Last week in The Days of Our Nine Lives, a new ARF dog joined the ranks, and two kittens left to become forever family members.
Traveler: (aside) Hey, Girlie. Come here.
Girlie Girl: What is it?
Traveler: Just when we canines were building a presence here at ARF, it happened. Kayla got adopted!
Girlie Girl: Well, that’s great, yes?
Bobbie: Traveler doesn’t think so. He hates being so outnumbered by us cats.
Traveler: Hey, I like cats. But I like my fellow dogs, too.
Steve: Where did Kayla go?
Traveler: She’s now with a very nice family in Murietta.
Steve: Cool. Did you see the new cats?
Traveler: I heard about ‘em. Relax, Bobbie, they’re not kittens.
Bobbie: Thank goodness for small favors. What do you know about them, Steve?
Steve: Wait here. I’ll go get them. (takes off running to find the cats)
Traveler: Girlie, have you lost more weight?
Girlie Girl: (blushing) Why yes, I have. I’ve now lost a total of 13 pounds!
Steve: (returning with two cats in tow) Hey everyone! This is Binky and this is George. Introduce yourselves, guys.
Binky: Well, uh, I’m a girl, and, uh, I am about 6 years old.
I am friendly and love to be petted.
Steve: Cool. And George?
George: Hey. Howya doin? I’m, obviously, a guy. I really love the sunshine, and if there is a mouse in your house, he won’t be for long! Ha!
Girlie Girl: Welcome! You’re both really pretty.
George: Pretty? Did you say I’m pretty?
Girlie Girl: Oh, George. You’re pretty handsome!
