A Beautiful Wisconsin Day

May 17

Kickapoocarride

Today, Myles and I rode with Dad through the green valleys
around our house. It is so beautiful living here in Wisconsin.
I wish my friends in Tuvalu would visit me this summer.  I know they would love it here.  I could also teach them about foraging for different edible plants up the valley and in the prairie.

The winter might be too cold for them but I think they would enjoy snow shoeing, sledding and even ice fishing too.

Myles Game Day

Apr 19

Dear Diary,

When Myles wants me to play with him he walks up to me and
drops his ball on my foot. I am glad the ball is made of
recycled paper and not a bowling ball. Today he wanted
me to play the game he invented.

The game does not have a winner or loser. Maybe Myles
is the winner since got me to stop studying and play
his game.

As you know his invented game involves him going to the
top of the stairs and dropping the ball down all the steps
to me. Then according to game rules I am supposed to throw
ball up to him. He catches the ball with his mouth and
then politely drops the ball on the step below him.
The ball bounces down all the steps to the bottom
where I am.

However, he only drops said ball if I use the command “Drop It.” Otherwise he just sits on the landing at the top of the steps and plays by himself with the ball. Or he likes to drop his front paws over the edge of the landing and look down at me and wait for me to plead for him to drop the ball.

It is a fun game to play with him but I always get tired before
he does.

Stinky Sunfish

As I mentioned to you yesterday, I am starting a Great Year LIST for
WISCONSIN FISH. I know I said I am including any Wisconsin fish I
eat in the list. Yuck! I did not think about seeing one of the fish
on my list carried away by Myles. He found a dead,
ORANGE SPOTTED SUNFISH by the side of the Kickapoo River and was
carrying it around in his mouth!

I chased after Myles and told him to drop the fish, but that made him only run faster. Finally, I yelled “Yummies! Yummies!,” and he stopped
in his tracks and turned around. YUMMIES are the word we taught him for
snacks, or treats.

Myles walked up to me with the fish in his mouth and then sat politely
in front of me waiting for me to give him a snack! Then I said “Drop It!”
and he carefully let the fish fall out of his mouth onto the rocks.
I picked up the rotten fish by the tail and threw it into the river.

My chipmunk dream

Sep 17

Last night I dreamed I was a chipmunk. My dog Myles and his friends have been watching the chipmunks so much in my dream I imagined it was me they were watching. It was very strange being a chipmunk and seeing Myles staring at me through the glass door of our back porch.

Chipmunk salsa buffet

Sep 15

Today, Myles and our animal friends watched the chipmunks through the screen door on the back porch the whole day. There is a rumor in the forest valley that the chipmunks are opening and all-you-can-eat salsa buffet. There is already an all-you-can-eat nacho chips buffet near our house that some other chipmunks opened.

My mom said she hopes that the new salsa buffet opening does not mean that the hot peppers and tomatoes in our gardens start disappearing.

Chipmunk watching friends

chipmunk watching audienceToday Myles watched the chipmunks out our screen porch door with two of his friends Cecilia the hen and Harold the bunny. I think I heard Harold say he saw the chipmunks wearing very small hard hats and carrying a tiny ladder. Cecilia commented on how the chipmunks seemed very secretive. Myles barked a few times but mostly he moved his head around while his tail quickly wagged back and forth.
