Dexter’s Day: Phew!
I’m sorry I didn’t talk to you yesterday
but I couldn’t talk to anyone
because I couldn’t open my mouth or eyes
because I’d been naughty and had been in the bushes
in the garden
very quickly when Mummy wasn’t looking –
and a HUGE BIG MONSTER with 7 heads and 14 eyes
I ran in to my Mummy
who looked like she was going to cry:
My face got very big, very quickly and my eyes closed –
and , as Mummy rang the vet and my Daddy,
I was crying and running around trying to get away from the pain.
Daddy drives fast!
Anni, the lovely vet, was waiting for me
and gave me an injection
and then tried to look in my mouth
but it was too big and solid –
but she told Mummy it wasn’t a snake bite,
So Mummy breathed out loud then cried.
I wanted to tell her I was okay
but I wasn’t for a while –
so we went home and I slept on her knee
Then Daddy’s knee,
Then I had honey and something soft
Then we all went to bed –
But I know Mummy watched over me all night
Until I got into bed beside her and Daddy this morning –
and my face is going small again!
And I can see –
So I’m off to look for the monster,
and I’ll growl at it –
But maybe not today –
Coz Mummy won’t let me out of her sight.
At least until I’m 100 apparently!
