One of my neighbors has a giraffe in his yard. He has an ostrich too. We don’t live in Africa so I’m trying to figure out how they got there. They aren’t even fenced in, but they never leave their own yard. I get all kinds of animals wandering into my yard – dogs, cats, javelinas, squirrels, lizards, and bunches of birds – but never a giraffe or an ostrich. I think I would like it if they came visiting.
I wonder what it would be like if they did. I’d have to be careful of that giraffe’s legs. They’re very long. I could probably run under the giraffe without him even noticing.
My person says I’d better be careful of the ostrich’s legs too because they can kick, and they can run very fast. If I made that ostrich mad I might be in deep trouble.
Well, my person says I have to tell you how that giraffe and ostrich got into my neighbor’s yard and why they don’t come over to my yard. In the town we live in there are a lot of artists and my neighbor is one of them. My person says he’s some kind of artist called a sculptor and he made the animals in his yard. And I thought only God made animals.
