I’ve always thought bikes were pretty scary things, and I bark and bark at them to make sure they don’t try to attack Mommy. Yeah, that’s it, I’m doing it to keep Mommy safe!

But last night, on our late walk, we saw a bike–and the person on it turned out to be a nice man who sometimes gives me treats! And he spoke to me! While the bike was still moving! I didn’t know that could happen! I was so astonished, I stopped barking, and wagged my tail about him!

It’s been awful sticky hot here, and neither one of us has like that. My kitty sister Aquavit is okay with it; she says she’s Warm Weather Creature, and besides it’s cooler in the cellar and I should try hanging out there if I’m hot. But the cellar is at the other end of the cellar stairs, and I don’t trust those things. They go underground. How can you trust that? But Aquavit says that’s the whole point. Cats are weird!
