Sharkey's Secret Sycamore
Posted by Sharkey
Franny had an appointment yesterday and I found myself all alone. Instead of moping around, waiting for her to get back, I took advantage of the situation and went out to explore something I had seen on the farm.
1 Hmmm... Francesca's at a checkup and this is a perfect opportunity to go out and explore that special tree way over yonder.
2 I don't want Francesca to know! This will be my very own secret spot.
3 Every dog needs her or his own special secret place to get away from it all for quiet contemplation.
4 Now, which way was it?
5 Oh right - it's this way.
6 Here it is! The ancient hollowed-out sycamore tree. This is where I'll have my hideout.
7 It's quite large inside and there are some very special features.
8 For instance, if you look up you can see...
9 that someone once hammered rungs to make a ladder. It goes way up high to a hole where you can spy from. Totally cool!! Now, if I could just reach the first rung.
10 There's even a peek hole in the back to see people approaching or to make a quick getaway.
11 After visiting this great place, I feel restored and at peace. Now I just have to figure out how to keep Francesca in the dark.
