Spaniels’ Play Date


Sweet little Bailey, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, came over to visit Emma, the English cocker, for a play date.

The first thing she noticed was the outside dog kennel.

“What’s that building?” she asks Emma. “It looks like a hotel.”

“Oh, that’s my outdoor doghouse where I can stay safely when the people are away shopping. I have room to walk around in the playpen and I have a doghouse where I can have a nap. It’s locked up tight so nothing can hurt me while the people are away.”

“And you like it in there?”

“Sure, it’s okay. But never mind the dog hotel, Bailey. Come see what I found. This could be interesting.”

“What is it?” Bailey asks.

“Ewwww … it stinks!” says Bailey.

“Never mind that,” Emma says, “Just come and check it out. I think I found some Glosette Raisins.”

“Are you kidding me? I know rabbit poo when I see it.”

“And I can smell it too! No way I’m coming over there … and you shouldn’t be eating it either! Mom! I wanna go home now.”

“Aw, Bailey. Do you really have to go? Well, give me a kiss, and come back soon.”

“Only if you brush your teeth, Emma.”

“No worries,” says Emma. “Anneli brushes my teeth every night.”


“Huh! Who would’ve thought she’d be such a picky eater? I like Glosette Raisins.”

  11. Ha ha. We used to call then deer duds (as in the chocolate candy “Milk Duds.”) Rabbit duds sound delicious too. I’m glad Emma gets a tooth brushing every night… definitely before kisses. πŸ™‚

  13. So adorable, Anneli. ❀ I'm going to try adult toothpaste on my dog. He hates having his teeth brushed. But he still comes when I rattle the treat bag in his face.
