.
Barnaby smiled and curled up in the sunshine.
