It has been a while since I had children reading to me because of Covid but recently
I had the opportunity to work with Daniel, a young boy who happens to live in
the same apartment building as I do.
Although I liked all the children that read to me either at the library on
the island here or at the library in Verdun, Daniel is my favorite. Daniel has
a lot of ENTHUSIASM and an hilarious IMAGINATION but what I like the most about
him is that he never forgets to PLAY.
I have noticed that adults, in particular, seem to have lost their ability
to play and that makes a dog like me, who loves to play, want to go to sleep. There’s
more to life than being serious all the time!
Another thing I really like about Daniel is his SUPER POWER to read my mind.
He knows just when I need a break and will tell my dog mom:
I think Bau needs
So, Daniel and I play a game of tag. But he is always way too fast for me.
Another neat thing about Daniel is that he uses his SUPER MIND READING POWER
Bau is tired of running
And then he gives me a little pat on my head. Which I love!
We then return to our desk and I continue to listen to him read his stories.
Playing for just a short time allows us to concentrate once more. I guess
that’s the MAGIC OF PLAY.
Sometimes, I see Daniel in the elevator and I can’t help myself. I get so excited and want to jump on him
because I’m so happy to see him even though in my dog therapy training I was told not to jump on people.
It’s really difficult for me not to express all the joy in my little heart when I see him.
Soon Daniel will be moving away and that makes me sad. Already I miss him.
