Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, George was making googoo eyes at Audrey.
Bobbie : I have some big news! Everyone gather ’round!
George: Hey, Audrey, come with me to hear the news.
Mr. Gray: Audrey’s with me, George.
George: She can be with both of us. Right, Audrey?
Bobbie: Just get over here! ARF has three dogs now.
Mr. Gray: Where are they? Tell us about them.
Bobbie: Their names are Archie, Veronica, and Betty, and they’re very friendly. Archie is only a puppy, maybe ten-weeks old.
Archie: (bounding into the room) That’s right! Who wants to play? I wanna play!
Bobbie: Hey, Archie! Good to meet you. Where are Veronica and Betty?
Betty: (entering the room with Veronica) Right here. I’m Betty the Chihuahua, and this is Veronica. We’re not certain of her lineage, but we think she has min-pin in her.
Veronica: Hi! Betty forgot to tell you I’m younger than a year, and I think Betty is maybe just a little older.
Betty: You’re right, Veronica. And we’re still trying to figure out Archie’s lineage. We think he might have some terrier or bull dog in him. Who knows?
George: Regardless, you three are good- looking dogs.
Veronica: Thanks! I think Archie and I will go play now. Betty, how about you?
Betty: Sure. I like to play, but remember, you two, I’m only 6 pounds, so take it easy on me.
Veronica: Betty, I’m only 7 pounds, and so is Archie.
Bobbie: (aside to George) Hey, George, you have competition. I just saw Mr. Gray rubbing noses with Audrey. Thought you’d like to know.
George: What? All these cats, aside from Gray and me, are females. Why does he have to choose Audrey?
Who will be Audrey’s BF? How long will the pups be with ARF? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of Days of our Nine Lives each week.
