  • I have substituted King for Queen

Pauline here.  I just want you to know that Donkeys are NOT stubborn.  Donkeys are sometimes scared about doing new things.  A horse will cross a stream, but a donkey needs to know how deep it is.  Once he or she understands that there is no danger, a donkey will cross the stream.

It was Dolly’s birthday. Brenda and Jeff took her to their favorite pet store.

Unknown-5

image048

“Dolly, pick out a toy for your birthday,” said Jeff.
Dolly barked and wagged her tail.

Brenda laughed when Dolly came back with a shining blue ball.

 

“So you want us to play baseball with you?” Brenda said as she paid for the ball.
Dolly barked and wagged her tail.

image050
The Kelly kids had decorated Dolly’s bed with colored ribbons. Mrs. Kelly took out a small doggie birthday cake.

Dolly had good manners and took small bites. The children had their own small birthday cake with Dolly’s name written on it.

“Well, kids,” said Mr. Kelly. “Let’s take Dolly and her new ball to the park.”

Brenda and Jeff took their baseball bats. Dolly sat down in the hallway, and waited for Mr. Kelly to put her on a leash. She wanted to chase that blue ball and bring it back again and again and again.

image003images-6

Jeff wearing his favorite blue baseball uniform pitched the ball towards Brenda. His sister watched the ball carefully and then, wham! slam! bam! She hit the blue ball hard.

The ball bounced off the grass.
It bounced off a park bench.
It bounced off a small boy’s head                                                                            And it bounced into a baby stroller.

image056

The mother pushed the stroller with the ball in it to the grocery store. “Goo, gee, gah!” cooed the baby, when he found the ball. “Coo, wee, coo!” he gurgled with happiness. He showed it to every customer who told him what a nice ball he owned.

Now, the baby’s older brother was jealous of his new brother.

image058

The mean brother grabbed the ball out of the baby’s hand and threw across the store.

The ball hopped over the vegetables.

image060

It bounced over the ice cream

image062

It whizzed over the tin cans

and it bounced into a grandmother’s shopping basket.

image065 image067

 

 

 

 

 

The grandmother did not notice the bouncing blue ball. She took her basket to the checkout girl.

image069
Suzie wasn’t paying much attention and did not see the blue ball. She was too busy thinking about meeting her boyfriend after work

image071

“Only one more hour to work before I see my boyfriend, Larry.”

The grandmother took a taxi home from the grocery store.

Unknown-3

 The grandmother opened the front door and put her basket on the kitchen table.
“Holly, golly!” said the grandmother when she saw the blue ball. “I’m much too old to play with you!.” The blue ball was disappointed because lots of grandmothers played ball. This grandmother walked. outside. She opened the trash bin and plopped the ball inside it.

image075

The bouncing blue ball was now all alone and in the dark. It had really enjoyed being hit by Brenda and sailing over the trees and into that baby’s stroller. The bouncing blue ball really liked the baby, but not his mean brother. Now, the blue ball felt that no one wanted it. It felt sad.

It wanted to continue to bounce and make children happy.

Samson is a Goldendoodle.   His parents are a Golden Retriever and a poodle.  The combination of dogs gives Samson a golden look with a curly coat of a poodle.  Isn’t he cute?

Samson lives in New York city.  His owners took him by boat to Nova Scotia which is an eastern province of Canada.  Wherever Samson goes, people want to stroke and talk to him.  Samson, of course, loves the attention.

Retrievers and poodles love water, so naturally Samson wanted to run on the beach and go for a swim.  Samson wanted to join his owners in as many ways as he could.  Enjoy the photos.

Samson goes for a long walk and a swim with his owners.

This is the Bay of Funday which has the highest tides in the world.  Here you can see Samson on a rock.  The tide was out when the picture was taken.  If the tide was to suddenly come in, Samson would have to swim to shore.

I always bring Teddy with me.

It was a long walk for Samson and his owners.  He was tired and he decided to rest.

Samson was such a good dog that his owners treated him with breakfast in bed.  Naturally, they gave him a newspaper so he could see the news.  I am sure he was looking for news of other dogs around the world.

Samson relaxes in bed.

HappyHunting-Ground-1

When a young person loses a pet, it is a painful experience.  This story is about a dying horse called Chestnut.

 

 

 

The much loved Chestnut
The much loved Chestnut

Before you decide never to buy such a depressing book, know that it has a remarkable moments.  In the book, I mention the “Happy Hunting Grounds.”  Native North American People (and others around the world) believe that all humans and animals will be reunited in the HH     Grounds.  The story has a happy ending.  It also points out the role of unicorns.  It is a story that gives hope in the fact of death.

Unknown-6

I have also named the “Happy Hunting Grounds” as THE PLACE.  It is a life after death location.  I wanted it to be universal, so it is not called ‘heaven.’

 

 

 

BONUS FEATURE: HORSES, DONKEYS AND MULES

These are some of my favorite animals. In this bonus feature I have covered each of these breeds of animal.   I have also looked at the Przewalski (the only true existing wild herself). Other wild horses are the generations of domesticated horses that have escaped.

Przewalski's truly wild horse

Horses are extremely clever but no one should stand behind a horse.  They have an automatic kick backwards if they are startled or scared.  Do you know the relatives of horses?   Would you include a rhino as a close family member?

Donkeys: Do you know which part of the world Donkeys still run wild?  With maps, I will tell you.  How long has the donkey been a working animal?  The answer may surprise you.
