November is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. People work hard all month at writing a novel, and it’s about time us dogs did the same. I’ve been invited by my friend Rocco to take part in a joint novel writing effort. The story starts on Rocco’s site here: http://roccoshouse.com/nanowrimo-officially-starts-today/. I’m writing the second installment and other dogs will add to the story on their blogs. There are still spots available, so if you’d like to join us stop by and let Rocco know.
So here’s the second part of the story:
Running from one end of the yard to the other, I’m becoming frantic. I bark, but nobody hears. What if my owner is calling for help and no one is coming to his assistance?
Another trip around the yard and determination grips me. There is a way out of here!
Without thinking my paws begin tearing into the hard soil near the fence. I stop to shake off snow. Large flakes are blanketing the ground now.
Back to digging, I double my speed. I feel like I’m scraping at rock. I’m getting nowhere. Maybe if I move over here.
This is much better. All I have to do is get this snow out of the way. Ouch! The ground is hard again. Maybe if I get a rhythm going: scrape, scrape, scrape, scrape, ka-chunk. There’s a hole here. Some little creature’s already been digging. Now, to make that hole bigger.
