Hey, how come I don’t get to go?
That’s not fair.
That big camera always wins out over me.
It’s not like I’m gonna break your camera or anything.
I won’t yank on the leash and pull you over on top of the camera.
Besides, if you fell on your camera wouldn’t it be your fault?
So what are you taking pictures of?
That’s not very interesting.
You should be taking pictures of me.
There’s a fire?
You can’t leave me in dog jail if there’s a fire.
What if I get stuck in here and I can’t get out?
Those cats would leave the house without me.
You know how they are.
Are you sure it’s not that close?
Okay, I’ll look at the pictures.
Yeah, I guess it is far away.
But what if it comes closer?
See, I told you this was gonna come closer.
Let me out of this dog jail and grab onto my leash!
I’ll protect you.
Oh, and leave your big camera at home.
P.S. My person says we are safe from this fire, but asks for prayer for the people who have been evacuated from their homes, and for all the firefighters who are fighting this fire. This is the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona between Sedona and Flagstaff.
