Being a very good therapy dog for humans, I like to help out some of my working human friends. I also like to try new treats and new things. This new adventure involves numbers! I like numbers a lot. And treats. Especially large numbers of treats.
My counting friend, Amanda, is feeling very sick today. She needs a very good substitute dog for humans. She said she would give me treats if I played numbers for her today.
I like to play, and I like treats. Amanda and I had a deal together with the both of us. When you are sick, it is good to have very good friends and substitute dogs for humans to take care of you. Naps and treats always make me feel better. I let Amanda know that she needs to have a nap and a treat to make her tummy happier.
Before she left for her nap, she taught me everything she knew about numbers. I learned fastly and was so excited to help Amanda play new number games. I will do such a good job that I will get whole handfuls of treats. Amanda has left her numbers in very good paws.
Amanda already looks much better as she walks out the door. I feel better too, because now I have a whole day of number games to play today. I am now a very good counting dog for humans.
Amanda left me some very important disguising supplies. She said her supervisor might come looking for her, and it would be easier for everyone if I just looked like her, which I do. That’s okay for me, because it is important to look the part of a very good counting Amanda.
Now I really feel like an counting dog who is keeping very good counting books. It is fun to help out friends and play Amanda for a day. I hope she feels better soon so she can eat more treats for her tummy. Maybe I can go eat treats with her after and take naps. Being sick does not sound too bad. It sounds like what I do every day.
The supervisor man came into the office and wanted something called a report. I gave him what I had made, and he said, “Great work, Amanda. You get a raise!” I hope a raise tastes like treats. If it is a treat, it will taste very good.
Numbers are fun to play with, but that was a long day with lots of counting of numbers. I am so tired and need to take a nap like Amanda. Naps are very important after counting numbers all day.
Amanda told me that this brown box is a great napping place. I like this brown box, so I will nap here. What a great day for a counting dog.
