I wish Sparky was here with me ... I miss him so bad ...
He is at a neighbor's house, where he will remain until my parents get back from their cruise. They went to the Mexican Riviera for a week They left two days ago; that means I won't see Sparky for five more days.
I love Sparky with all my heart. He is a floppy eared Basset hound with droopy eyes and a sad expression, but he is really a great dog. He is two years old and is my best companion. He sleeps with me at night and plays with me outside and loves to lie on my lap while I am reading or playing my games on the computer.
Lately, though, Sparky has been sick with an infection and he just got out of the doggie hospital. He has to take yucky pink medicine and has to take it easy until he feels stronger. I was worried about him because he nearly died, but he's doing much better. Mom felt that it would be better if Sparky stayed at the sitter's until they got back from their Mexican cruise.
Maybe that is a good idea, but it isn't easy for me because I miss him when Sparky isn't around!
To pass the time I have been trying to keep my mind off of my pet, but it's hard when I see his sleeping basket by my bed, his toys strewn about the floor of my room, a black and white photo of the two of us together that sits by my computer on my desk, and his water and food bowls, which sit empty. I know Sparky will be back, but it's hard not having him here. It's about as bad as when he was at the doggie hospital, but at least this time I know he's getting better.
I think I shall write Sparky a letter, but I don't know if he will understand what's written on it. Mom and Dad may think it is a stupid idea, but I can't help it. If kids can write letters to their grandparents, brothers, sisters, or parents, then why can't they write letters to their pets?? After all, pets have feelings too!
Well, I'm gonna write a letter to Sparky and mail it to the neighbor's. Or maybe I can just walk to the sitter's and pay Sparky a visit. I'm sure he will like that! Suddenly I feel a little bit happier already ....
