This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I’ve been under the weather this week. At least that’s what the persons told me. I just know I haven’t felt good. But not feeling good hasn’t taken away my smile. Not much can.
When I don’t feel good it’s not fun. Not fun at all. But going outside six times in a night can be kind of fun when you get to see things you normally don’t. You know. When you’re supposed to be asleep.
Like the person walking around in pajamas at camp singing at 2 a.m. or the squirrel who likes to bury nuts under the RV.
Or the raccoon disguised as an alligator in the marsh. Yes. He scared me.
We all get sick. But I wish that dogs could be fancy sick like you persons with our own indoor facilities.
Sure would have saved Girl Person from trying to put on pants to go outside.
It’s been nice to be in a little warmer weather and by the water. But it goes to show that without your health, everything else comes second. Happiness takes more than than one piece of pie.
You’ve got your health, your family and friends and the place you are. Everyone needs all the pieces.
And of you’re missing one, it’s time to get another slice. You deserve it.
Being under the weather happens to everyone. Sometimes it’s serious and sometimes it passes. But I have a choice. I can either keep worrying about getting sick again. Or I can concentrate on the times I feel good. I pick that.
Nothing in our world is at its best all year round. Even flowers aren’t in bloom all of the time. So pick them and enjoy them while you can. With pie.
We will be in this Mississippi place until Tuesday. And then? No idea. Stay tuned and don’t forget we have a new bedtime story on Saturday! You don’t want to miss this one.
