Dearest Zig

Today, you gave me the scare of a lifetime when you thought I was on the 4-wheeler and sprinted off after it towards the corner where the highway meets the gravel road. This is the place numerous pups before you came to their demise. I'm so thankful you managed to hear me with your radar ears, screaming your name as I sprinted after you. I don't know how you heard me, but I'm so glad you did. You deserved this dip in the pond afterwards. -your Mom.

Ready to backpack?

Mom put on my shoes and new raincoat and I immediately turned to stone. I thought we were playing that statue game where you have to hold really still.
Well, maybe I'm not ready. This garb is weird.
At least mom didn’t get the raincoat that had a hood on it. That really would have bothered me.
