My Day
by Gracie Phillip

Before today I didn't know what a Dog Park was.  There's a new one that just opened in Frostburg and today I was enlightened.

We entered into the gates that said 'Small and Senior Dogs'.  I'm not sure which one I am... but it didn't matter.  I was the only one there.

I ran... and I ran... and I ran

Then I took a break.  

I was parched.

Rissie and I bounced around and played a while, then I got tired.  

Dear Diary,

Today I went to a Dog Park.  I had fun until another dog came and wanted to be friends.  She was fluffy and white... quite pretty she was...  but I didn't like her eyes so I snapped at her.  Mom smacked my butt then muzzled me with her hand.  I hate it when she does that!  All the way home in the car all I heard was...  'Gracie, you're bad', 'Gracie's going to go to obedience school', 'Stop drooling on my neck, Gracie!' 'Gracie doesn't play well with others'.  Gracie, Gracie, Gracie. 

 Hey, I didn't ask to go to the dog park.  

I think they're serious about the obedience school thing and I'm going to try to be on my best behavior.  Just in case.

Glad this day's over.  Gracie.
