More Dog Adventures in Maine
Posted by Sharkey
While we were at Skylands, our home in Maine, Martha did a lot of Entertaining. I like to sit below her while she is eating, in hopes that she might share with me. Oh well, I guess it is a little obnoxious, but isn’t that what dogs are supposed to do? When it became apparent that she wasn’t in the sharing mood, I suggested that Francesca and G.K. join me for an outing into town.
1 Aw, come on, Martha! Can't you drop me just a tiny morsel of your lunch? It smells so good.
2 Sigh, not even one tidbit! I guess Pierre's peekytoe crab salad is just too good to share with the likes of us.
3 Come on, Francesca! Let's grab GK and go out on the town. We need to find something constructive to do!
4 Ah, the lazy days of summer...you know what, Franny and GK? Why do we have to be such lazy dogs? Maybe we should get summer jobs! Let's go check out the shops and see if anyone is hiring!
5 Hi boys! Francesca, GK, and I are looking for some summer jobs. Can you point us in the right direction?
6 Sharkey, how about this shop called Winter's Work? There's something about it that gives me a good feeling.
7 No wonder we had a good feeling about this shop, Sharkey! It's owned by Sue Hill, whose son, Peter Jones, is Martha's property manager at Skylands!
8 And this is Peter's wife, Marla! Franny, Peter knows how hard-working we are. Do you think he'll put in a good word for us?
9 Sharkey, you and I would be good at this job. The shop sells a selection of gifts and crafts, many from local artists. Why, I'd say this is right up our alley!
10 Hmm, Francesca, I'd say that with Peter's mother, his wife, and his two sons, Zachary and Lucas, already helping in the shop, there probably aren't any positions open for us. Maybe we should stick to being lazy customers!
