I open my eyes and I see another dog I could play with. I look away and I notice the sweet fragrant grass at my feet. And just my luck, no one has claimed it. I could lie down and eat a bit and roll around in it claiming it as all my own! My little patch of heaven! Ah yes that would be good!
I look up and I see mom. I could run over. I'm so sure she'd be pleased to see me. I would receive many butt scratched and ear rubs. I resist the urge at the moment as I look past mom to see woods FULL of sticks just waiting to be chewed.
Ah all the things I could do in a minute. I bet if I tried hard I could do them all. But there's one thing that I just cannot do(at least when its most important) is sit AND stay!
Especially with all these people staring and holding their breath like the world is going to end. Mom is actually looking a bit distressed.
Maybe she's worried that I've been sitting too long and might be too cramped to give her my victory leap and lick. Perhaps I'll just stand and stretch so she knows I'm okay. Yep that's what I'll do, stretchhhhhhhh and stand. See that dog down there did it, so no biggie! Oops, mom's looking even more concerned. Maybe I'll just lay down now like that dog over there. Yes, 3 tricks for the price of one. I have to get bonus points for that!
Yep, that seemed to work, the humans are heading back now...here comes mom, WAG WAG WAG!!!!Phew, that was the longest minute. So glad its over. Now I'm already laying down for the 3 minute down stay and then its playtime! Hmmm....I wonder what I could do in 3 minutes.....

What about the closet? Yes! And even better it’s open. I'll just crawl in here way in the back and hide it under all these shoes my mom never wears. I'll have to move a few out of the way...DIG, DIG, DIG..... Ah, yes that's perfect. It will never be found. I'll just quietly back out of this closet and go about my business. No one will ever expect a....Oh DRAT, mom has been watching me the entire time! And she's laughing at me. Her face is turning all red and I think she's crying. Maybe she's mad I messed with all her shoes. Well I best go get my chewy.
As I come out of the closet my mom has this very concerned look on her face. She takes my chewy and says, "Come on Scout, I have the perfect place for it." She walks over to the big white box and she places it on top. Oh boy why didn't I think of that. The great white box will surely protect my most wonderful chewy. And those pointy eared devils won't be able to do a thing about it. Then my mom lets out a long sigh, laughs and then asks me, "Now are you ready to go the dog park?"
My response: "Oh boy am I! Maybe I can find my most precious stick!"
