The sound that brought Freckles hopping to the kitchen doorway was my husband opening the refrigerator door. Unfortunately, Scrambles also recognized that sound or else the sight of Freckles hopping across the room bought his inner curiosity out and he barked. Freckles froze in her tracks.

I grabbed Scrambles’ collar as he tried to jump to the floor from our comfy seat on the couch. I pushed him back in place and called to my husband. “You’d better bring two of whatever you’re getting. Scrambles is going to want some.”

My husband peeked around the corner with a carrot in his hand. “Scrambles won’t want a carrot,” he said.

“If he’ll eat bok choy, he’ll probably eat a carrot,” I replied and then explained what had happened.

My husband set the carrot down for Freckles and disappeared into the kitchen. He walked through the door a couple of seconds later with a carrot for Scrambles, who strained as I pulled on his collar until he had the second carrot safely settled in front of him.

I ran as fast as I could across the clearing to the sound that I had heard. I thought about the fact that the high-voiced one was sitting next to that Alien Creature, so it couldn’t be her that was making the sound. I just knew that the sound was usually followed by the handing over of delicious food, and I was going to get my share before that Alien stole it!

As I reached the portal, I heard another sound that stopped me in my tracks.

Serenity and Calm


Freckles and Scrambles each finished their stalks of bok choy. Shaking my head over a dog eating bok choy, I sat in my chair with Scrambles resting beside me as I watched Freckles grooming herself across the room. When she was done, she settled herself in for a nap. The excitement over the dog’s theft seemed to be forgotten for the moment. Maybe she’d forgiven him. We looked like the picture of serenity as the calm radiated throughout the living room.

All would have been well, except my husband decided at that moment to come in from outside and make himself a snack.

I finished my piece of yummy goodness and decided I would ignore that Alien until he went away. I spent some time grooming myself to keep my mind off of my ignoring. It’s hard to ignore something when it’s in the same room with you. If you aren’t careful, your eyes keep going back to the object of ignorification.

It wasn’t long, however, before my excellent hearing picked up a sound that brought me to my feet, jumping through the clearing.

A Peace Offering


Scrambles had stopped when I shouted to her, but then I didn't know what to do. I could take the bok choy away, but Freckles wouldn't want it back now that the dog had put his mark all over it. Besides, although I acknowledge that it was wrong for Scrambles to take the bok choy from Freckles, I was really curious to see if the dog would actually eat it.

As Scrambles ate the bok choy, Freckles stared with murderous eyes. I could see a battle may soon erupt, so I needed to do something quickly. I ran to the kitchen, opened the fridge, and pulled out the bok choy. I tore off a stalk and rushed back to the living room. I lovingly placed it in front of Freckles...a peace offering. Maybe I could stop, or at least stall, the impending war.

How to Stop a War


I stared as that Alien Creature ate my yummy green treat. How dare he steal my food and then slobber all over it! I was mad! I was furious! I was, was, was ANGRY!

I stomped my foot with the loudest thump I could muster! This meant WAR -- and I prepared myself for battle.

But, just as I was about to charge over there and show that Alien who was boss around here, the high-voiced one set a luscious piece of yummy green treat directly in front of me. This piece was bigger, greener, and decidedly juicier than the piece that that Alien runt was now devouring.

I decided that war could wait while I took a little break.

He's Eating It!


Scrambles ran across the room with the bok choy in his mouth. He plopped it down on the floor beside the coffee table and set his foot on it. At first I thought that the foot was there to stake his claim on the vegetable, however, it soon became apparent that it was there to steady the stalk while he ate it! And eat it he did, ripping the stalk into shreds and gulping it down. I stood there stunned. I'd never seen a dog go for vegetables (although an adorable little dog we used to have named Nicky would eat cooked broccoli, but only if it had butter on it!)

I knew I needed to do something fast. "Scrambles," I said in a firm voice, "STOP!"
Scrambles quit chewing on the bok choy and gave me a pitiful look.

What Was He Thinking?


The Alien Creature grabbed my yummy green treat right out from under my nose and ran across the clearing with it. I was so stunned that I was slow to react. I’d never expected him to actually STEAL my treat. I watched him run and then stop beside a big bush. He dropped the treat on the floor, put his foot on it, and glanced back at me. Was he taunting me? Was he laughing at my stupidity? Was he thanking me for the delicious treat? What was he thinking?

Stop, Thief!


Freckles stared at Scrambles for quite a long time. It almost looked as if she was attempting to communicate with him. I don’t know what she said in bunny language, but whatever it was, he must have heard, “Here, take my bok choy,” because the next thing I knew, Scrambles snatched Freckles' stock of bok choy and raced across the room with it in his mouth.

Knock it Off


The Alien Creature hovered over me as I chewed on my green yummy treat. I know that he hoped I would give him some, but I wasn’t about to share it with him. He’d have to get his own.

He started making these little squealing sounds and moving his feet up and down. “Knock it off,” I shouted, looking him in the eye, “I don’t understand your freaky alien language.”

He must have thought that I said something else, because he did NOT knock it off. His squealing got louder and then he did something really annoying.

Freckles Enjoys her Treat


When I gave Freckles her favorite treat of bok choy, she carried it to the living room and dug in. It used to be that she would only eat the bright green leaves, but lately she's been enjoying the sturdy white portion as well. She'd sunk her teeth into the back of the bok choy rib, when Scrambles hurried over and stared at her. I'd never heard of a dog liking this vegetable, so I felt fairly certain that Freckles' treat was safe. Therefore, what happened next was quite a surprise!

Yummy Treats & Plotting Aliens


While I was sitting in my cave, figuring out what to do about that Alien that had invaded my world, I thought I heard a familiar sound. I’d been aware that the high-voiced one had left the Other World. She had to be the one who made that noise. It could only mean one thing – one of my favorite treats. I jumped to my feet and ran through the cave door. I needed to get there before that Alien. I didn’t want it stealing my special treat.goodies.

I screeched to a halt. There stood the high-voiced one at the portal of the Slippery Ground Land holding out a piece of my favorite green treat. I snatched it and dug right into its yummy goodness. So lost was I in scrumptious delight, I almost forgot about the Alien Creature. Almost, but not quite -- I could still see it out of the corner of my eye staring at me, probably plotting something terrible.

Deb Gets and Idea


I could see that Freckles was confused and a little angry. Her thumping as she ran off to her box was a strong indication that her annoyance quota had been reached. I wondered what I could do to make it up to her. After all, I was the one who had brought Scrambles into the house.

Suddenly, an idea came to me. I knew the way to get back into Freckles’ good graces.

An Annoyed Bun


After the Alien Creature laughed at me, he turned to the high-voiced one and winked. I had no idea what was going on with this little guy. Was he playing some kind of game? Did he think he was being funny? Well, I couldn’t let him get the upper hand. But, I needed time to think, so I thumped my foot to indicate my displeasure and ran to my cave where I climbed inside.
