Doggie Diaries: Adventures at the Library

From Dakota’s Diary: Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I talk a lot. I am the most talkative PAL dog to visit the library. I simply have a lot to say. I sing as well. Secretly I would love to audition for American Idol. I think I have the “It” factor. I’ve been jamming to the Disney Aladdin Karoke CD in the backyard. I break for carrots, and then back to practicing.

It was a relaxing evening in the library tonight. I lay down and rested while Miss Julie read I Don’t Like Gloria  by Margaret Chamberlain. The poor doggie in the book found it challenging living with a new kitty in his house. In my house I have three kitties. Fortunately, no drama there! We are all chums. I look out for them, and they look up to me.

There were lots of children in the library tonight. They were comfortable and cuddly with me. I love children. They smell delicious! And sometimes they have a bit of lunch left on them! Bonus.

Well, I cannot let grass grow under my feet. If I am going to be a superstar, then I need to hone my skills. Think I’ll work on some folk songs. I love the book Home on the Range: John A. Lomax and His Cowboy Songs by Deborah Hopkinson. It’s important for an artist to be versatile and diverse, and I love the low drone sounds; they work well with my howls.

Woof, Woof to all!
