Hi my Dad Morgan
So yesterday was quite hectic. I had to give Mommy a really hard bite because I got my foot stuck in the window and it was unbelievably sore, and I was crying really loudly, and when Mommy came running she didn’t help me fast enough so I bit her hand as hard as I could so that she would get it out faster. Mommy said when she felt that pain from my new big teeth, it gave her Hercules’ strength so that she could lift my whole body up and free my foot! So remember that – if you need someone to be really strong – just bite as hard as you can!! I was really glad that Mommy got my foot out – I think it might have broken if it stayed there. I’m feeling better now. Mommy isn’t though – she has cream and plasters everywhere and she shouted at Daddy because he touched her hand too hard when he was cleaning it.
So Mommy let me have special privileges after I hurt my foot – I did big limps for special effect – and I got cheese and cuddles, but still not allowed to chase Zalo? Dad even gave us a big ball to play with. But that’s broken now.
We went for a swim too – that was fun. I’ve got a special swimming style that Mom and Dad call ‘tiny baby legs style’ – I only use my front legs and curl my back legs up!! Dex isn’t so good at the swimming… he tried to do it like a fish but NO GILLS!! Daddy had to teach him how to hold his head up and then he did it right the second time. Mommy wouldn’t let us get out at the side – she says we have to swim to the steps so Dad showed us how. Now Mommy is happy because she says we’re clever to learn so quickly!!
Today I went in all by myself for lots of swims but Dex has to get carried in – so lazy!
After we swam we went to cuddle with Mommy on her towel. Mommy doesn’t like to share. She’s just being ugly though – she always tells Cu and Morgan that “sharing is caring”.
I’m happy to report that we’ve made some serious progress with the garden!! We’ve made three nice pathways through some of the plant beds and two nice big flat areas to lie and play on!! Mom doesn’t like our work – she says we can play on the grass – but that’s boring. Our big green playmat is still the best though! Sometimes Dad and Cu jump on it together and then we lie on it so we can also bounce – the best fun ever!! And me and Dex are quite good soccer players too! That game is fun. We’re also trying to learn how to do the skateboard – it’s a little tricky at times but when you get it just right it’s awesome!!!
And I’m teaching Dexie how to read! We take Daddy’s newspapers (and last week we used a book) and then we read. Dex didn’t like it so much so I said that if he reads a page his reward is to eat it afterwards!! So we read one or two newspapers every day and so far – one book!!! Clever hey!? Reading AND recycling!! I truly am genius!
I have to go now – Mommy just turned the sprinklers on and I LOVE to play in them… I also see that the ones we made to lie down are standing up again – better go and fix that!!
Lots of love from me and Dexie,
