Dig This

Uniformed cops came with shovels and dug around the cactus where Iggy had lifted his leg. Iggy had been trapped in his house so long I’d forgotteen how much fun he was. I went over and gave him a nip. He rolled right over, all his paws in the air. That Iggy!

The cops turned up some rocks and a rusty old spoon. That rusty old spoon looked interesting and I wanted it, but one of the cops stuck it in an evidence bag.

“Nothing just vanishes into thin air,” Lt. Stine said. He looked down at me and Iggy. “What did you dogs do with that film?”

Iggy stopped pawing the air. I wagged my tail.

    It's too bad Lt. Stine doesn't understand pawing and tail-wagging language. A dilemma!

    Isn't it illegal to dig up cactuses? cacti?

    Apparently Lt. Stine didn't grow up with a dog. Isn't that too bad?

    Yes, they're protected– you need a license to dig them up, especially if they're big and have arms. I was told it takes seventy years for one of those cacti to *start* growing an arm, and longer still for multiple arms. Wow.

    As for Freckles, my kids make him a little unsettled, so I haven't seen him in a couple of days. But Chet, we adopted a member of your nation this weekend! Not to foster, but to keep, unless he *eats* cats… We're calling him Wojo, like the guy from Barney Miller– you ever see that show? No dogs, but Wojo is a man who reminds me of a big, slightly dopey dog.

    Anyway, our Wojo likes other dogs, so when he's had a couple more days to get used to our house and to start to feel like he belongs, I'm hoping we can introduce him to Freckles. Both dogs like other guys like you do, so I'm hoping it will help them both to feel more at ease.

    And hey, playing.
