Sensing a Stranger at the Farm
Posted by Francesca
The other day, I got a whiff of something strange at the farm, like the presence of an alien creature. Then, I saw a flash of an auburn color out of the corner of my eye and I realize that there was an alien creature at the farm!!
1 Sharkey! I spotted some auburn fur outside! At first I thought it was GK, but he's fast asleep in the kitchen! Let's go to the brown room and look out of those windows.
2 Why Francesca, you're right! There's another dog on the property! I'll just stand here at the window and bark loudly and incessantly!
3 Who is that large dog? Did Martha get another without telling us? I can't imagine having to get used to another dog!
4 I don't think Martha would do such a thing. It is curious though...the dog appears to be a golden retriever. What do we know about that breed?
5 Golden retrievers were originally kept as companion animals by hunters. Hunters would shoot fowl and their trained dogs would retrieve the unfortunate feathered creatures, hence the breed name.
6 They are very intelligent and are often used as guide dogs. They are also very loyal to their owners. Let's look around, Francesca. Maybe this one's owner is nearby.
7 Oh Sharkey, now I recognize that dog! It's our pal Dodi!
8 Dodi is Alex's dog. Alex cares for Martha's house in East Hampton. Oh Franny, it's just been such a long time since we last visited! I miss those summer days by the beach.
9 Hey there, Frenchies! I've missed you two in East Hampton, so I thought I'd come visit you for a change! But, Sharkey, do you think you could stop your barking already?
