Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” Little Girl introduced Goldie, the newest ARF dog.
Anabel: Where’s Little Girl? I need to ask her about Bodie. Haven’t seen him this week.
Little Girl: (entering the cattery) I heard my name, and I have news to share.
George: I figured you did!
Little Girl: Bodie has a forever home! He’s so happy.
Goldie: Aw, I’m going to miss him. I love playing with other dogs.
Little Girl: Well, you’ve got us! And you like cats, don’t you?
Goldie: Yeah, cats are fine, but I really love playing with dogs.
Anabel: What about the kittens? They’re still here?
Little Girl: They are, and they need to be adopted together. And ARF is giving a great deal on the adoption fee for both. And they are so much fun to watch when they’re wrestling with each other.
Goldie: They are beautiful.
Ranger: As the newest member of the cattery, I have to say, this is a nice place.
George: I’m glad you’re happy here, Ranger.
Ranger: I am, but I’d much rather be in my own home with my own human. I just love humans!
Mr. Gray: I know! I’ve watched you weave in-n-out of a human’s legs, and I couldn’t believe it when you rolled onto your back to be petted, just like a dog!
Anabel: You’re pretty human-savvy, aren’t you, Ranger? I wish I could warm up to strangers as quickly as you and Little Girl do.
Little Girl: Well, it is our gift. But Anabel, you love attention and a warm lap just as much as we do. You just need a little bit of time to feel comfortable with it.
Anabel: True. I just want a human to give me a chance.
